Smoke detectors

Smoke alarms are legally required in all new buildings in the UK; they should carry the British Standard kite mark that ensures the alarm's sensitivity to smoke. Smoke alarms are now available through many retail outlets, the alarms included in this section are those with useful features for users with a disability. People who are deaf or hard of hearing may need a visual or vibrating alarm. These alarms may be carried by the users or placed underneath their pillow at night. Alarms should be tested at least once a month. A torch test facility is an option for people who cannot access the alarm. Mains powered alarms are slightly more expensive but do eliminate the need for battery replacement. Mains powered alarms should be installed by a qualified electrician. Smoke detectors can also be part of a telecare system, refer to the Telecare section for further details.
