It’s common knowledge that the utilisation of smoke alarms helps save lives and homes. However, traditional solutions, such as ionisation and optical smoke alarms, offer contrasting benefits that can make correct specification confusing and difficult. James King, Sales Director at Sprue Safety Products, discusses how SONA by FireAngel is utilisingthe technology used and trusted by the UK Fire and Rescue Service to drive the mains smoke alarm market towards a simplified alternative.
The Fire and Rescue Service is called out to approximately 50,000 domestic fires per annum, leading to almost 500 deaths and 11,000 injuries caused by fire. From these statistics it’s quite simple to see the importance of smoke alarms, meaning correct selection is absolutely essential.
