Description

This dome shaped or low profile, indoor/outdoor polycarbonate cover protects devices such as dual action pull stations, keypads for entry systems, intercom stations, emergency buttons, electrical light switches, duplex plugs, etc., without restricting legitimate operation. The versatile cover offers excellent protection against physical damage (both accidental and intentional), dust and grime as well as severe environments inside and out (type rating pending).

How It Works

Universal Stopper helps prevent false fire alarms without restricting legitimate alarms. It consists of a clear, tamperproof polycarbonate shield and frame that fits over manual pull stations. When lifted to gain access to the actual alarm, models with alarm will sound a piercing, self-contained, warning horn. Immediate attention is called to the area and a prankster will either run or be caught. The unit is offered in green, blue, yellow, white and black for use in covering an array of devices.

Where It Works

Universal Stopper is ideal for colleges, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, training centers, correctional facilities, hotels/motels, stores, libraries...public buildings of almost every kind where the threat of false fire alarms is great. Stronger than steel pound for pound, it’s almost unbreakable polycarbonate construction makes it suitable for abusive environments such as warehouses and correctional facilities.

How Well It Works

How well it works is evident by its loyal following throughout the security and fire prevention industries...as well as its intense owner loyalty.

Stopper II Accessories & Replacement Parts

These accessories can greatly extend the usefulness of the Stopper II device. Conduit spacers are available in red, green, blue, yellow and clear, a mounting backplate for use on irregular surfaces (recommended for weather applications), weather gaskets, a heater kit for operation in cold weather areas, a conduit gasket, a rigid conduit gasket, a 3/16" allen wrench, and a replacement horn complete with 9 VDC battery.

Also available for the spacer units are grills and louvers to help eliminate fogging inside the Stopper II in outdoor applications. The SUB315 grill (ships with all new Weather Stopper models and is required to meet NEMA 3R criteria) is recommended when a Stopper II cover is installed out-of-doors over a manual pull station or other device containing heat-generating electronics. In most cases, this is all that is needed to solve the problem of fogging.

For areas where condensation and fogging are more severe, the optional SUB316 vented louver kit may also be installed. The louvers are installed in addition to the grill kit to provide additional ventilation and drainage of any collected moisture.
