Mini Stopper II® with Horn Testimonial

"We were advised by the Fire Brigade that we had generated some 85 nuisance calls in a fairly short time period due to our client group hitting the break glass call points, so we had to find some way of deterring them. We purchased the Stoppers with the built in alarms and since installing them in one particular area only we've had only half a dozen calls. I've got nothing but compliments for the Stopper. It has certainly proved excellent value for money."

Chris Field, Mini Stopper II® with Horn Testimonial
Ticehurst House Hospital

Mini Stopper II® with Horn Testimonial

"We have one school in the area in which the problem of false fire alarms was horrendous. We installed the Stopper thinking then that it perhaps wouldn't overcome the vandal element but we have been really amazed by the results. It has been a huge success — since installing them I don’t think we've had one false alarm."

Mini Stopper II® with Horn Testimonial

"We had experienced a high incidence of students breaking call points and falsely setting off the fire alarms, particularly on Friday and Saturday nights when a little too much drink had been consumed. This inevitably led to false call outs for the fire brigade, which became a real nuisance. Since we installed the Stoppers from STI, we have only had one incident, compared with four or five in the last term prior to installing them."

Sarah Jons, Mini Stopper II® with Horn Testimonial

Mini Stopper II® with Horn Testimonial

"We installed fire alarm systems in all secondary schools under Local Education Authority responsibility as part of a rolling programme – some 30 schools in total. The novelty of break glass call points and children being children meant that false fire alarms were occurring, in one school in particular during exam time which proved especially disruptive. We have now installed Stoppers in all the schools and it generally does appear to have curbed the problem. it’s a good device and we will certainly consider using it again in similar situations."

Paul Hampson, Mini Stopper II® with Horn Testimonial

Mini Stopper II® with Horn Testimonial

"We have specified the Stopper based on the success of the units in the USA reported by National Amusements, owners of Showcase Cinemas, in preventing the malicious use of break glass call points, especially in the unstaffed auditorium. The units are now being installed in a number of cinemas throughout the UK."

Ian Mawditt, 212 Mini Stopper® II with Horn Testimonial
Couch Perry & Wilkes Partnership

Mini Stopper II® with Horn Testimonial

"We had an intermittent problem with pupils activating the break glass call points in our automatic fire systems. Each alarm led to attendance by the local fire brigade but also led to considerable inconvenience, as all of the buildings in the school complex had to be evacuated every time an alarm was given. Since Derbyshire County Council Technical Services Department installed the Stoppers, not a single false fire alarm has been recorded."

Smoke Detector Damage Stopper® Testimonial

"We found your cages via “Google” doing a search for smoke detector guards. Both our applications are for Prison sites in New South Wales where the guard provides protection against possible vandalism to our smoke detectors by the inmates. Previous products have failed or have introduced a means of the inmates inflicting harm. To date, we have not received a feedback to suggest that your STI–8200–SS have succeeded or introduced another hazard. The fact that they have ordered the second lot of 50 would seem promising."

Beam Smoke Damage Stopper®, Exit Stopper® Testimonial

"The Exit Stopper alarms have been installed on our emergency exit doors of our medium sized pharmaceutical production plant in the UAE in Jabel Ali some 20 odd miles outside Dubai. These doors can be opened from inside with just one press and push of the bar handle and the purpose is for easy escape in case of fire or any kind of emergency. In case of an opened door we wanted to know where, to take immediate counter action and to avoid outside contamination entering the plant or corridors. This is mainly to avoid someone from production opening the exit doors unnecessarily. We picked you up as a supplier through the Google search engine “fire alarm doors” and found a good product description with all details and good value for money. Thank you for your efforts. Until today no one has dared to open the door again knowing that a big noise is expected!"

Beam Smoke Damage Stopper® Testimonial

"Thank you for your company’s prompt attention to our order. We found details of your company and the products from a search on the internet.

We have installed the cages and they are effective and combated the vandalism problem we were experiencing, thank you.

We will recommend your company and your products to others in our community and other Scout and Youth Groups."

Paul Cooper, 208 Beam Smoke Damage Stopper® Testimonial

Stopper II® Testimonial

"The treatment centre was having a large number of instances where a patient or visitor was pressing the emergency call bell when attempting to locate the light switch in the visitor's toilets. This was causing the emergency team to be alerted and go into action unnecessarily. This would occur once or twice a week. Since we have installed the Stopper II covers, the instances have stopped. We have had one person who has lifted the cover and pressed the button, (why we do not know) but, it proved that the emergency buttons can be reached and activated easily if required."

