New Scottish legislation for Fire and Smoke alarms – are you compliant?

Scottish legislation has changed.
The law in Scotland has changed and as of 1 February 2022 every home now needs to have interlinked fire alarms. Being interlinked means if one alarm goes off, they all go off. You may not always hear the alarm closest to the fire, especially if you’re somewhere else in the house.
There must also be adequate Carbon Monoxide protection in any room with a fuel burning appliance.

We can help and advise on upgrading existing and new premises meet the requirements of the new legislation. As an AICO registered expert installer, we install the new 10 year sealed battery detectors which requires no mains power wiring which also means a quick mess free installation for all our clients
