In light of the recent laws set in place by the Scottish Government, interlinked fire alarm systems are now a must-have. From the 1st of February 2022, all homes within Scotland must have an interlinked alarm system installed within their property. This is a logical and responsible decision implied by the Scottish Government following the effects of the Grenfell Tower tragedy. Taking place in London in 2017, it was the largest residential fire since World War Two. As a country, we want to ensure that a tragedy to the extent of this one is avoided in the future. Fire Alarm Installers Grangemouth can assist with this.
Fire Alarm Installers Grangemouth Installation Details
The team at Titus Fire and Security can successfully install an interlinked system in the most appropriate areas of your home. The new legislation requires an alarm to be fitted on the ceiling of your most-used room, which tends to be your living room. Alongside this, an alarm must be present in each circulation space. That would be on the ceiling of each storey or landing within the property. Please note that if your home has two levels, you must have an alarm on the ceiling of each level within the hallways or landings. As well as this, a heat alarm must be situated within your kitchen.
Carbon Monoxide Detector
Carbon monoxide alarms are also crucial under these new regulations. Any room that features a carbon-fuelled appliance, such as a boiler or gas fire, must have a carbon monoxide alarm. Although this will not be connected to the interlinked system, it is essential for detecting unseen, yet extremely harmful, carbon monoxide gas. Did you know that carbon monoxide-related deaths number amount to around 60 within the UK each year? As the gas has no taste or scent, you never truly know the harm that can be done from a gas leak. Ensure that you have this device fitted at the same time as your new interlinked system.

Keep the Community Safe
The new regulations proposed by the Scottish Government should not be ignored. Keeping Scotland’s buildings, and its residents safe should be the main priority for all. Avoiding these new laws could consequently result in a negative impact on home reports. In the worst-case scenario, your home insurance policy could become void. Additionally, your health and safety risks against fires, smoke, and carbon monoxide are higher. Therefore, it is not worth the risk.
Keep your friends, family, neighbours, and yourself educated by discussing the new rules and regulations. That will ensure that interlinked systems are accurately installed in all homes across Scotland. Alongside this, conduct occasional testing on your fire alarm. You can do so by carefully lighting a match and holding it directly below the fire alarm. After all, having an interlinked system that does not operate efficiently will not maximise safety measures within your property.
