We all want peace of mind when it comes to making sure our home and business are safe. As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of fire safety products, Kidde can give you that peace of mind! Their mission is to provide solutions that protect people and property from the effects of fire and its related hazards. For over 100 years, industry leaders, the military, airlines, firefighters, businesses and millions of homeowners have turned to them to do exactly that.
Walter Kidde was driven not only by entrepreneurial instincts, but also by the never-ending effort to find the solutions to the world’s challenges. After opening his own construction office in 1900, Kidde went on to serve on the New Jersey State Highway Commission, however, his eagerness eventually led him down a different path. Founded in 1917, the company mostly focused on the needs and safety of ships and airplanes. In the early years, Kidde produced the first integrated smoke detection and carbon dioxide extinguishing system for use onboard ships and, along with the US Navy, designed a system to protect airplane engines against fires. From there, the company has grown into an industry leader with an expanded product offering. Kidde also strives to give back to communities through charitable programs and partnerships. They have donated more than 100,000 smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and fire extinguishers to fire departments and non-profit organizations across the country!
Their product line includes smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, fire extinguishers, safety accessories (such as escape ladders) and key security – boxes, cabinets and locks. All these products let home and business owners rest easy knowing they are equipped to prevent or stop fires before major damage is done.
