About this deal

Fire blankets are used to put out a fire or wrap a person whose clothes are on fire. They are best kept in the kitchen.

Heat Alarms: They detect the increase in temperature from a fire and are insensitive to smoke. They can therefore be installed in kitchens. They only cover a relatively small area of a room, so potentially several heat alarms need to be installed in a large kitchen.So if you’re out of your home and not near your phone when the messages come through, you’ll have no way of knowing the alarm was sounding. When disaster strikes in the middle of the night, they are there to alert you with plenty of time to get your family out. However, they can only do that if you have one installed and it works.

You will want to have a heat alarm in the kitchen. If you have a garage, it would be a good idea to put a heat alarm in there too. Turn off and unplug electrical appliances unless they are designed to be left on – like your freezer. The ideal position is on the ceiling, in the middle of a room, and on the hallway and landing, so you can hear an alarm throughout your home.These are much better at detecting a smouldering fire, which causes a lot of smoke. As burning upholstery is usually the source of a smouldering fire, optical alarms are ideal for living rooms. A smoke alarm could save your life one day. I suspect you already know that smoke alarms will warn you of a fire, giving you time to react. They are always alert, so you can relax in the knowledge that you’re always protected… Heat alarms don’t work by detecting smoke, meaning cooking fumes don’t affect them. They activate when they detect an excessive temperature or an unusual temperature increase. Just take care to not put it directly above your hob or oven, but instead in the centre of the kitchen if possible.

Every year the fire and rescue service is called to over 600,000 fires which result in over 800 deaths and over 17,000 injuries. About 50,000 (140 a day) of these are in the home and kill nearly 500 and injure over 11,000, many which could have been prevented if people had an early warning and were able to get out in time. In fact you are twice as likely to die in a house fire that has no smoke alarm than a house that does. The best smoke alarms you can buy in 2023 1. Google Nest Protect: Best smart smoke and carbon monoxide alarm Smoke alarms are self-contained devices that incorporate a means of detecting a fire (smoke detector) and giving a warning (alarm), usually a very loud beeping sound. They are about the size of a hand and are normally fitted to the ceiling. They can detect fires in their early stages and give you those precious minutes to enable you and your family to leave your house in safety. What type of smoke alarms are available?Now that the alarms law has changed in Scotland, you'll need to install interlinked heat and smoke alarms in your home.

In a standard smoke alarm, the battery will need to be replaced every 12 months. You can buy alarms fitted with sealed 10 year batteries. The advantage is that you don’t have to replace the battery every year. Bedrooms, living rooms and hallway: Optical smoke alarms or combined optical smoke and heat alarms.Many people are deaf or have hearing problems, and a conventional smoke alarm isn’t going to work for them. And if you or someone you live with has a hearing impairment, then you’ll want to consider their needs. Wireless devices communicate with each other and other devices without the use of connecting wires. This can be through interlinking by radio or through wi-fi. Meanwhile, a system of colour-coded indicators on the central ring gives you visual alerts and updates, and even a subtle night light if you pass it in the dark. It’s more expensive than other smoke alarms, but if you’re invested in making your home smarter, this is the alarm to buy.
