The deadline for making sure that your home has a compliant fire and smoke detection system is just around the corner!  Every home in Scotland must have interlinked fire alarms by February 2022.  Interlinked means if one goes off, they all go off, so you will always hear an alarm wherever you are in your home.

If you don’t already have the new upgraded alarms, we’ll be contacting you to make arrangements to install these by February 2022.

Please work with us by letting our contractors in to install the new alarms.  This is for both your own and your neighbours’ safety and is essential work.  We can arrange appointments for this work to best suit you.

If you don’t let us in, we’ll have to force access to your home to do the installation and the cost of this will be charged to you.  If you need an electrical safety test done as well, we will do this at the same time to prevent having to visit you twice.

If you have any questions about this, please call us on 0141 946 2466 or 0141 948 1149.  If you want to check what type of alarms you have, or to make an appointment for an installation, just get in touch.  We’d love to hear from you!
