Smoke Alarms - Recommended locations and types.

We are often asked where to install a smoke detector. Our first answer is DON'T RELY ON JUST ONE! Install several in different locations around the home to give you the best chance of alarm activation to aid your escape.

There are also different technologies of smoke alarms for sale - Photoelectric and ionization (or even dual purpose). So which one should I buy? Photoelectric detects smaller smouldering fires and is designed to see the fire before it turns into flames.

We recommend, as a minimum, you have photoelectric smoke alarms installed throughout your home as these tend to trigger the alarm a lot quicker than ionization alarms.



Stay safe people!
