Firex, which is now owned by Kidde, sells smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers. The company also carries a variety of security accessories and products, such as home automation monitors, escape ladders and auxiliary devices.
Fire extinguishers sold by Firex are for residential and commercial use. There are different sizes of extinguishers available in each category. There are also a variety of different smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms sold separately, as well as combination units.
The smoke alarms are 10-year battery-powered alarms. All of the alarms take lithium batteries, which are long-lasting. The alarms remain on 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Since the National Fire Protection Association recommends replacing them every 10 years, the battery shouldn't need to be replaced in these alarms.
