FIRE & SAFETY

Detection Equipment

Your apartment is equipped with both smoke and heat detection alarms which are mains powered and complete with battery back-up. Smoke detectors are used throughout while heat detectors are installed in the kitchen/lounge areas. It is your responsibility to that all detection alarms are tested on a weekly basis utilising the test button on the unit and that the batteries are replaced on an annual basis.

Please refer to the instructions leaflet in the Appendix of the residents guide for details of how the detector functions and full clear instructions for maintenance of this important piece of equipment.  IT MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE. 

Sprinklers are of the automatic drop down type. Under normal conditions they are concealed within the ceiling only showing a white cap, as shown below. Once the sprinkler system is activated the heads drop down and saturate the area with water. Should you notice anything unusual about your sprinkler detector please let us know as soon as possible. It is important you do not tamper with the sprinklers. 

Your flat is in a building designed to be fire-resisting. As such a fire should not spread from one flat to another, so that you need not leave your home if there is a fire elsewhere in the block. On that basis the fire procedure for your block is a stay put policy.
