The new Solo A5 and Solo A10 have been designed to replace the Solo A3 and are suitable for testing all types of smoke detectors installed into buildings all around the world. Solo A5 is positioned very much as the ‘every day’ tester. If a non-flammable solution is essential, there is the Solo A10.
The Solo A5 fits directly into the Solo 330/332, but can also be used as a hand-held test gas canister. Test gas works by delivering smoke particles to the detector under test, replicating the conditions of smoke from a fire in a safe and clean manner.
Solo A5 and Solo A10 have been created to use different gasses to the Solo A3, this is because a gas within the A3 called HFC 134a has been identified in recent years by world governing bodies as harmful to the environment. Therefore, as of the 31st December 2017 No Climb will no longer be able to manufacture Solo A3
