Smoke alarms are now fitted to all new houses as stated in building regulations. A smoke alarm will detect smoke and fumes before a dangerous fire develops. By fitting an alarm vital seconds will help to prevent a major fire incident. When a fire is developing, time is the most important factor for treating the cause or evacuating the property. The most common type is battery powered and very easy to install. It incorporates a test button as well as an early warning signal indicating a low battery, by emitting an intermittent alarm.
Before choosing a smoke detector, make sure it carries the British Standard Kite mark and conforms to BS 5446 Part 1.
