Not every building requires a fire alarm system with central panel and detector heads linked to it. Newly built homes and extensions, HMOs, Bed and Breakfasts, let properties and small businesses will usually only require smoke alarms in accordance to BS 5839 part 6 Grade D which requires mains powered and interlinked smoke alarms. The interlink can either be through cable or with radio-interlink. The requirement for mains power can often me overcome by installing 10 year sealed radio-interlinked smoke alarms, this reduces the amount of cabling and time traditionally needed to install.
Buying a smoke alarm could help save your home, and the lives of you and your family.
Every year the Fire and Rescue Service is called yo over 600,00 fires which result in over 800 deaths and over 17,000 injuries.
About 50,000 (140 a day) of these are in the home and kill nearly 500 and injure over 11,000, many which could have been prevented if people had an early warning and were able to get out in time. In fact, you are twice as likely to die in a house fire that has no smoke alarm than a house that does. Resource taken from: www.fireservice.co.uk
