It is that time of the year once again, 2018 is over and the planning for the year ahead has begun. Every year we hear all about the New Year’s Resolutions everyone has set for themselves and this year is no different, except, we want to ask you to put fire safety on your list.
A New Year’s resolution is a tradition in which a person resolves to change something or to accomplish a personal goal or otherwise improve their life. The CAVIUS team would like to set a small goal which could save your life and home, that goal is, check your smoke alarms regularly.
A smoke alarm is an inexpensive way to protect your family from smoke and fire injuries, but you must take the time to test it to ensure that it’s working properly.
Statistics show that over 300 fatalities in dwellings where caused by fires in 2018. Many of these dwellings didn’t have smoke alarms or they didn’t work.
In order to ensure that your home and family live in a fire safe home, CAVIUS are encouraging everyone to get into the habit of testing their smoke alarms regularly, or if you don’t have any or enough smoke alarms in your home, make sure you install some.
The government released new statistics in November 2018 highlight fire-related fatalities, you can download the report here. These statistics alone should give everyone a reason to ensure their homes are safe.
The Danish-designed CAVIUS Photoelectric Smoke Alarm is a welcome change to the traditionally large and unsightly smoke alarms we have had for years. Using all the recommended technologies from the global fire services, it offers early detection of a home fire with a loud piercing audio alert when smoke is detected, and it just looks great! Being so small and aesthetically pleasing you don’t mind placing it where it will work best – right in the centre of the room.
Don’t forget about our Thermal Heat Alarm – designed to detect fast, flaming fires in the areas not suitable to install smoke alarms such as kitchens, garages, workshops, or laundries.
The CAVIUS 40mm alarms come fitted with a 10-year long-life battery. Once they are installed with the unique and simple “Smart Clip” ceiling mechanism, the battery is activated. They have an audio alert output of 85dB(A) at 3 metres, generating a piercing alarm designed to wake you from your sleep.
CAVIUS devices have a 30-day low battery warning, increasing your chances of identifying that your smoke alarms need to be replaced.
