ADX - About Us
ADX Fire Protection is a spinoff of the Red Comet manufacturing that started in 1979. The ADX brand automatic fire extinguishers concept is based on the old Red Comet fire grenades. ADX offers a wide variety of automatic fire extinguishers, mounting options and extinguisher classes for modern fire protection needs.
Founded in 1919 in Littleton, Colorado, Red Comet became one of the most influential fire protection companies in the world. With contracts ranging from Saudi Arabia to Indonesia, the company name was standard on top quality fire safety products. The Red Comet, a glass bulb filled with carbon tetrachlorid meant to be thrown at the base of a fire, is one of the earliest documented devices used for fire suppression in homes and businesses. During the Second World War, Red Comet was responsible for providing the US Army and Navy with Fire Extinguishers.
Although Red Comet no longer manufactures the products that made it famous in the early 20th century, it continues to be one the most trusted and popular fire protection product and service providers in the industry. The legacy of the fire grenade inspired its current modern replacement found in the ADX automatic fire extinguishers.
The ADX Fire Protection line was purchased by Getz Fire Equipment (dba Getz Equipment Innovators) in April, 2020. The founder of Getz Fire Equipment, Melvin Getz, was actually a salesman for Red Comet in the 1950's.