Barry Coates, Stopper II® Testimonial
Ramsay Horton Treatment Centre

Thermostat Protector Testimonial

"We came across your products on the internet whilst searching a way of stopping clients staff constantly changing the air conditioning set points.

As an installation and maintenance company looking after air conditioning on behalf of our clients, we have installed many of your Thermostat Covers over new and existing controllers. This has allowed for the cooling/heating mode and the temperature set point to be preset and locked away in the polycarbonate key locked cover so that only authorized personnel and our maintenance staff have access. This results in a far better controlled environment but also allows staff to see the operating set points for the systems.

These controllers certainly help reduce nuisance calls when staff have inadvertently set the operating mode incorrectly."

Les Sweeting, 206 Thermostat Protector Testimonial

Mini Stopper® Testimonial

"We had issues with students activating emergency break glass push buttons for fire exits, emergency door releases and tampering with electrical installations and fire extinguishers. We have now employed different solutions from STI and this has solved these issues. It did take me a long time to find a solution, but finding first of all STI’s American site and then the UK site on Google provided me with all the information needed and identifying the correct product, ordering and delivery was swift, and no problem at all."

ReSet Call Point Testimonial

"Churches Fire Security Ltd. has been installing the STI ReSet Call Point over the last 12 months. We have installed in excess of 500 and have found them to be very easy to install and extremely reliable.

The option of different resistance and dead short terminals, allows our engineers to install these call points to all standard non addressable systems.

Our customers find the call points to be very easy to use; we have also noticed that the sites that have these call points no longer call for help due to test keys jammed or glasses dislodged or broken etc."

Derek Fay, 203 ReSet Call Point Testimonial
Churches Fire Security Ltd.

AED Protective Cabinet Testimonial

"We purchased 30 STI–7535AED wall cabinets to protect Public Access Defibrillators located in Warsaw Airport. What we liked about the product is the quality and smart design. The strobe/alarm facility activates the moment the cabinet is opened drawing immediate attention. Like the autoalarm, this will help prevent accidental and unwanted usage of such an important and possibly dangerous device as a defibrillator."

Rafal Brzyski, 202 AED Protective Cabinet Testimonial
Paramedica Polska Sp. z o.o.

Testimonial

"We have a number of psychiatric patients at the hospital that were continually breaking the glass call points. With the polycarbonate cover we find that they are not quite so able to do so and it has certainly resulted in a reduction in the number of unnecessary breakages."

Portsmouth Healthcare NHS Trust

Fluorescent Lighting Cages Testimonial

"We discovered STI products using the Internet. We needed to guard the fluorescent lights in our Scout Hall to comply with safety regulations and prevent accidental damage. STI’s Light Damage Stoppers were cheaper than products from other manufacturers and they were delivered 'off the shelf' within 48 hours. They were easy to fit and, being coated in a gloss white polyurethane film, we find that they do not restrict the amount of light emitted. Their design also permits simple temporary removal in order to replace tubes and starters."

John Mander, 199 Fluorescent Lighting Cages Testimonial

Stopper II® Testimonial

"I now require this protection for all bar/nightclub or similar assembly occupancies and have virtually eliminated malicious false alarms at these locations. I strongly recommend these products in most new construction where a potential problem exists, such as daycares, schools, children's medical facilities (pediatric clinics and dentist offices), or where accidental activation may occur due to increased activity or work at or near the pull stations. Great products that simply make great sense!"

Stopper II® and Steel Web Stopper® Testimonial

"When something works and does the job, I believe in telling somebody about it. Well, the STI Stopper II works! In fact, we have them over every one of our manual pull stations in every one of our 17 resident halls and in every other building on campus. In fact, we now have over a thousand Stopper IIs protecting us from false fire alarms. I’ve been here at Bryant University for 17 years now and they were here when I arrived. From what I’ve been told, we have been using STI Stopper IIs for more than 25 years. We know a great product when it can take the punishment and still provide the necessary protection. A couple of years ago, our smoke detectors were getting beat up pretty bad. So on the basis of our success with STI Stopper IIs, we started installing STI Steel Web Stoppers over all our smoke detectors. No more problem! Thanks, STI!"

