Hi All, 
Can you advise me in my question? According to the British Standards smoke detector should be placed on each full landing or otherwise in a staircase in a residential building using a dedicated loop? The residential building has 34 levels.

Thank you for help.

Yes, each floor landing (not half landing) should have a detector. If it's an older building the standards used to have spacing such that only every third floor would be covered, but that's from a long time ago.

The detectors may not be part of a fire alarm system but a smoke control system in which case depending on the system design could differ from the above.
