Description

FireAngel is a major player in the field of CO, fire and smoke detection and this unique system is clearly a clever, albeit pricey, way to protect the entire household in one fell swoop. The fact that it comes with two types of ‘attachment’ is a big plus in my opinion, as unlike most smoke detectors, a CO detector can be stood up on a surface, like a kitchen worktop for example. If you need help setting up your alarm call us on 0800 077 4472. The number is free to call. How loud is it? Carbon monoxide sensors have a finite lifespan of between five and seven years, although a few manufacturers now claim that their sensors will last a full ten years. Generally speaking, it’s worth playing it safe and replacing your alarm a year or two before its life is supposed to run out. Tests in the US have shown that alarms over eight years old can fail to detect CO at levels of above 400ppm. Thankfully, there’s an early-warning solution in the form of a carbon monoxide alarm that costs only a few pounds more than a smoke alarm. Be aware, though, that not all CO detectors are sensitive enough and some no-name brands are downright useless – and, therefore, dangerous. Ensure you opt for a reputable brand such as FireAngel, First Alert, Kidde, Nest or Lifesaver.

This product meets the requirements of the newer EN 50291-1:2018 standard. In a nutshell, it basically means it has passed tests that conform to certain standards which protects consumers and with base standards and better functionality from a product such as a carbon monoxide detector. MEET THE LATEST 2018 REGULATION – Our products are updated closely according to The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015, label with the document code “EN 50291:2018” released by Technical Committee. It is important for you to make sure your CO alarm is labeled with the latest code, not only for your own properties but also the commercial and residential tenancy.

It’s a really poignant statistic, especially considering the fact that 100% of these deaths were needless and entirely avoidable with the assistance of a simple carbon monoxide (CO) detector that would audibly alarm when CO levels reached a specific threshold. Because of the small, compact design, this detector is suitable for alternative living spaces, such as in camper vans, RV’s, motorhomes, and boats like narrow boats. Now we have been focuing on a series of Wolf Shield products so we are confident to further provide invisible shields for your family. Why Wolf shield Another good idea is to have a CO alarm in your garage or shed, especially if you work on things like cars, motorbikes and oher equipment that burns a fuel. Regulation & Standards Most manufacturers suggest locating your alarm next to or near a gas appliance, and it’s worth having one in the same room as any fire or wood-burning stove. It should be around 1.5m from the ground and at least 30cm away from any ceiling, and most can be mounted on a worktop, shelf or table – or simply mounted on the wall.

Put it somewhere high up, near a gas or fossil burning appliance. Learn more about where to put it Need to know more? Why should I have a CO alarm? Built-in 10-year lithium battery: This means that our CO alarm does not need to be wired or plugged into a power outlet. The built-in battery can work continuously for ten years without changing the battery in the middle, which is very convenient for people and prevents the inconvenience of power outages. The Nest Protect passed our sealed incense test with flying colours: the smoke alarm went off first, followed by the CO alarm five minutes later; according to the app, the CO level was 414ppm and increasing. We can’t think of a better CO currently alarm on the market, particularly as it also detects smoke.Unlike other CO detectors, the Nest notifies you (and anyone else who has registered) with a notification on your mobile device, even if you’re in another country. It also does the same for smoke. The main unit also speaks a warning in a calm English female voice when it detects smoke or CO in a room. If the CO levels are slowly increasing, the voice will warn you before setting off the alarm. But if CO levels become dangerously high, the centre lamp glows red and a very loud, high-pitched beep is emitted along with a spoken warning letting you know which room is affected. You can temporarily cancel any alarms by holding the “Stop” button on the app or by pressing the unit’s central button. Most people will not experience any symptoms from prolonged exposure to CO levels of under, say, 40ppm. It depends on the length of exposure, but the real danger level starts at around 400ppm (two to three hours of exposure at this level can be life-threatening). To give you some idea of how dangerous higher levels of concentration can be, 1,500ppm could result in death within an hour and 6,000ppm within 15 minutes. If you want it to be fixed to a wall, you’ll need a drill. However, if you want it on the wall, why bother with drills and screws, potentially damaging plaster and a skimmed surface?

In this article, I’ll be doing a hands on review of the Wolf Shield Carbon Monoxide Detector. Carbon monoxide, as we all know, is a silent killer in the UK. In 2020 alone (latest data available), 116 people lost their lives because of carbon monoxide poisoning. The power indicator will flash periodically to tell you there is power to the unit, whislt the other two will flash if the unit is in alarm or there is a fault. Use & InstallationI’m a huge advocate for carbon monoxide detectors in homes, and for me, they have the same importance as a smoke detector. Unfortunately, this importance isn’t shared across the broader demograph of the United Kingdom, with Policy Connect estimating that only 46% of homes in the UK have a CO detector installed. MEET THE LATEST EN 50291-1:2018 – Our products are updated closely according to The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015, label with the document code “EN 50291:2018” released by TUV. It is important for you to make sure your CO alarm is labeled with the latest code, not only for your own properties but also the commercial and residential tenancy. It’s also worth noting that the test button on these devices doesn’t actually test the sensor – it only makes sure that the circuit’s working. Yes. Since it’s small and battery operated, you can even take it with you to your camping trips – in fact, a surprising number of carbon monoxide incidents happen on camping trips. When do I need to replace my alarm?

This standard replaced EN 50291-1:2010 in 2021, so you can be sure that this detector conforms to all new regulations. Pros & Cons The one downside with this model is that it runs off a pair of AA batteries, which need to be switched out roughly every three years, making three changes during its lifespan. This isn’t a huge issue, but it means this model isn’t suitable for use in Scottish homes. It is, however, suitable for use in a boat or caravan, making it a good option if you need an alarm on your next boating or caravanning trip.

A Department for Business and Trade spokesman said: "We take public safety extremely seriously which is why we are consulting on modernising our product safety framework to hold online marketplaces to account, ensuring items sold online meet the same standards as on the high street.

Whether you wish to stand it up or screw it to the wall, both options are easy and everything is included in the box. Style & Looks The health effects of CO depend on the concentration and length of exposure (carbon monoxide concentration is measured in parts per million). According to respected CO alarm manufacturer Kidde, “a carbon monoxide detector is a time-weighted alarm that measures the buildup of carbon monoxide in a house.
