Product Overview

The FireAngel SO-601 is a 9V optical smoke alarm with toast proof sensing technology, making it less prone to sound falsely when cooking fumes are present. As the SO-601 is now discontinued FireAngel recommends the ST-622 Thermoptek smoke alarm as the most suitable replacement because it will fit on to existing S0-601 base plates. This means it can be swapped over in seconds with no drilling or obvious marks visible on the ceiling.

FAQs (9)
Q. Do I need an ionisation or optical smoke alarm?
A.

We recommend using an optical smoke alarm in hallways, as these are less likely to go off because of cooking fumes from a connected kitchen. Optical smoke alarms are also ideal for living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, as they are good at detecting smouldering fires from soft furnishings. For landings we recommend ionisation alarms. Heat alarms are designed for kitchens and garages. No alarms should be installed in bathrooms.

Q. Can I put my smoke alarm on the wall, or must it be mounted on the ceiling?
A.

The best location to install your smoke alarm is in the centre of the ceiling rather than on the wall. During a fire, smoke initially rises and then spreads to the sides of the room. By installing the alarm on the ceiling, this ensures that you receive the earliest possible warning of a fire.

Q. What is the best way to test my alarm?
A.

We recommend testing alarms by pressing the test button built-in to the unit, as this is designed to simulate the detection of the target stimuli (usually smoke, heat, or CO) at the alarm sensor. You should test your alarms regularly to ensure they are protecting building occupants, preferably every week. For more detailed guidance, check the manual included with your alarm.

Q. How long do smoke alarms last before needing replacement?
A.

It is recommended that smoke alarms are replaced after 10 years. This is because the sensors in the smoke alarms become less sensitive and may not activate when a fire is present.

Q. How are smoke alarms fitted to the ceiling?
A.

Smoke alarms can be either screwed to the ceiling using the holes on the base plate (screws provided) or fixed using a sticky pad, this can be added to your basket through the ordering process.

Perfect replacement for a broken and out of date model

Goes off when it should and only when it should. I bought this as a replacement for a previous incarnation of the same or similar alarm from safelinks. Very happy with it. No ridiculous squawking over slightly singed toast and other such nonsense - so when it does go off you know to take it seriously. Wouldn%u2019t be without it (them actually!)

It was easy to attach it to the previous 10 year old FireAngel's base plate, is neat and tidy on the ceiling and does what it's meant to do.
