Mains Powered Smoke Alarms
A range of main powered smoke detectors with a battery back up suitable for most domestic installations. Current building standards regulations according to BS 5839-6 advises that new build and materially altered premises should have a Grade D, Category LD2 alarm system with smoke alarms installed in escape routes and high risk areas e.g. hallways, landings and the principal habitable room such as the living room along with heat detectors in every kitchen.
Multi-sensor alarms are generally more suitable for installation in circulation areas (hallways and landings) next to kitchens. Heat alarms are recommended for placing directly in kitchens and in unconverted loft space.
All alarms should be interlinked (either using hard wiring or wireless interlink) to ensure audibility throughout the property in the event of an alarm being activated.
