Senco Sensors Inc. Residential Carbon Monoxide Detector Certified by Underwriters Laboratories Canada.

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 9, 1998--Senco Sensors Inc. (VSE:SSZ.)

OFFICIAL PRODUCT LAUNCH NOW UNDERWAY

Mr. Nasim Tyab, President and CEO of Senco Sensors Inc. (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company's Model ONE carbon monoxide (CO) detector has been certified by Underwriters Laboratories of Canada (ULC), under CAN/CGA 6.19, the national standard for detectors in Canada.

"This is a significant milestone in the commercialization of our detectors" says Tyab. "Having received this all-important safety certification from ULC, we can now proceed to aggressively market our advanced CO detectors to major retailers and leading suppliers of life safety products nationwide."

"By utilizing proprietary electrochemical sensor technology, our CO detectors offer a number of advanced features, including the ability to monitor and alert homeowners to the presence of prolonged low-levels of CO, which we believe is an industry first."

Current medical research indicates that exposure to even relatively low levels of CO, (35 parts per million) over an extended period of time may contribute to significant health problems, especially among infants and the elderly.

"The technological limitations of widely-marketed CO detectors currently in use have resulted in performance issues including false alarms and raised questions concerning the overall reliability of these products," adds Tyab.

"The Company's new Model ONE carbon monoxide detector was designed to address these issues, providing homeowners with an added measure of reliability."

The official product launch is taking place this week in Toronto at the Canadian Hardware and Home Improvement Show, February 8th- 10th, 1998.

The Company's CO detector offers the reliability and accuracy of higher-cost industrial units, but will retail at a price that is competitive in the consumer residential market. The product features a six-year limited warranty versus the industry standard of two to five years.

According to the Canada Safety Council, some 200 people are killed each year in Canada by CO poisoning, with approximately 1,500 others suffering serious injuries. Senco Sensors Inc. is dedicated to becoming a major manufacturer and marketer of residential CO detectors and other hazardous gas detectors.
