April 12, 2021 Indianapolis, Indiana – SAAM Inc., announces the company has completed successful independent testing at “Worcester Polytechnic Institute” (WPI) Fire Technology Testing facility.
According to Joe Huehnerhoff, Vice President of Engineering for SAAM, stated, “WPI testing included fast flame, smoldering flame, nuisance alerts, and gas detection testing using the NIST standards for testing.” Huehnerhoff continued, “In each test, the SAAM SP4 exceeded expectations and alerted 4-5X faster than some of the most popular competitive devices, or in the case of false alert testing, did not alert at all.”
Rob Qualls, SAAM CEO added, “We are thrilled with the WPI test results, and in fact are using the results to make improvements to the SP4 technology that will allow the device to alert consumers of a potential catastrophic event long before competing devices, giving individuals that extra lifesaving time to take action.” Qualls said, “Thirty years ago you had an average of 17-minutes to escape a potential catastrophic event, today you have about 3-minutes to escape, so every second counts. SAAM’s proprietary technology is the first new smoke and fire detection technology to be introduced in over 50-years.”
