Nearly two thirds of all domestic fires happen because of cooking. The kitchen is the single most dangerous place in your home, and time and time again it is the same problems that cause fires. If you know about those problems, the chances are you will be less likely to have a fire in your kitchen.

Due to the nature of kitchens they are quite regularly filled with smoke. Optical and ionisation smoke detectors in such an environment will cause false alarms but this can be avoided by using heat alarms.

These heat alarms will detect abnormally high temperatures or rapid rises in temperature and alert you of potential fire in your kitchen. Heat alarms are also effective units in garages, where fumes may be regularly present. It is recommended that you link your heat alarm to other smoke detectors in your house so to get as early a warning as possible.

The CAVIUS Thermal Heat Alarm has been designed to detect fast, flaming fires in the areas not suitable for smoke alarms; kitchens, garages, workshops or laundries.

By using state of the art technology, the Thermal Heat Alarm monitors normal and expected changes in ambient room temperature. If rapid and constant change of temperature increases, the Thermal Heat Alarm will sound.

The Thermal Heat Alarm detects flaming fires in not just one but two ways; to slowly developing flaming fires by using a fixed temperature setting and where rapid response to fire is vital, rate-of-rise is used.

Our 10 Year Thermal Heat Alarm is ideal for places where smouldering fires are likely to develop – places such as the hallway, bedroom, and lounge.

Aesthetically pleasing CAVIUS alarms suit any new home, refurbishment and areas of your home like the kitchen, garage or laundry where you want your alarm to be almost invisible. With a 10 Year long-life battery included, there is a lot to love about such a miniature alarm.
