40% of fires originate within the kitchen, and this heat alarm is perfect for use in the kitchen to ensure an early warning of any fire. Heat alarms detect unusually rapid temperature changes. Instead of detecting only smoke, a heat alarm is capable of alerting you to a fire based on increased temperature alone.
This type of alarm is suitable in dusty areas, so it can be used in garages, lofts and attic spaces. This alarm should not be used in hallways, bedrooms or stairways. As with all alarms, this alarm should not be the only fire alarm installed in your home or building. Purchase and properly install a combination of both optical and ionisation alarms.
This compact First Alert battery operated heat alarm measures 105mm in diameter, and 55mm deep. A 9V battery is required for operation, and is included. Other features include a battery test button, hush button to silence nuisance alarms, and the ability to interlink with up to 12 other compatible alarms. The alarm is packaged in environmentally friendly packaging, and includes a manual and 5 year guarantee. Manufactured by First Alert, a division of BRK.