Rex Plus Electronic Watchdog Testimonial

"Actually, we love this area and our Black Bears are a vital part of it. But they really are burglars—constantly in search of any kind of food wherever they can find it. And often, that's in the kitchens of homes and cabins. It was a severe problem and we tried just about everything to solve it—pest control products, Pine Sol, chemicals of one kind or another, motion activated alarms and so on. Nothing seemed to work. Then someone mentioned electronic barking dog alarms.

People depend on our advice so we tested all of them—eight different kinds from eight different companies. Based upon their effectiveness, dependability, price and other factors the clear cut winner turned out to be STI’s Rex Plus Electronic Watchdog.

We ordered cases and cases of them. The word went out. And people lined up to buy them.

Bottom line: Rex works. It has indeed helped solve our problem with bears breaking into residences for food and the resulting destruction. Bears no longer are creating havoc in their quest for something to eat before going into hibernation.

As far as the bear is concerned, he or she is totally convinced the home that is protected by Rex is guarded by a large, vicious and very angry German Shepherd. It helps too that the closer the bear gets, the louder and angrier Rex becomes. The bear wants no part of that and quickly trots off.

We think Rex is great! In fact, we have already placed an order for a whole new shipment of them."

Smoke Detector Damage Stopper® Testimonial

"I have suggested the use of STI Smoke Detector Protectors in our area. They aid in deterring vandals from breaking them. I would like to thank you, STI, for the things you are doing to keep us and the community safe."

Stopper II® Testimonial

"Airport terminals are a prime target for false fire alarms with little kids running around looking for something to do. But since we recommended the installation of STI Stopper II covers over our manual pull stations, false fire alarms have ceased to be a problem."

Robert Lindstrom, Stopper II® Testimonial
Will Rogers Airport Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"You really can’t blame the kids. At our local elementary school the light switch on the wall was so close to the manual pull station that the students would activate the alarm by mistake. Previously, I had recommended a number of STI Stopper II units to solve a false fire alarm problem in another part of town and they cut the number of false fire alarms there from six a year to zero. So I suggested installing a Stopper II for the problem at the school and it worked great."

Erik Eriksen, Stopper II® Testimonial
Ripton Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"In my previous post in a much larger urban community I frequently recommended the use of STI Stopper II devices over manual pull stations to stop false fire alarms in high schools and a lot of other public buildings. They were very effective. During the next few months I’m going to evaluate whether they are also needed here."

Richard Silvia, Stopper II® Testimonial
Saddle River Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"We had a severe problem with the inmates pulling false fire alarms when I was Fire Safety Officer at the County Corrections Center. I suggested we install STI Stopper II covers over the manual pull stations and that solved the problem. Fortunately, I don’t have that kind of problem in my present post."

Tony Boyd, Stopper II® Testimonial

Stopper II® Testimonial

"False fire alarms were a real problem in shopping malls and nursing homes until we started recommending they install STI Stopper II covers over their manual pull stations. They’re working terrific! In fact, I keep information on them handy to pass along whenever we have a problem in our area."

James Kicza, Stopper II® Testimonial
Hadley Fire Department

"At my old fire department, I suggested the use of STI Stopper II covers over manual pull stations to prevent false fire alarms at the courthouse and they did the job. You make a good product, STI!"

Stephen Mason, Stopper II® Testimonial
Mount Pulaski Phoenix Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"A large nursing home in our area was having quite a problem in two of their buildings with elderly handicapped residents activating manual pull stations. I recommended installing STI Stopper II covers. Then, when the residents tried it again, staff members were able to stop residents from pulling the real alarm—preventing another false fire alarm. What would I say about the STI Stopper IIs? THEY WORK!"

Bob Kepka, Stopper II® Testimonial
Ellsworth Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"I have recommended the installation of STI Stopper II covers over manual pull stations to prevent false fire alarms in remote areas of schools in our area as well as in restaurants. An even bigger problem has been in school gyms where we recommended installing them to protect devices from flying basketballs. The STI Stopper IIs have proved to be very effective!"

Steve P. Edwards, Stopper II® Testimonial
Orleans Fire/Rescue Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"We call STI Stopper II devices with a pre–alarm SCREAMERS. And we instructed the local school system to install them in all problem areas such as basketball gyms or elsewhere where there were false fire alarms caused by malicious activation of manual pull stations. We haven’t had any false alarms there since."

Bryan Sammartino, Stopper II® Testimonial
Ridgefield Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"It happened a couple of years ago. This local restaurant was having a problem with false fire alarms from a manual pull station located next to the front door of the waiting room. Kids being held by their mothers couldn't resist pulling that alarm. We recommended they install an STI Stopper II and that was it. No more false fire alarms."

