14.11.13 - Fire Safety – it pays to be safe
Fire prevention is currently a hot topic in the UK with Fire Services urging the public to be on guard with possible fire hazards during their planned strikes.
SRC can only reiterate the message that Fire prevention, especially in the work place and sleeping accommodation is key to preventing potentially hazardous fires.
Throughout the winter Fire Safety should be on everyone’s minds, not just the Fire Service and professionals like ourselves as everyone cranks up the heat, uses additional heating such as calor gas fires and electric fan heaters and therefore increasing the risk of fire.
The biggest aid in Fire prevention is the use and installation of working smoke detectors.
Smoke detectors are recommended to be replaced every 10 years due to reliability and False alarm management (Both of which are British Standard Compliance issues).
Below is a statement straight from the biggest supplier of smoke detectors’ website
Recommended Working Life of Apollo Detectors
Detectors manufactured by Apollo have a recommended working life of 10 years when used in dry, non-corrosive atmospheres and provided that they are regularly inspected, tested, cleaned and recalibrated as outlined in these pages. This period has been assessed on the basis of information provided by component suppliers and on twenty years’ experience of servicing these products.
Most Apollo detectors will continue to operate within specification after 10 years’ service, however, gradual deterioration of integrity and reliability should be allowed for.
In the interests of safety and the avoidance of unwanted alarms, Apollo recommends the routine replacement of detectors after 10 years’ service.
We have a fantastic offer on detector replacements valid until 1st January 2014;
Apollo S60 or S65 detectors £32.50 each
