Dec 27, 2022

Why you need a fire detection device

The purpose of a fire detection system or also called as fire alarm system, is to warn us of an emergency so that we can take precautions to safeguard ourselves, our employees, and the public. Offices, factories, and public buildings all have fire alarms. Although they are sometimes disregarded until an emergency, at which point they may just save our lives There are two major types of fire detection device suitable for homes. One of them is the home fire alarm device and another one is the heat detector.


HFAD (Home Fire Alarm Device)

The majority of fire-related deaths are caused by smoke inhalation of the toxic gases produced by fires. Our smoke detector will sound an alarm when smoke is detected The Home Fire Alarm Device (HFAD), also known as a smoke detector, is manufactured by the leading Irish company in fire and carbon monoxide detection. It is a mandate for all new BTO and new private estates to be fitted with a HFAD since 2018. Our ei650 smoke alarm is SCDF and Singapore approved.


Heat Alarm

As smoke is really common in kitchens, the heat detector wil be ideal as it will be less prone to a false alarm as compared to a smoke detector. The heat detector will alarm when the temperature reaches 580 degrees celsius. It will automatically reset and silence the alarm when the temperature drops below this limit. Our ei603 kitchen heat alarm comes with an inbuilt 10 year lithium battery and 5 year warranty.