Cynthia Maahs Knobbs, Stopper II® Testimonial

Stopper II® Testimonial

"We protect a major state–owned hospital and we recommend STI products to alarm system vendors working at our facility of 50 buildings. That includes STI Stopper II covers for our manual pull stations, STI Wire Guards for smoke detectors, protectors for our fire extinguishers and a lot more of them. In fact, we give all our fire protection vendors copies of your catalog."

Joseph Muzzillo, Stopper II® Testimonial
Greystone Park Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"When I was a fire chief for the Department of Defense up here in Alaska, I required the use of STI Stopper II covers over our manual pull stations to prevent false fire alarms and vandalism. Most of it was the work of young pranksters in the barracks and other similar military facilities. I’m retired now as a DoD fire chief but I know what Stopper IIs can do. These days I’m still serving as a fire chief in the land of the midnight sun and the best fishing in the world."

Fred Swen, Stopper II® Testimonial
Nikiski Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"STI Stopper II covers worked out well for us in two areas. First, in high school gyms to protect manual pull stations from being hit by basketballs. Second, in pre–school facilities where there were problems with false fire alarms. Kids being carried by their mothers would activate the manual pull stations as they walked down the halls."

John Vail, Stopper II® Testimonial
Evendale Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"People didn’t know that the manual pull station outside the entrance to the emergency room at a local hospital was not the automatic door opener. So they would pull it and we’d have a false fire alarm. I recommended they install an STI Stopper II cover over the manual pull station. They did and we've had no trouble with it since."

Dail Fritsch, Stopper II® Testimonial
Montpelier Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"We have allowed the use of STI Stopper II units in a couple of high schools in our district and they have significantly reduced the number of false fire alarms. Each teacher and custodian was required to be trained in their use and sign a document to that effect."

Exit Stopper® Testimonial

"There was a problem with unauthorized people going in and out of back doors at a church day care facility in our area. I recommended they install the STI Exit Stopper. That must have solved it because I haven’t heard anything since."

Jeff Fincke, 178 Exit Stopper® Testimonial
Kendall County Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"I recommended the use of the STI Stopper II in both an elementary school and in a local community center. In both cases it was kids activating manual pull stations as a prank. Stopper II solved the problem in both places. Stopper II is great because it does two things. First it protects the manual pull station from accidental damage and so forth. Second, the pre–alarm prevents kids and anybody else from pulling false fire alarms and getting away with it."

Aaron Markham, Stopper II® Testimonial

Stopper II® Testimonial

"The STI Stopper II is a good deterrent to false fire alarms and I suggest it often. In fact, I’m meeting this week with the owners of a very large nursing home now under construction to talk about installing them throughout the structure. I know they have used them in their other nursing homes outside my area. And I’m going to talk to our local schools about installing STI Stopper II covers over their manual pull stations. Thanks for this product, STI. It works!"

Brian Hughes, Stopper II® Testimonial

Stopper II® Testimonial

"I’ve recommended the installation of STI Stopper II covers over manual pull stations at schools and a local facility where they hold children’s birthday parties and so on. Have they been successful? Well, we haven’t been back!"

Jim Auclaire, Stopper II® Testimonial
Jerome City Fire Rescue

Stopper II® Testimonial

"When we receive a pull station false alarm we have our Fire Inspectors follow up and write orders to install the protective cover with sounder. Most of our schools, daycare centers, and assembly occupants have installed the STI Stopper II just about anywhere there are kids in the area. We have extremely lowered pull station false fire alarms, the only ones we seem to have now are the ones without the covers. These protective covers sure seem to help in our community."

Chuck Schaitberger, Stopper II® Testimonial
Eden Prairie Fire Dept.

Stopper II® Testimonial

"We were having problems with false fire alarms coming from manual pull stations in our high school and a local church where they play sports. At first, we thought it was caused by balls hitting the pull stations. But then we noticed the false fire alarms seemed to be timed to when classes were letting out. Conclusion: Those false fire alarms weren’t all accidental. We recommended installing about seven STI Stopper II units and that took care of both problems. The STI Stopper IIs work great!"

Ron Browning, Stopper II® Testimonial
Chippewa Township Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"You know how it is with some college kids, false fire alarms are not that unusual. We were experiencing a lot of that at our local college. Then we recommended installing STI Stopper II covers over some of the problem manual pull stations. That has made a big difference! Malicious false fire alarms have gone way down thanks to the STI Stopper Iine."

