Smoke alarms

I would advise not to go for the cheap ones with a p9 battery as you can find the battery can get taken out by some tenants for kids toys etc. Also batteries supplied with these cheaper alarms can have a short shelf life.

I use tamperproof Kidd or Fireangel ones that have special batteries with a 10 year  life span. Though we sometimes only get 8-9 years from some.

The requirement is one alarm for each floor. Sealed alarm is best. I have yet to find a tenant who will replace the batteries and it is normally only ever done by them knowing a property inspection is coming up.    Sad but true.

I always have a fire alarm fitted and tested and working order certificate signed by tenant and landlord for new occupancies. Always cover your backside.......for everything!!
