Most of us have heard a smoke detector going off… usually as a result of bad cooking skills!

While that siren-type noise is very annoying, a smoke alarm is purposefully designed to give early warning to any people in the area that smoke, and possibly a life threatening fire, have been detected.

This early warning gives people as much time as possible to alert others of the threat and to arrange the evacuation of everyone from the fire’s point of origin – and given the average fire can take only seconds to involve a whole room, the more time people have to get out the better.

Installed either as a single stand-alone unit or as part of an interconnected circuit, working smoke alarms have been proven to save lives in the event of a home or office fire.
