Technical Data Sheets
The following technical data sheets are available for this product:
Q. Does this alarm conform to BS 5446 part 1 as recommended by the Fire Service?
A. This recommendation has been superseded by BS 14604:2005. All of our smoke and heat alarms conform to this standard in accordance with the Kitemark.
Q. What sort of smoke alarm system would I need to install for a HMO?
A. BS 5839-6 recommends that one or two storey HMOs with an individual floor area of no more than 200sqm (not the total of both floors) should have a Grade D smoke alarm system installed. Grade D refers to mains powered smoke alarms with a back up battery power supply. The alarms can be interlinked either by wire or by radio signal and the system does not require a separate fire alarm panel. For HMOs of 3 storey or higher, a Grade A panel system would need to be installed. This can cover the whole of the building, or can be used just for the communal areas with a separate Grade D system installed for the individual dwellings. For both applications, the level of cover should be a minimum of LD3 (in all escape routes) but this may change according to the fire risk assessment.
Q. Can I expand an existing system of Kidde Slick mains powered smoke alarms (with existing interlink through cable) with additional Slick RF smoke alarms as shown in http://www.safelincs.co.uk/kidde-slick-wireless-smoke-alarms/?
A. Yes, you need to add an RF base to just ONE of the existing smoke alarms. Make sure you connect the existing interconnect cable into the slot marked 'i' on the new RF base. Then you can add new RF slick smoke alarms to the system. Just make sure you go through the 'enrolment' process again to ensure all units recognise each other.

A good level of information on the website, means a well informed purchase
I knew what I wanted from the two alarms I purchased. I needed both an optical and ionisation unit, both mains powered and these fitted the bill. They were really easy to install and wire in and worked when tested.

So far they have worked as expected without fault
Much better, in my opinion, than the lower priced detector alarms

These detectors look good and do the job well. They are easy to install, I like the wiring connectors and the fact the back up battery is only activated when mounted on the plinth. They are also well priced for units with a Lithium Backup Battery.

I bought this to stop all the false alarms from my wired-in ionising smoke alarm outside the kitchen.It was 15 years old and needed replacing anyway.
An excellent direct substitute for my existing BRK Model86 Race.
It fits the existing housing and its just a case of inserting the wires into the very clever wiring block on the Kidde Alarm. Even the interconnect works with the upstairs ionosing smoke alarm. Perfect.
