Smoke & heat alarms

Smoke alarms simply alert you to the danger of fire; you're twice as likely to die in a fire at home if you don't have at least one.

For best protection, you should install one of each type of smoke alarm, on every level of your home.

There are two types of smoke alarm:

Ionisation alarms, which detect flaming fires before the smoke gets too thick and Optical alarms which are more effective for detecting slow-burning, smouldering fires.

Optical alarms are less likely to go off accidentally and so are best for ground-floor hallways and homes on one level.

Where to place your alarm

Below details the recommended positioning for your smoke alarms. Don't forget; building regulations state that properties with loft conversions and/or extensions should be fitted with hardwired 230V AC smoke alarms.
