WE CLAIM:
1. A fire suppression apparatus comprising:
a. a container of a fire suppressant;
b. an actuation head for releasing said fire suppressant from said
container upon activation of said actuation head;
c. a thermal detector including:
A. an energy storage system including:
(1) a movable member movable between a
first position and a second position;
(2) a biasing member for urging said
movable member to said second
position;
B. a thermal sensor including a degradable member
positioned holding said movable member in said
first position against a bias of said biasing member
with said degradable member selected to degrade in
response to an elevated temperature;
d. a transmission member for transmitting to said actuation head an
actuating signal indicating movement of said movable member to
said second position with said actuation head adapted to be activated in response to said signal.

2. An apparatus according to claim 1 wherein said thermal detector is remote from said actuation head and said transmission member includes a
mechanical coupling between said movable member and said actuation head and said actuating signal is a movement of said coupling.

3. An apparatus according to claim 1 wherein said thermal detector is remote from said actuation head and said transmission member includes a control member for creating an electrical signal as said actuating signal.

4. An apparatus according to claim 1 wherein said thermal detector further includes: a. a track for guiding movement of said movable member
between said first and second positions;
b. said biasing member including a spring coupled to said
movable member and a fixed position with said spring
disposed to urge said movable member to said second
position.

5. An apparatus according to claim 4 wherein:
a. said track extends in a path between a fixed member and said
movable member with said first position near said fixed member and said second position further spaced from said fixed member; b. said spring extending in said path between said fixed member and said movable member.

6. An apparatus according to claim 5 further comprising:
a linkage between said fixed member and said movable member and having a displaceable pivot location for accommodating movement of said movable member between said first and second positions;
said thermal sensor connected to said pivot location to prevent displacement of said pivot location prior to degradation of said degradable member.

7. A thermal detector for creating an actuation signal in response to an elevated temperature condition, said thermal detector comprising:
an energy storage system including:
a movable member movable between a first position and a second position;
a biasing member for urging said movable member to said second position;
a thermal sensor including a degradable member positioned holding said movable member in said first position against a bias of said biasing member with said degradable member selected to degrade in response to an elevated temperature.

8. A thermal detector according to claim 7 further comprising:
a track for guiding movement of said movable member between said first and second positions;
said biasing member including a spring coupled to said movable member and a fixed position with said spring disposed to urge said movable member to said second position.

9. A thermal detector according to claim 8 wherein:
said track extends in a path between a fixed member and said movable member with said first position near said fixed member and said second position further spaced from said fixed member;
said spring extending in said path between said fixed member and said movable member.

10. A thermal detector according to claim 9 further comprising;
a linkage between said fixed member and said movable member and having a displaceable pivot location for accommodating movement of said movable member between said first and second positions;
said thermal sensor connected to said pivot location to prevent displacement of said pivot location prior to degradation of said degradable member.
