Smoke and heat alarms must be replaced after ten years when their useful life expires. When you have mains powered smoke alarms on your ceiling this usually means having to call out an expensive electrician to carry out the work. Now there is good news for anybody who has an EI or Aico smoke alarm installed on their ceiling and wants to change it after ten years:
Safelincs and Ei Electronics have developed a range of replacement smoke alarms branded ‘easichange’ which can be installed by yourself within less than a minute. The easichange alarms come supplied with the removal tool needed to take off the old smoke alarm safely from its base and with a new alarm head which can be installed by simply sliding it onto the existing base. An easily to understand manual is included as well as a documentation label for the fuse box.
The easichange alarms are manufactured by the original smoke alarm manufacturers, Ei Electronics and conform to BS EN14604:2005. They are sold exclusively by Safelincs.
Easichange replacement smoke alarms exist for the following models:
Ei141, Ei144, Ei146, Ei151, Ei151TL, Ei154, Ei156, Ei161, Ei164, Ei166
