Ionisation alarms should never be used near shower rooms, kitchens, or other environments where smoke or steam may be present. This Firex KF10 alarm is best suited for bedrooms, living rooms, stairway landings and hallways. This model replaces the now discontinued Kidde 4870, and is one the most popular alarms in the UK. It is interconnectable with as many as 23 other compatible units by Firex and Kidde.
Easy to install, this alarm fully meets the standard BS5839 pt6 Grade D, and is CE marked. It also features both a hush button to quickly quiet nuisance alarms, and a battery test button to ensure your battery level is safe. If you select the long life option, the alarm will also come equipped with a lithium back-up battery that has a guaranteed 6 year life. The included, standard 9V battery should be replaced annually. Includes screws and wall plugs for ceiling installation. Measures 127mm in diameter, and 39mm deep. Manufactured by Kidde Firex.
