“The shrewd sees the danger and conceals himself”
The choice of purchasing certified gas fire suppression system and counterfeit gas fire suppression equipment is a matter of life and death.
You may believe that there is no difference in the product you are receiving and that you are saving money, but it may end up costing you more in the long run.
Most items installed by the fire protection industry are required to adhere to certain guidelines. Even if you have been advised correctly of the product that you need and buy a genuine product from a third party, there is a lot more to meeting fire safety requirements.
Products still need to be commissioned by someone who has been competently trained to do so. They will perform checks to confirm the item is in the correct working condition and make sure that the product is installed in accordance with International Standards. These checks then need to be periodically maintained to ensure the product remains to standard.

Buying cheap fire protection products is a lottery that no one can afford to be playing. Fake products make dangerous situations worse, endangering the user and potentially the attending fire crew too.
All fire protection products need to be rigorously tested and proven to be fit for purpose, reliable and efficient. Cheap products are unlikely to have passed through the recognized approval processes. You cannot be sure the product you are getting will perform in the event of an emergency, unless the product has been brought from a reputable supplier and commissioned by a competent person.