Brent Gates, Stopper II® Testimonial
New Concord Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"This is a ski resort area and false fire alarms used to be a problem because kids in the parents’ arms would pull alarms in passing or skis would hit manual pull stations accidentally and we’d have this same thing happen. The simple solution was having STI Stopper II covers installed. They have been 100% effective!"

Jay Nelson, Stopper II® Testimonial
Red, White & Blue Fire Protection District

Stopper II® Testimonial

"Yes, there was a problem with malicious activation of manual pull stations in our jurisdiction until they installed an STI Stopper II cover. That took care of it. Stopper II is a great product! In fact, whenever we have a false fire alarm problem or other protection issues, I provide information on your products."

William Vack, Stopper II® Testimonial
Flat Rock Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"We had a big problem with false fire alarms about five years ago but not anymore—since all our manual pull stations in the entire airport complex have been fitted with STI Stopper IIs. In fact, because we're constantly expanding the airport, the terminal operator carries them in stock for us. We don’t want manual pull stations ever installed without a Stopper II protecting it."

John Shanley, Stopper II® Testimonial
Orlando Sanford Int'l Airport

Stopper II® Testimonial

"I’ve suggested the use of STI products lots of times—especially STI Stopper II covers for manual pull stations to prevent false fire alarms and STI devices to stop theft or vandalism of both cabinet mounted and free standing fire extinguishers. In fact, I’m approving Stopper IIs right now for our baseball field at our university stadium facility and for some of our fraternity houses. They do the job in stopping false fire alarms."

Donald A. Brewer, Stopper II® Testimonial

Richard Wadleigh, Stopper II® Testimonial
Rowan University Dept of Public Safety

Stopper II® Testimonial

"There was a problem with false fire alarms in a building housing pre–schoolers and kids in the lower elementary grades. They would pull the alarms on manual pull stations—not really knowing what they were doing. I recommended the use of STI Stopper II devices. School officials followed my advice and there hasn't been one false fire alarm there since."

John LeRoy, Stopper II® Testimonial
Oxford Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"Repeated fines and corrective action resulting from false fire alarms in remote locations at our local high school were causing increasing concern for school officials. I recommend they install STI Stopper II units over their manual pull stations and they agreed. The Stopper IIs have been very successful in solving the problem because false fire alarms have been greatly reduced."

Michael Cato, Stopper II® Testimonial
Estero Fire & Rescue

Stopper II® Testimonial

"It might sound strange, but we have had a number of cases where confused people mistake manual pull stations located near front entrances as door opening devices or—in some instances—as ‘door bells.’ It’s not malicious but it does result in a false fire alarm nevertheless. We recommended installing STI Stopper II devices over those manual pull stations and those kinds of problems ceased immediately. Also, we have suggested their use in a number of municipally owned buildings where there were false fire alarms and the results have been equally successful."

Stopper II® Testimonial

"We recommend—almost command—the installation of STI Stopper II devices wherever there are manual pull stations and the potential is there for false fire alarms. They have done more than cut down on them in almost all cases—false fire alarms have gone down to zero Stopper II is a great product! Hospitals have been our biggest problem area in the past with schools second. But not now with the Stopper II. An awful lot of manual pull stations are located next to stairs and entrances where it’s so easy to pull the alarm in a crowd and the culprit is out the door before anybody knows who did it. A Stopper II cover over the manual pull station gives them pause and it just doesn't happen any more."

Joe Messmer, Stopper II® Testimonial
Edgewood Fire/EMS

Stopper II® Testimonial

"An unattended gasoline service station was having problems with juveniles activating manual pull stations. We suggested installing four STI Stopper II covers—one at each pull station at both ends of the two islands. They have worked great! It’s a very good product."

Timothy J. Tener, Stopper II® Testimonial

Stopper II® Testimonial

"I’ve recommended to all school custodians in our area that they install STI Stopper II units to help stop false fire alarms, and they have been effective. That includes putting them over manual pull stations in gyms to stop activation from being hit by basketballs and so on."

Stopper II® Testimonial

"One little guy in a special needs classroom figured out that if he pulled the alarm of a nearby manual pull station, he’d get a reaction in a hurry. On our suggestion, they installed an STI Stopper II cover. Then when he tried doing it again, immediate attention was drawn to the area and the teacher took care of it. The problem was solved."

