OnGard is a unique fire protection device specifically designed to protect against lint fires in dryers. OnGard is universal and can be easily installed in any dryer.
While there are some third-party solutions available to notify of lint buildup in vents, they can be easily ignored by users with the "fix it later" mentality and completely useless once a fire has broken out. With OnGard, dryer fire can be a minor inconvenience instead of a life-changing event.
How it Works
- The unit is mounted to the wall near the dryer and the tubing is fed through an existing opening in the back of the dryer.
- In the event of a fire, the flame causes the heat detection tubing to rupture, immediately releasing the patent-pending HEP-1 agent.
- The HEP-1 is able to penetrate every area of the enclosed space better than existing dry chemical suppression agents and even flow up the duct to follow the flames.
