Mains wired smoke alarms Edinburgh

Mains interlinked smoke alarms in Edinburgh.

The Scottish Goverment has produced revised statutory guidance on the requirements for smoke alarms. Below we have detailed the main points relating to smoke detectors from the revised Domestic Technical Handbook.

1) One functioning smoke alarm in the* room which is frequently used by the occupants for general daytime living purposes

2) One functioning smoke alarm in every circulation space, such as hallways and landings

3) One heat alarm in every kitchen

4) All alarms should be interlinked

5) The number and position of alarms will depend on the size and layout of the house, but there should be at least one alarm on each floor

6) The landlord should either install smoke and fire alarms that meet the standard set by building regulations or be able to justify why a lesser level of protection is appropiate in a particular property

7) Some properties may be required to meet more stringent standards, in which case further alarms may be needed

8) An alarm should be installed in accordance with the recommendations contained in BS5839 Part 6 and the landlord should ensure the alarms are regularly maintained in accordance with manfacturer’s recommendations. The fitting of a hard-wired smoke alarm may require a building warrant and the relevant local authorities should be consulted.