Stopper II® Testimonial

"These big backpacks kids carry these days were the source of the problem. Walking down the halls and turning around caused them to activate manual pull stations at our local high school. I recommended installing STI Stopper II covers and that solved the problem."

Swampscott Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"A local shopping mall was having a severe problem with false fire alarms so I recommended the use of STI Stopper II devices. They followed my recommendation and the Stopper II units have worked out great. I've also suggested their use in our schools and at the library."

Colonial Heights Fire Department & EMS

Stopper II® Testimonial

"A large three–story nursing home was having quite a problem with some of their 240 patients causing false fire alarms by activating manual pull stations. After I recommended using STI Stopper II covers, they had 21 of them installed. No more false fire alarms! I also suggested them for several large stores, including at a hardware store in a nearby town. They were equally successful in stopping false fire alarms at each of these facilities."

Alan Silverman, Stopper II® Testimonial

Stopper II® Testimonial

"Before I became fire chief, I was a fire inspector for 20 years. During that time I saw many incidents of false fire alarms caused by kids activating manual pull stations, like at grocery stores and many other places. I found that STI Stopper II devices did a good job in reducing or eliminating them. So we continue to recommend them in our area."

Jim Davis, Stopper II® Testimonial
Lincoln City Fire Department

Stopper II® Testimonial

"There was a problem with a basketball league using the gym at a private school on weekends. A few kids pulled false fire alarms at a manual pull station. School officials said they wanted no more of it, so I recommended the use of the STI Stopper II. It solved the problem just like that and we received no more calls on it."

The units are now being installed in a number of cinemas throughout the UK."

Mini Stopper II® with Spacer Testimonial

"We had an intermittent problem with pupils activating the break glass call points in our automatic fire systems. Each alarm led to attendance by the local fire brigade but also led to considerable inconvenience, as all of the buildings in the school complex had to be evacuated every time an alarm was given. Since Derbyshire County Council Technical Services Department installed the Stoppers, not a single false fire alarm has been recorded."

Upon our recommendation, they have now been installed in local schools, long–term health care facilities and high–rise residential complexes.

Widebody Keypad Protector, Stopper II®, Thermostat Protector Testimonial

"As I travel around on inspections, I recommend the use of STI protectors wherever there are kids around. We recently had a $2,500,000 renovation of an municipal administration building and I had them install an STI Widebody Keypad Protector because the kids thought it was some kind of miniature computer. Also, because there’s a library close by I had them install STI Stopper II units to stop malicious activation of manual pull stations. And I had them install an STI Thermostat Protector to prevent tampering with the thermostat by adults as well as kids. As a matter of fact, I carry information on STI protectors with me to tell people how they can solve different problems they might have."

By nature the equipment is sited adjacent to doorways and regrettably some of our visitors felt that it was free and available to them to take the extinguishers away. Having fitted the Extinguisher Theft Stoppers we no longer have equipment being stolen over holidays, weekends and nights. Anybody wanting to protect extinguishers will certainly find value for money by using the Extinguisher Stopper."

We tried a buzzer system but it was a chore to install and people would disconnect the wires to the door switches. Then I saw your Exit Stopper in a catalog and we gave it a try. It’s a lot easier to install and it makes people check it out. We have since purchased 62 of them. Of course, we still have people that go out/in these doors but this is now a problem that Unit Managers can deal with."

Our customers find the call points to be very easy to use; we have also noticed that the sites that have these call points no longer call for help due to test keys jammed or glasses dislodged or broken etc."

Rex Plus Electronic Watchdog Testimonial

"Actually, we love this area and our Black Bears are a vital part of it. But they really are burglars—constantly in search of any kind of food wherever they can find it. And often, that's in the kitchens of homes and cabins. It was a severe problem and we tried just about everything to solve it—pest control products, Pine Sol, chemicals of one kind or another, motion activated alarms and so on. Nothing seemed to work. Then someone mentioned electronic barking dog alarms.

People depend on our advice so we tested all of them—eight different kinds from eight different companies. Based upon their effectiveness, dependability, price and other factors the clear cut winner turned out to be STI’s Rex Plus Electronic Watchdog.

We ordered cases and cases of them. The word went out. And people lined up to buy them.

Bottom line: Rex works. It has indeed helped solve our problem with bears breaking into residences for food and the resulting destruction. Bears no longer are creating havoc in their quest for something to eat before going into hibernation.

As far as the bear is concerned, he or she is totally convinced the home that is protected by Rex is guarded by a large, vicious and very angry German Shepherd. It helps too that the closer the bear gets, the louder and angrier Rex becomes. The bear wants no part of that and quickly trots off.

