For residential houses and dwellings, installation of autonomous smoke detectors has been made obligatory by the MORANGE law (by 8th March 2015 at the latest).
In light of the non-availability of the devices, this obligation was postponed to 1st January 2016 by the MACRON law.
The ionic detectors, which were installed as a matter of urgency, are now prohibited; ionisation chambers contain a patch of Americium 243, which emits radioactive charged particles. Ionic autonomous smoke detectors are therefore very dangerous to health. The decree of 18th November 2011, which derogates from article 1333-2 of the Public Health Code, had not been taken into account in 2015.
Autonomous smoke detector owners – the fire detection professionals, and the maintenance operators – will be required to replace these devices prior to 31st December 2017, for the purpose of reinstalling optical or photo-optical detectors.
As these detectors need to be declared with insurance companies, what will happen in the event of a disaster or installation failure?
It will be too late to read the ever-famous Insurance Code.
All the more so seeing that a very large number of test gas aerosols are filled with a butane-propane propellant gas, the danger factor of which is well-known. Extremely flammable and explosive, it is astonishing that people are allowed to use an igniting gas precisely for testing fire detectors…
unfortunately, the grave losses that occur due to gas leaks in buildings are only too frequent.
However, butane / propane aerosols have been banned in supermarkets for many years.
On industrial installations, butane / propane features the same dangers – with deliberate emissions. Furthermore, butane-propane is a propellant gas which is an organo-volatile compound. OVCs whose emissions are regulated in industrial settings for environmental reasons, would also pose pathological risks on a toxicological level; should they penetrate the organism, it would be likely to result in the production of various toxic metabolites which would spread across the organs (as a result of reaction with proteins or nucleic acids).
With this, on the basis of the existing evidence, fire protection professionals have started to use test gas aerosols which contain a non-inflammable propellent: HFC 134 a.
HFC 134 a has a global warming potential of 1300 – it is almost ten times greater than the maximum limit (150) authorised by the Directive F.GAZ 517/2014; a directive which, come 1st January 2018, will prohibit the production of this gas and its marketing, and mandate that all packages that contain it be withdrawn from the market and destroyed.
DETECT GEF 2000, developed by iBiotec, now offers a lasting solution.
Non-inflammable, no PRP properties, no ODP properties, can be used with all types of detectors.
2 nozzles are always supplied with each aerosol:
therefore meeting all needs.
