Smoke alarms – aren’t they all the same?
It that time of year again where daylight savings is ending. This is the perfect time to check your smoke alarm or update it to a newer model with more benefits, like photoelectric. Not all smoke alarms offer the same benefits or functionality, so it’s important to be aware of the differences.
Photoelectric technology provides maximum protection against smouldering fires, and has been recently legislated into the New Zealand residential tenancies act. All new or replacement smoke alarms must be long-life photoelectric smoke alarms with a battery life of at least eight years, or a hard-wired smoke alarm system.
PDL’s photoelectric smoke alarms are easy to use, adaptable and innovative and can be both flush mounted or surface mounted. With built-in test buttons and rechargeable lithium battery with surface-mount alarms, maintenance is low. Mains powered and interconnecting options are also available within the PDL smoke alarm range.
