Smoke Alarm Detector Installation

 

Fire Facts; every year in the UK 800 people die in house fires with over 17,000 injured. You are twice as likely to die in a house fire that has no smoke alarms. Many house fires could have been prevented if the occupants had smoke detectors.

 

Legislation

 

Rented homes built after 1992 should be equipped with a smoke alarm on every level and these should be mains wired so there is no danger of batteries running out unnoticed.  When landlords are successfully prosecuted for not meeting Fire Safety requirements they can face fines, court action or even charges. Many local councils including Merthyr Borough Council insist on an interlinked system GRADE: D, CATEGORY LD3.

 

Grade D means that the alarms are mains powered with backup battery. LD3 means that the alarm is required in the circulation areas that form part of the escape route, usually in the hallway and on the landing. Interlinking allows all alarms to sound when one is activated.

Grade D Category LD3 Smoke detector Alarm system

 

New build, extensions, loft conversions; Building Regulations tell us that the minimum requirement is to follow BS 5839-6 which recommends the use of optical alarms in circulation spaces of a property, such as hallways and landings. The system should again be of GRADE: D, CATEGORY LD3.

 

Please note that these are the minimum requirements for properties up to three storeys and to satisfy British Standards regulations. For enhanced safety and peace of mind you could consider additional alarms such as a heat detector in the kitchen and smoke detectors in other living areas.

 

Alan Davies electrical can survey, supply, install, test and fully certify smoke detector installations to British Standards and local authority requirements.
