What Happened to Fenwal Protection Systems?

Fenwal, Chemetron Kidde; United Under One NameNovember 7, 2014, United Technologies (UTC) announced it is merging its three main fire protection system brands; Fenwall Protection Systems, Chemetron Fire Systems, and Kidde Fire Systems, into a single brand under one name, Kidde Fire Systems.


Why did this happen?

UTC is very concerned with providing their customers with the best products and user experience. It quickly became clear having three separate brands within the same organization was not in line with these concerns. Merging the brands will reduce the internal friction of balancing three very similar companies allowing one united business to provide customers with comprehensive and seamless fire protection solutions.

How will this impact me as a current Fenwal customer?
  • Current Fenwalcustomers will only experience minor branding changes (i.e. Fire Panel colors, Logos).

Where do I go for service?
  • ORR Protection Systems will continue to service your fire Protection Systems just as it has in the past.


Does this affect my system warranty?

Can I still get parts and for how long?
·        Since all the parts and pieces are compatible, any new installations, repairs or updates will be completely unaffected by this name change.
