What alarm types do I need? – Aico releases improved digital Alarm Selector

16 October 2019

Following feedback from customers, Aico the market leader in fire and CO protection have released an improved version of their web-based Alarm Selector.

A common question that our technical teams are frequently asked is “What alarm type do I need?” The Alarm Selector has been designed to guide customers through this question and gives you through a step by step online guide, enabling customers to produce a specification for their alarm requirements for their properties. Customers can then take a basic or detailed specification to their local wholesaler, to order the products required or they can download a PDF version with no product codes.

The simple mini specification gives customers the following information:-

  1. Alarm System Type
  2. Alarm Types and Recommended Products
  3. Alarm Features
  4. System Control and Installation
  5. Training
  6. Inspecting and Testing
  7. Helpful house graphic to show which rooms are covered by which alarm type

The Alarm Selector has been updated to give all the latest alarm types in conformance with BS 5839-6:2019.

The Alarm Selector can be found on the Aico website and takes a few minutes to complete, whereby the specification and information on alarm types can be downloaded or emailed to the customer.

This tool makes determining which alarm types required quick and easy and has been designed to be a helpful addition for our customers.
