Kidde have added mains powered radio-interlinked smoke alarms to their range of 230V smoke alarms. The new slimline design offers customers an additional choice in our smoke alarm range. The alarms conform to BS5839-pt6 grade D, E and F and are installed in new residenatial conversions and extensions, small to medium offices and many HMOs.
The Kidde Slick smoke and heat alarms can be wired from the nearest light fitting, making them cheaper to install and less intrusive than other hard wired smoke alarms. They are fitted with an alkaline back up battery as standard but this can be upgraded to a 10 year lithium battery if required. The alarms have a unique fast-fitting base and a screwless connection block making installation as easy as possible.
The units talk to each other through a wireless connection. This means that when one alarm detects fire all the alarms will be activated and begin to sound within seconds. Up to 15 alarms can be interlinked together in one system and the house coding process is very simple.
With their new design Kidde have really thought of everything: the alarms are fitted with an LED that will enable you to identify the initiating smoke alarm. The alarms also have a flashing LED that will give you silent notice for 30 days that the batteries are getting low. After this 30 day period the alarms will then give off the usual warning chirp.
