Hi. I'd like to fit a fire alarm in our untreated loft at home (domestic property).

Please can you recommend what type of alarm would be suitable?

Ie. should I fit a smoke alarm or a heat alarm?

Thanks for your help.

I presume you mean smoke alarm? (There is a great deal of difference between a smoke alarm and a fire alarm)

I would suggest you install an optical smoke alarm which you interlink with other smoke alarms in your house.

If you already have interlinked smoke alarms in your house, you will need another one which is compatible with what you already have.

If you do not have any smoke alarms in the house now would be a good time to install interlinked alarms. The reason being, If a fire should develop in the loft you may not hear the smoke alarm for a while, where as if you have interlinked alarms you will know within seconds since they will all sound.

Safelincs can supply you with interlinked smoke alarms
