In Scotland, new rules and regulations have been called to attention in response to the Grenfell Tower tragedy that took place in 2017. This event highlighted the fatal effects of residential fires proving that we must be wary of the possibility of residential fires breaking out within our homes. Fire alarm installers Aberdeen has got you covered.
From the 1st February 2022, the Scottish Government has implemented a new law requiring every property across the country, residential or commercial, to have an interlinked fire alarm system. The new system consists of several alarm systems that will be situated around the home, all interlinked with one another. This means that wherever a fire breaks out in the home, all of the alarm systems will automatically respond. This also benefits anyone within the home as the alarm system can be heard wherever you may be situated within the property.
