Mains Smoke Alarms
As the number of householders installing smoke alarms grows, the emphasis has started to switch to ensuring that they are well maintained. The Fire Kills campaign has concentrated on the importance of regularly testing smoke alarms. Now we need to raise the awareness that smoke alarms need to be replaced every ten years to ensure that they continue to operate successfully.
Replacing battery powered alarms is relatively straight forward – throw the old one away and fit a new one. Replacing mains-powered alarms has hitherto been more complicated and costly since an electrician has had to be called in to carry out the work. But a new system has just been launched that will make the process a lot simpler and cheaper.
Easichange provides householders with a special unit that can be fitted to the existing system. Using the tool provided the old unit can be simply slid off its base and the new one put in its place. No need for specialist help – it’s as easy as changing a light bulb.
The easichange system is applicable to Ei mains-powered smoke and heat alarms which are the most common mains-powered alarms operating in the UK.
Since 1992 building regulations have required that at least one smoke alarm, wired directly to the mains, is installed in every new property. It is believed that many people living in new build houses are relying upon smoke alarms which could be in effect many years overdue for replacement. These properties will be registered as having alarms fitted so will not necessarily be targeted areas for home fire safety checks, meaning that the percentage of homes with working smoke alarms could well be going down.
In shared premises it’s likely there’ll be more than one responsible person. You’ll need to co-ordinate your fire safety plans to make sure people on or around the premises are safe.
For common or shared areas, the responsible person is the landlord, freeholder or managing agent.
So the message has to be that if you’re in any doubt get in contact cause AK Fire are specialist in Domestic and residential fire safety
