With the recent changes to BS 5839-6:2019, Aico, the UK supplier of domestic mains powered fire and carbon monoxide alarms, has condensed the information into a pocket-sized guide.
British Standard BS 5839-6:2019 covers specific recommendations for fire alarm systems in all domestic premises and covers both new-build and existing properties. The standard contains a large amount of detail on all aspects relating to the design and installation of fire alarm systems, including the type of alarm to install and the areas of the property to protect.
To further support customers with the changes, Aico has updated its counter mat for wholesalers. The counter mat has a picture of a house with alarms in situ, providing the information about where to site alarms conforming to the changes in BS 5839-6:2019 Table 1.
