If positioned correctly, smoke alarms can help you detect the onset of a fire in your home by monitoring for the presence of smoke and sounding an alarm signal if it is detected. There are three common types of Smoke Alarms:
- Optical – Light beam technology that responds well to smouldering fires
- Ionisation – Ionisation technology that responds well to flaming fires
- Combined – Both optical and ionisation technologies
Mains powered alarms should be installed by a qualified electrician.
Smoke alarms must be properly maintained and tested at regular intervals.
Heat Rise Detectors are fire alarms that respond to a change in room temperature. There are two basic kinds, Fixed Temperature and Rate-of-Rise.
Fixed Temperature detectors aim to go off when a room’s temperature crosses a defined threshold. Rate-of-Rise detectors respond to a defined increase in room temperature in a specified period.
Heat Rise Detectors should be used to supplement smoke alarms in areas of your home such as the kitchen where the normal environment might cause a smoke alarms to go off accidentally.
