Fire Safety, Maintenance
The FireAngel battery powered alarms have been designed to be installed quickly and simply, without the services of an electrician. The below will give you an overview of installation but please note that each alarm comes with its own installation manual, so please refer to this before installation.
Which room can I install this heat alarm?
This heat alarm can be installed in kitchens, utility rooms, boiler rooms, attics and garages. If you’re looking for an alarm for living spaces and hallways and landings then check out our range of Smoke Alarms.
How many alarms do I need to install?
The law and recommendation for how many heat alarms are required are specific to the area you live in and your property type.
For the fastest detection of fire we recommend you install a smoke alarm in the circulation space on each level of the home (hallway and landing) as well as in living spaces and bedrooms. We would install these alongside heat alarms in the kitchen, garage and attic and have the alarms interlinked so that if one alarm sounds, they all sound.
Where should I position the heat alarm.
Heat alarms are best suited to areas where dust, fumes and moisture can cause nuisance alarms in smoke alarms and should not be used in escape routes instead of smoke alarms.
When heat alarms are installed in a room, they should be placed on the ceiling, ideally in the centre of the room. They should be at a distance no greater than 5.3m from the farthest wall, no greater than 5.3m from a door to any room in which a fire might start and no greater than 5.3m from the next heat alarm.
NOTE: HEAT ALARMS SHOULD NOT BE WALL MOUNTED.
