2022 Scottish Regulation Alarms
To comply with the new law in Scotland, all rented and owned homes must have interlinked smoke and heat alarms installed by February 2022. It is the property owner’s responsibility to ensure their home meets the new legislation, which has come about because of the Grenfell fire in London in 2017.
Interlinked alarms ensure that when one alarm goes off in the home, they all go off, which ensures you’ll hear an alarm wherever the potential fire has been detected. There are two types of alarms you can use, either battery or mains-wired alarms, interconnected either by using wireless technology or hard-wired.
