One of our clients had New Smoke Detectors mounted in high ceiling locations in their building. They needed a design & build of a New Lightweight Extendable Gripper Assembly. The Gripper needed interchangeable heads and an extendable tool that allowed for easy field inspection of the Detector by their maintenance staff. These high level Smoke Detectors needed to be field tested with smoke canisters monthly along with removal for maintenance of backup batteries. The customized Gripper Assembly worked perfectly with the new Detectors allowing easier maintenance.
