Fire Alarm Installers Inverness

From February 1st, 2022, the Scottish Government has implemented new legislation to maximise fire safety measures. The interlinked fire alarm system is compulsory to have within your property. Fire alarm installers Inverness can assist by installing this system into your property.   The new law is a response to the Grenfell Tower tragedy. In 2017, in North Kensington, London, a fire broke out within the high-rise block of flats. This was due to a malfunctioning fridge freezer and resulted in over 70 injuries and 70 fatalities. Although over 200 individuals managed to escape the burning building, accurate and efficient interlinked alarms throughout the building could have increased this number. By introducing the interlinked system, the aim is to reduce future catastrophes like this one.  Contact our team today on 07727 428 660

Fire Alarm Installers Inverness- Installation Details

The team at Titus Fire and Security can install an interlinked alarm system into your home. The following alarms will be placed as followed. One alarm must be placed within the main room of your home. This is most likely to be in a room such as the living room, or even a downstairs home office. Secondly, an alarm must be placed within the circulation areas of the home. The best location for this may be within the hallways or landings of each level of the home. It is important to note that you should have an alarm on each level of the home. Therefore, if your home is three-storey house, you should require an additional alarm.   Alongside the fire alarms, a heat alarm is necessary for your kitchen area. When you consider it, this is the best location for this alarm. With several heat-generating appliances, you want to make sure that your kitchen area is covered.  A member of the Titus Fire and Security team would be more than happy to answer any further questions or concerns regarding the new alarm system installation requirements, call today on 07727 428 660.

Carbon Monoxide Detector

Although not every home will feature a carbon-fuelled appliance, a lot do. If you have appliances such as a boiler or a gas fire, a carbon monoxide detector is a must-have. Not everyone considers the risks and complications of carbon monoxide gas. However, this gas is known as the silent killer as it is tasteless and has no scent. This makes it hard to detect. It is considered just as dangerous as fires for this reason.   Please note, that the carbon monoxide detector will not be linked to the fire alarm.  Types of Alarms  There are two options of alarms to choose from when opting for an interlinked alarm system. These devices can either be mains-wired or sealed battery alarms. The clue is in the name. Although mains-wired alarms may require a more complex installation process, they are argued to be more effective. Sealed battery alarms are easier to install, however, lithium batteries require replacement over the years. Let’s Keep Inverness Safe Inverness is the cultural capital and largest city of the Scottish Highlands. With the city being full of historic homes, hotels, and bed and breakfasts, we would hate to see any of these buildings destroyed by a fire mishap. Therefore, everyone must follow the rules by implementing the new interlinked system into all properties.  For a free no-obligation quote, contact fire alarm installers Inverness on 07727 428 660.
