Explanation of alarm detector types:
Ionisation detectors are more responsive to flaming fires (e.g. Paper, Clothing) and are normally located between sleeping areas.
Optical (sometimes called Photoelectric) detectors are more responsive to smouldering fires (e.g. Upholstery TV’s) and are recommended for use in the living areas like your lounge or immediately outside the door leading off of your lounge in the hall.
Heat alarms are for use in areas where a smoke alarms would not be suitable (e.g. Garage or Boiler Room) and trigger when there is a build up of heat.
Heat Alarms should not be used as the only method of protection.