We think Rex is great! In fact, we have already placed an order for a whole new shipment of them."

Exit Stopper® Testimonial

"There was a problem with unauthorized people going in and out of back doors at a church day care facility in our area. I recommended they install the STI Exit Stopper. That must have solved it because I haven’t heard anything since."

Kendall County Fire Department

Exit Stopper® Testimonial

"The residents at the home were continuously leaving the emergency exits doors open, which became a safety and security risk to the residents and staff. After sorting advice on how to tackle the problem, the local fire officer recommended the Exit Stopper.

Since they were installed, it has proved very successful deterring the residents from misusing the Emergency Exits. It has also given the staff piece of mind especially during the night shift."

Exit Stopper® Testimonial

"Being a state institute medical hospital, all our doors in the client living areas had to be installed with panic bars. So we had to install an alarm system and it had to get people’s attention. We tried a buzzer system but it was a chore to install and people would disconnect the wires to the door switches. Then I saw your Exit Stopper in a catalog and we gave it a try. It’s a lot easier to install and it makes people check it out. We have since purchased 62 of them. Of course, we still have people that go out/in these doors but this is now a problem that Unit Managers can deal with."

Fire Extinguisher Theft Stopper® Testimonial

"We have been very satisfied with STI’s products in particular the Extinguisher Theft Stopper, which has reduced the loss of equipment to a satisfying zero on our site at The Luton and Dunstable Hospital. By nature the equipment is sited adjacent to doorways and regrettably some of our visitors felt that it was free and available to them to take the extinguishers away. Having fitted the Extinguisher Theft Stoppers we no longer have equipment being stolen over holidays, weekends and nights. Anybody wanting to protect extinguishers will certainly find value for money by using the Extinguisher Stopper."

Fluorescent Lighting Cages Testimonial

"We discovered STI products using the Internet. We needed to guard the fluorescent lights in our Scout Hall to comply with safety regulations and prevent accidental damage. STI’s Light Damage Stoppers were cheaper than products from other manufacturers and they were delivered 'off the shelf' within 48 hours. They were easy to fit and, being coated in a gloss white polyurethane film, we find that they do not restrict the amount of light emitted. Their design also permits simple temporary removal in order to replace tubes and starters."

Beam Smoke Damage Stopper®, Exit Stopper® Testimonial

"The Exit Stopper alarms have been installed on our emergency exit doors of our medium sized pharmaceutical production plant in the UAE in Jabel Ali some 20 odd miles outside Dubai.

These doors can be opened from inside with just one press and push of the bar handle and the purpose is for easy escape in case of fire or any kind of emergency.

In case of an opened door we wanted to know where, to take immediate counter action and to avoid outside contamination entering the plant or corridors. This is mainly to avoid someone from production opening the exit doors unnecessarily.

We picked you up as a supplier through the Google search engine “fire alarm doors” and found a good product description with all details and good value for money.

Thank you for your efforts. Until today no one has dared to open the door again knowing that a “big noise” is expected!!"

"We purchased 30 STI–7535AED wall cabinets to protect Public Access Defibrillators located in Warsaw Airport. What we liked about the product is the quality and smart design. The strobe/alarm facility activates the moment the cabinet is opened drawing immediate attention. Like the autoalarm, this will help prevent accidental and unwanted usage of such an important and possibly dangerous device as a defibrillator."

Thermostat Protector Testimonial

"We came across your products on the internet whilst searching a way of stopping clients staff constantly changing the air conditioning set points.

As an installation and maintenance company looking after air conditioning on behalf of our clients, we have installed many of your Thermostat Covers over new and existing controllers. This has allowed for the cooling/heating mode and the temperature set point to be preset and locked away in the polycarbonate key locked cover so that only authorized personnel and our maintenance staff have access. This results in a far better controlled environment but also allows staff to see the operating set points for the systems.

These controllers certainly help reduce nuisance calls when staff have inadvertently set the operating mode incorrectly."

Stopper II® Testimonial

"The treatment centre was having a large number of instances where a patient or visitor was pressing the emergency call bell when attempting to locate the light switch in the visitor's toilets. This was causing the emergency team to be alerted and go into action unnecessarily. This would occur once or twice a week. Since we have installed the Stopper II covers, the instances have stopped. We have had one person who has lifted the cover and pressed the button, (why we do not know) but, it proved that the emergency buttons can be reached and activated easily if required."

