Smoke alarms are essential in any home or business. In the event of a fire, your smoke alarm will sound, alerting you to the danger, and providing you with an essential early warning about the fire that is looming. There are a number of different types of smoke alarm and smoke detector. It can get quite confusing about what type is best for you and your property. That’s where Glenco come in, as we can advise the best solution for your situation, and ensure you are fully fire protected.
At Glenco, we have installed tens of thousands of smoke alarms across Sydney over our many years working in fire safety. Often smoke detectors fail, not because of a technical malfunction, but because those in the home do not realise the batteries have run out, or because irritating false alarms cause individuals to disconnect the alarms. Smoke alarms can be equipped with a battery system that powers them, or they can also be hard wired into your property along with a battery system that is used as a backup should your power fail. This is a great option since the hard wired alarm will not run out of battery, and has the backup battery so you’re protected 100% of the time.
