Aico Smoke Alarm Installation | Grays | Essex | RM16

Aico Smoke Alarm Installation | Grays | Essex | RM16

Having just completed 2 flats for a landlord in Southend we were asked to update the smoke alarms to Aico alarms at another property he has in Grays, Essex. Leigh Electrical Contractors have been Aico Approved Contractors for many years and choose them over all the other smoke alarms as of their supeiour quality.

Aico alarms are tested in the factory in Ireland at least 4 times before they leave making them the most effective and reliable smoke alarms on the market.

Leigh Electrical Contractors are proud not only to be an Approved NICEIC Contractor but also an Aico Approved Contractor. Aico are the European market leaders in fire detection and prevention and have been saving lives since 1990. Aico have a range of smoke alarms, heat alarms and carbon monoxide alarms to ensure your families safety.

As the flat is a rental the minimum smoke alarm grade in England is an L3 smoke alarm system so would need an alarm in the hallway, lounge and a heat alarm in the kitchen.

The flat only had a battery alarm in the hallway so the new alarms would need to be hardwired from the existing lights then linked together with the Aico Radiolink modules. These Aico Radiolink modules mean that a 3 core cable isn’t needed to interlink them together saving time, money and damage to the ceilings.

A separate Aico carbon monoxide alarm was also installed near the boiler which is needed in rental properties to meet the governments landlord responsibilities to their tenants.

Leigh Electrical Contractors have been Approved Aico Installers for many years and have recently renewed their qualifications with Aico which is import so that we can offer the latest alarms and systems to the customer.

The alarms fitted were the new lithium I model. The lithium I batteries mean you don’t need to change the batteries for 10 years so are a great choice over the 9v batteries. These alarms are also a requirement for rental properties as they cannot be disconnected.
