Fire alarm

There are two main types of alarms for detecting fire (smoke and heat). A smoke detector, as the name suggests, emits an alarm when it detects smoke, while a heat detector sounds when it detects particularly high temperatures. Both, however, are designed to alert you to the presence of a fire and are therefore an essential addition to every home. Take a look at what we can offer in way of Fire Alarms in Stockport.

Carbon monoxide alarm

Similar to a smoke alarm, carbon monoxide detectors are designed to detect carbon monoxide – an odourless and flammable poisonous gas that can be fatal if inhaled. It’s recommended that you install a carbon monoxide alarm in every room with a fuel-burning appliance (such as a gas boiler, fire, or stove).

Burglar alarm

While there are many different types of burglar alarm, they are all designed to alert the homeowner to the presence of an intruder by detecting motion. The alarm control panel is connected (either with wires or wirelessly) to the motion detectors which are often strategically positioned above key entry points, such as windows and doors.
