    Replacment detector

    Hi,

    I have just taken on a new flat in a block and the smoke detector within the flat that is mains connected and connected to the central fire system for the block is missing. Obviously unplugged for some reason and never replaced. photo.JPG

    Can anyone got an pointers on how to identy the right replacment detector and where to get one from. If it the right one it should be just a plug in. Thanks.

    Picture attached of the fitting.

    Ask one of the neighbours if you can have a look at their detector. Or if the same detectors are used throughout the block, ask the management company.

      Thanks already thought of that and they are non-descript so impossible to tell who the manufacture is. Managment company will be useless as they will be sat in an office miles away and who wants to call Peverel !

      I was wondering if they were generic.

        Would property's Building Control application possibly mention the make of smoke detectors?

        Also, maybe it would be worth calling Peveral. I bet someone somewhere is charging a small fortune for 'maintaining' the fire alarm.
        To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.

          Have you taken the plate off & seen if there is a name on t'other side??

          Is it in/outside kitchen & kept going off when toast was made.. ??
          I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

            I would try a local eletrical company or wholesaler that can install BS5839 PART 6 detectors as that is the type you will need. I would also recommend an "optical" type as these are less prone to false alarms from kitchens (a reason why it may have been removed?) and they respond better to smouldering fires.
