When fixing your alarm to the baseplate, it’s important to turn it as far as possible to ensure it is engaged and secure. If the ‘lugs’ at the rear of the alarm can be seen, then the alarm will be secure and can be installed. However, if you’re unable to turn the baseplate enough for these to be seen then we can offer an alternative baseplate.

Yes – Heat Alarms won’t false alarm to dusty or humid rooms which makes them perfect for kitchens, utility rooms and garages.

Yes – heat alarms and smoke alarms detect fire in very different ways. Smoke alarms, as the name suggests, alert you to fires by detecting smoke, so if there’s a slow smouldering fire (which usually doesn’t give off a lot of heat) it could be missed for some time if a you only have a heat alarm installed. We would recommend you review the regulations specific to your area, but as a guide we recommend that homes have a smoke alarm in the hallway, landing and in the room most used in the daytime, alongside a heat alarm in the kitchen.
