New Fire Safety Standards

By February 2022, every home in Scotland needs interlinked fire alarms. Alarms that talk to each other – so when one goes off, they all go off – helping everyone to react quicker and save more lives.

You might not hear the alarm closest to the fire, especially if you’re somewhere else in the house. An interlinked system alerts you to danger immediately wherever you are in your home.

Every home will need:

• 1 smoke alarm in the room you spend most of the day (usually your living room)

• 1 smoke alarm on every floor, either in the hallway or on the landing

• 1 heat alarm in the kitchen

All should be ceiling mounted and interlinked.


If your home has a carbon-fuelled appliance – like a boiler, fire, heater or flue – you’ll also need a separate carbon monoxide detector. These do not have to be interlinked.

We can help you by quickly and efficiently supplying and installing the alarms you’ll need in your home.  Let our extremely knowledgeable team look after everything for you.
