Since 1992, building regulations stipulate that a minimum of one smoke alarm be wired directly to the mains in every new build. These will need replacing every ten years to ensure they continue to function properly.
Fire fighting equipment in the home is fire extinguishers and fire blankets. While the extinguisher has the sole purpose of putting out a fire, the fire blankets are dual purpose and can smoother a fire, while a larger blanket can be wrapped around an individual while trying to escape from the flames.
Our qualified and experienced team can assess your needs, advise on which type of extinguisher is needed and take into account the vulnerability of the occupiers.

Each year an estimated 60,000 homes experience a fire. Of that, approximately 500 people are killed and another 10,000 are injured. Although, most of these fires take place in the kitchen, electrical faults/faulty appliances can occur in other parts of the home.
