FireAngel Safety Technology Group plc
(“FireAngel” or the “Company”)
FireAngel (AIM: FA.), one of Europe’s leading developers and suppliers of home safety products, announces that it has signed a contract to supply Glasgow-based Queens Cross Housing Association with over 12,000 battery powered smoke and heat alarms.
The smoke alarms and heat alarms will be installed in over 3,500 properties across the city centre ahead of the Scottish Government’s anticipated legislative changes, which are expected to be introduced in 2019. Under the new legislation, all homes will require sealed long-life battery or mains wired alarms that are interlinked, with one functioning smoke alarm in the room that is frequently used by the occupants in the daytime, one functioning smoke alarm in every circulation space on every floor, and one heat alarm in every kitchen. A carbon monoxide alarm will also need to be fitted in each room with a carbon-fuelled appliance or flue.
The Wi-Safe 2 wireless interlink alarms from FireAngel ensure that each property achieves constant compliance through the use of interlinked alarms installed in the kitchen, hallway and living room.
The alarms will be installed by Queens Cross Housing Association’s maintenance team over an eighteen-month period, with additional FireAngel carbon monoxide alarms also being installed in properties where there is a carbon-fuelled appliance or flue present.
Jim Williams, Maintenance Manager at Queens Cross Housing Association, said: “We have used FireAngel’s carbon monoxide alarms in the past, so we know the quality and durability of the brand well. Following the Government’s legislative updates, it is vital that we ensure that we are providing every single tenant with the highest level of protection, which we can easily achieve with FireAngel’s range of interlinked alarms.”
Neil Smith, Group Chief Executive of FireAngel, commented: “We are delighted to be providing Queens Cross Housing Association with our range of interlinked alarms. Our Wi-Safe 2 alarms are designed to provide the highest level of protection at all times and ensure compliance with the imminent new legislative changes requiring interlinked alarms in all properties.”
