Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Any reputable landlord knows that the safety of their tenants is of the utmost importance and since October 2015 it has been a legal requirement that landlords install working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in all their properties. Those who don't install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms would face sanctions and could face up to a £5,000 civil penalty.
As with any device that has the potential to save lives it needs regular servicing and maintenance and so Estuary Technical Solutions provide a testing, maintenance and installation service that ensures your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detector are functioning safely and reliably.
Our detailed testing procedure involves checking that the correct voltage is being supplied to any mains fed devices or, for battery powered devices, that the battery is still within its date range, we also test that the audible sound produced by the alarms can be heard within the specified range and that any linked devices are in fact linked and operating as a network of devices as opposed to just stand-alone units.
For landlords wishing to install smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors we can advise on the number of units required and the optimum positioning of each device to create an efficient first line of defence should a fire or carbon monoxide leak occur.
