The "Home & Cottage Protection Kits" by Mercedes Textiles and introduced in 2001, have been discontinued. However, their concept lives on with a new generation of kit moving forward.
The "Cottage Kits", as they were generally known, proved to be economical, simple and reliable — properties valued by those a bit outside of reliable municipal fire service coverage. Not only were they sources of 'piece-of-mind', but also hard workers for casual irrigation, pressure washing and cleaning of decks, docks and cottage toys. And yes, on a moment's notice, were quick responders to a nearby fire emergency.
For many, these kits were an ideal way to get a simple, easy-to-operate turn-key system for basic fire protection. A true family asset. As an entry level product, it was perfect for the novice or those with limited abilities — suitable for ages 8 to 80. This system was not a toy. The components were of professional quality — the same as used by wildland fire crews.
With its excellent track record, the Cottage Kit will live on in a new incarnation. This next generation kit has all of the features and qualities of the original, but has been reworked for greater value, ease of use and improved performance.
