A Consumer Reports analysis of National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) showed more than half of all house fires throughout a seven-year span had appliances –like dishwashers, refrigerators and microwaves– listed as the primary cause. Our 20 amp Fire Guard Outlet was designed to connect to these common fire culprits and proactively reduce the risk of costly fire and smoke damage. At the first sign of smoke or rapidly rising heat, the device will sound an alarm, light up red and immediately cut power to the outlet and connected device BEFORE a fire breaks out. This added layer of safety protects the home and adds peace of mind in an increasingly automated world.
The single gang electrical outlet (with one NEMA 5-20 receptacle and one interlock switch connector) will replace your existing junction box (wall outlet), and the smoke and heat sensor should mount alongside select devices and appliances.While installation does involve working with electrical components, it's relatively easy, particularly for those with basic electrical knowledge. For anyone lacking experience or comfort with electrical work, it's advisable to seek professional assistance for a safe and precise installation.
Use the 20 amp Fire Guard Outlet as an added layer of safety with dishwashers, gas dryers, audio/visual closets, 3D printers, microwaves, lithium battery charging stations, grow lights and other devices that are left powered on while unattended. This can also be used in infrequently visited areas of the home such as crawl spaces, attics and basements where larger equipment is often stowed, powered and unmonitored.
Safety is at the core of everything we do at Docking Drawer, which is why we rigorously test all outlets and obtain the appropriate recognition and safety listings. The Fire Guard Outlet holds Electrical Testing Laboratories (ETL) Listing as an Interlock device, emphasizing its safety and functionality. It is intended for supplementary protection and does not take the place of an approved smoke detector, as required by code.
