Just last month, laws in England concerning the use of smoke alarms changed significantly. As a result of this change, it is now a legal requirement for landlords to make sure there are smoke alarms installed on each storey of their property. On top of this, landlords will now be required to fix or swap out any faulty alarms. Furthermore, it is also legally required for landlords to fit a Carbon Monoxide alarm in any room that features a fixed combustion appliance, meaning appliances such as boilers, fires, and water heaters.
This change is a positive one for residents across the UK as this will help massively with keeping tenants safe from Carbon Monoxide poisoning and fires, an issue which affects more UK citizens than you might have originally thought.
Where Smith Bros come in
One key part of the new ruling which we haven't covered yet is that the CO and smoke alarms which need installation also have to comply with BS EN 14604 and EN 50291-1 regulations as well as carry either a British or a European approval mark, an example of this is a kite mark. All of our products meet these criteria.
Thankfully, we have excellent quality goods from top fire & security brands such as Fire Angel. Fire Angel is an unbeatable blend of affordability and quality, meeting all necessary standards and regulations while simultaneously meeting a brilliant standard when it comes to pricing for our customers.
