A must try product...
14 Nov 2014
By maccol

" This is one of the preferred models of smoke alarms we install. Quick and easy to install with good connection block if interconnecting more than 1 alarm and a great price.
With a battery 'back up' (battery included too) you have no worries if there's a power cut.
If you haven't tried then I'd definitely recommend trying before buying a more expensive and fiddly brand. "

Fire Detectors in date?

" They have been so reliable that I missed understanding they should be replaced every 10 years or so.
Fortunately they were available at my local depot and took only minutes to replace.
Don't forget to test them regularly!
Have a peace of mind that's not misplaced. "

" Bought these to replace missing smoke alarms in my house. Was easy to wire in the connector to the terminal block that was already in the ceiling. As others have pointed out, you really need a lining box to screw the mounting plate into and to house the connector plug.
Seems to work well

Top Smoke Alarm
10 May 2012
By Nozzil
, Grantham
" I bought this to replace a similar model that had just failed after almost 10 years. With the same electrical connector and mounting plate, it fit exactly where the old one had been. The manufacturer (BRKDicon) service department were also brilliant; an engineer even phoned me back to chat through the fault with the old alarm (great customer service even if the old alarm was knackered!). Great product at a great price. "

The smoke alarm of choice
2 Aug 2011

" These alarms use regular batteries as back-up as opposed to capacitors or own brand etc.
Can add as many as necessary for alarm system plus different types of same make.
Excellent price and never had any fail yet.

Cheap and easy to install
21 Oct 2014
By MikeyG85
, Cheshire
" the product is really easy to install. One to thing to note if your replacing old bigger alarms that are already there and they are screwed into a joist the terminal block that connects to the alarm has to go into the ceiling to make the alarm flush as it doesn't tuck into the alarm like the older ones. so you may have to do some cutting out etc to make them fit neatly into your ceiling
Comes with a battery and easy to follow instructions (not that I needed them)
Hopefully I'll never need to use them but I have the peace of mind that they are there if called upon.
Will defiantly be using screwfix again! "
