smoke alarm installation

Fire safety legislation in Scotland changed on the 1st February 2019.  

This requires the fitting of interlinked smoke, heat and carbon monoxide alarms throughout a property. 

Many people don’t realise that their smoke alarms are only designed to be effective for 10 years and may not be working anymore. Let us know if you would like us to check if your property meets the latest requirements.

Smoke Alarms – in the main living space, hallway and landing

Heat Alarm – in the kitchen

Smoke and Heat alarms – must be interlinked

Mains powered or 10 year sealed for life battery powered alarms
