What Fire alarms do we install?
We use Aico fire alarms. These fire alarms are one of the industries leading fire alarm specialists who sold 3.6 million alarms in 2017! They also work alongside local authorities to make homes safe for tenants so you know you are in safe hands.
There are serval powering options for your fire alarm
- Battery-powered (most common)
- Mains powered
- Mains powered with a battery backup
We highly recommend having a mains powered fire alarm with the battery back up because this gives you the most protection as it has two sources of power to ensure it works when you need it most.
The battery-powered smoke alarm options have an inbuilt lithium battery, which is rated to last 10 years, which is the ideal fire alarm system if you don’t want to have it wired into the mains.
