Alarm Selector

Our simple to use Alarm Selector helps you to find out which smoke, heat or Carbon Monoxide alarms you should install and where in a typical example property they should be fitted.

All alarm system designs have been developed in-line with British Standards and Building Regulations, but they should not be used in place of a Fire Risk Assessment as there are many factors not included within our Selector that can affect the level of coverage needed. There are also many regional variations within the standards that need to be taken into consideration.
