Fire-Lite Alarms, a Northford, Conn. company, is recalling about 530 fire alarm control panels found in commercial facilities, such as office buildings, because one model series fails to successfully sound an alarm in the event of a fire. “The recalled fire alarm control panels used with an SLC-2LS expander module can fail to sound an alarm in the event of a fire,” according to the CPSC.
The CPSC and Fire-Lite Alarms said building managers should contact Fire-Lite immediately for a free software upgrade by calling 1-800-627-3473 or visiting its website at www.firelite.com. The company is also contacting its customers directly. The recalled products were sold by authorized wholesalers and distributors nationwide between October 2008 and March 2010 for between about $875 for the expander module and $2,285 for the control panel. The control panel is the main portion of the fire alarm system. The software in the expander module tells the system to sound an alarm and flash warning lights. The words “Fire-Lite Alarms by Honeywell” and the model number are located on the front of the fire alarm control panel.
