What to do if you are Impacted by the Honeywell Systems BG-10 Pull Station Recall
Honeywell issued a recall earlier this year regarding a very popular pull station (BG-10 Series) that was manufactured and extensively privately labeled. The recall involves pull stations that were manufactured starting in 1992 and distributed through 2010. The problem appears to be that the O-ring, or seal, associated with the plunger-type switch either stiffens or otherwise degrades over time, which ultimately prevents the switch from signaling an alarm when the pull station is activated.
The majority of these pull stations were manufactured between 1992 and 2000. They were distributed under multiple brands including ADT, Fire-Lite Alarms, Johnson Control Inc., and NOTIFIER. The images below show this device with slight brand variations.
Honeywell highly recommends that BG-10 series pull stations be replaced as soon as possible, but they are also offering a new, free of charge factory provided alarm switch seal to those that cannot replace the units in their facilities at this time.
