Honeywell extends warranty period for fire alarm products

ATLANTA, July 28 - Honeywell Fire Systems announced Tuesday that it has extended the limited warranty of all of its fire alarm products manufactured in the U.S. from 18 months to 36 months.

The warranty extension, which covers the company’s Notifier, Fire-Lite Alarms, Gamewell-FCI and Silent Knight-brand fire systems, is retroactive to all products manufactured on or after Jan. 1, 2009.

In a prepared statement, Honeywell Fire Systems Vice President of Operations John Chetelat said that the warranty extension is another means for providing support to customers.

"We have rigid quality-assurance standards employed throughout our product development and manufacturing processes. But if a product is found to have an inherent defect, we want our customers to trust we'll back them, he said."
