Press release

31 March 2015


The new Smart+Guard from Vimpex is a tough polycarbonate hinged protective cover that can easily be installed over a range of call points, emergency switches and other devices to provide protection from vandalism, accidental damage or misuse.

Smart+Guard can also be fitted with an integral battery powered alarm that when lifted emits an ear piercing 90dB alarm, warning the user that the device is for emergency use only and should not be tampered with. This alarmed version has a three-year battery life and incorporates a low battery warning LED.

In its red form it is commonly installed over fire alarm break glass call points to protect the break glass from deliberate misuse or accidental damage and this subsequently reduces the incidents of false fire alarms. It is also available in four other colours, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.

Smart design and engineering provides installers and end users with an aesthetically pleasing but tough protective cover that is easy to install and retrofit to existing systems. A break seal can also be fitted to increase the visible deterrence against misuse. Smart+Guard has some unique features that make it more resilient during daily use than some traditional products, such as the fully rotational hinged cover, which provides increased protection against vandalism.

The Smart+Guard Enviro model provides protection for devices exposed to hostile environments. Applications include off-shore, the food and beverage industry, swimming pools and leisure centres, underground installations and any area where exposure to the environment is likely to cause damage to control equipment or switching devices.

Smart+Guard complements Vimpex’s wide range of alarm and evacuation products, which include fire alarm sounders and voice sounders, bells, visual alarm devices, call points, PSU’s, door holders, water leak detection systems, photoluminescent life safety signage and fire alarm accessories.
