Which smoke alarm do you need?
We provide the two main types of smoke alarms: Ionisation smoke alarms and Optical smoke alarms – but which do you need?
Ionisation smoke alarms detect fast-flaming fires that emit invisible particles. These fires typically consume upholstery and similar combustible materials, and can spread in no time at all. Ionisation smoke detectors ‘ionise’ the air in the alarm, and sound when the presence of smoke is detected. We recommend installing Ionisation smoke alarms on landings and hallways to quickly detect large fires.
Optical smoke alarms are designed to detect visible particles that you find with smouldering fires that produce dense, toxic smoke. Optical smoke detectors use a beam of light and a photoelectric sensor to detect smoke – they deflect the light onto the sensor when in contact with smoke, resulting in the sounding of the alarm. Install Optical smoke alarms near, but not in, your kitchen.
It’s recommended that you have both types of smoke alarm in your building, with at least one installed on each floor. We suggest having at least one Carbon Monoxide Detector fitted in your property alongside your smoke alarms.