"I now require this protection for all bar/nightclub or similar assembly occupancies and have virtually eliminated malicious false alarms at these locations. I strongly recommend these products in most new construction where a potential problem exists, such as daycares, schools, children's medical facilities (pediatric clinics and dentist offices), or where accidental activation may occur due to increased activity or work at or near the pull stations. Great products that simply make great sense!"

"When something works and does the job, I believe in telling somebody about it. Well, the STI Stopper II works! In fact, we have them over every one of our manual pull stations in every one of our 17 resident halls and in every other building on campus. In fact, we now have over a thousand Stopper IIs protecting us from false fire alarms. I’ve been here at Bryant University for 17 years now and they were here when I arrived. From what I’ve been told, we have been using STI Stopper IIs for more than 25 years. We know a great product when it can take the punishment and still provide the necessary protection. A couple of years ago, our smoke detectors were getting beat up pretty bad. So on the basis of our success with STI Stopper IIs, we started installing STI Steel Web Stoppers over all our smoke detectors. No more problem! Thanks, STI!"

Stopper II® Testimonial

"You really can’t blame the kids. At our local elementary school the light switch on the wall was so close to the manual pull station that the students would activate the alarm by mistake. Previously, I had recommended a number of STI Stopper II units to solve a false fire alarm problem in another part of town and they cut the number of false fire alarms there from six a year to zero. So I suggested installing a Stopper II for the problem at the school and it worked great."

"When I was a fire chief for the Department of Defense up here in Alaska, I required the use of STI Stopper II covers over our manual pull stations to prevent false fire alarms and vandalism. Most of it was the work of young pranksters in the barracks and other similar military facilities. I’m retired now as a DoD fire chief but I know what Stopper IIs can do.

"STI Stopper II covers worked out well for us in two areas. First, in high school gyms to protect manual pull stations from being hit by basketballs.

"People didn’t know that the manual pull station outside the entrance to the emergency room at a local hospital was not the automatic door opener.

"I recommended the use of the STI Stopper II in both an elementary school and in a local community center. In both cases it was kids activating manual pull stations as a prank.

Second, the pre–alarm prevents kids and anybody else from pulling false fire alarms and getting away with it."

"When we receive a pull station false alarm we have our Fire Inspectors follow up and write orders to install the protective cover with sounder. Most of our schools, daycare centers, and assembly occupants have installed the STI Stopper II just about anywhere there are kids in the area. We have extremely lowered pull station false fire alarms, the only ones we seem to have now are the ones without the covers. These protective covers sure seem to help in our community."

Stopper II® Testimonial

"We were having problems with false fire alarms coming from manual pull stations in our high school and a local church where they play sports. At first, we thought it was caused by balls hitting the pull stations. But then we noticed the false fire alarms seemed to be timed to when classes were letting out. Conclusion: Those false fire alarms weren’t all accidental. We recommended installing about seven STI Stopper II units and that took care of both problems. The STI Stopper IIs work great!"

Ron Browning, Stopper II® Testimonial

"It might sound strange, but we have had a number of cases where confused people mistake manual pull stations located near front entrances as door opening devices or—in some instances—as ‘door bells.’ It’s not malicious but it does result in a false fire alarm nevertheless. We recommended installing STI Stopper II devices over those manual pull stations and those kinds of problems ceased immediately. Also, we have suggested their use in a number of municipally owned buildings where there were false fire alarms and the results have been equally successful."

"We recommend—almost command—the installation of STI Stopper II devices wherever there are manual pull stations and the potential is there for false fire alarms. They have done more than cut down on them in almost all cases—false fire alarms have gone down to zero Stopper II is a great product! Hospitals have been our biggest problem area in the past with schools second. But not now with the Stopper II. An awful lot of manual pull stations are located next to stairs and entrances where it’s so easy to pull the alarm in a crowd and the culprit is out the door before anybody knows who did it. A Stopper II cover over the manual pull station gives them pause and it just doesn't happen any more."

We recently had a $2,500,000 renovation of an municipal administration building and I had them install an STI Widebody Keypad Protector because the kids thought it was some kind of miniature computer. Also, because there’s a library close by I had them install STI Stopper II units to stop malicious activation of manual pull stations. And I had them install an STI Thermostat Protector to prevent tampering with the thermostat by adults as well as kids. As a matter of fact, I carry information on STI protectors with me to tell people how they can solve different problems they might have."
