4.8-oz Solo A10 Smoke Detector Tester

Solo A10 Smoke Detector Tester sprays synthetic smoke that’s ideal for functional tests of smoke detectors. This UL-listed aerosol smoke detector tester may be used by hand (like a can of spray paint) or in tandem with Solo-brand “no-climb” testing accessories. For contractors or inspectors that frequently test smoke detectors, QRFS also offers a 12-pack of Solo A10 Smoke Detector Tester Cans.

This non-flammable smoke detector tester is HFC (hydrofluorocarbon) and silicone-free, minimizing damage to the ozone layer and the environment. It’s designed for ease of use, rapid clearing, and compatibility with the plastics found in smoke, heat, and carbon monoxide detectors.
