Only a few days ago a carbon monoxide gas leak sickened 49 Pennsylvania inmates in a county jail. Out of the 49 inmates, 5 were hospitalized. The carbon monoxide source was the heating and ventilation system.
Carbon monoxide (CO) can be easily released by the burning of hydrocarbons such as gasoline, natural gas or propane. Those exposed to carbon monoxide can suffer from headaches, dizziness, fatigue and nausea.
This life safety hazard could have been prevented with a smoke & CO detection system such as the IntelliQuad Plus FCO-851 product.
This world-class fire and CO detection will provide you a practical solution for advanced detection of fire and noxious gases. For fire, the IntelliQuad product combines smoke, CO, light/flame and heat sensing into one unit to sense multiple components of a fire.
It’s important to acknowledge that CO is colorless, odorless and a very deadly gas. CO can accumulate in any building setting.
The IntelliQuad Plus FCO-851 has the following features:
Separate Co detection signal
Highest nuisance alarm immunity
Automatic drift compensation of smoke sensor and CO cell.

Protecting building occupants from carbon monoxide risk is crucial. You cannot put a dollar value on one person losing his or her life. Smoke sensor and Co detection are necessary because the general public needs to be protected from such danger as well as their valuables.
Fireline Corporation is here to educate and offer you the best Fire and Co detection systems. We can even show you how effective the IntelliQuad Plus FCO-851 works in our multi system/multi user demo room.
Don’t be a victim to CO risk. It can happen anywhere, even hotels, which are rarely equipped with CO alarms (although the National Fire Protection Association highly promotes that CO alarms should be near all bedrooms). Read this USA TODAY’s article Hotel Guests Face Carbon Monoxide Risk to learn more about the dangers of undetected CO.
