FAQs (1)

Q. What is the difference between the 10Y29 and the Kidde PE910?

A. The 10Y29 is smaller in diameter, has a large test button to allow the use of a broom handle for testing the smoke alarm and has been tested not only to BS EN standards but also to additional, very demanding German standards, which have reduced the likelihood of nuisance alarms.

This looks as good as my previous eight year old model. However I haven't installed it yet as it is smaller in diameter than the older model I was hoping I would be able to use the fitting from the previous model which is already on the ceiling put up by the fire brigade.The new one will involve me trying to drill a new hole or holes in the ceiling and try to fit it properly.I don't feel I can do that so I am now without a smoke alarm.
