New smoke and heat detectors for your home

New smoke and heat detection systems, known as LD2, will provide you with more protection in your home.

We are proactively installing the new systems to meet new health and safety standards by 2021. Smoke alarms will be fitted in your most frequently used room, usually the living room, in your hallway or landing and on each floor. There will also be a heat alarm in the kitchen. All of these alarms will be interlinked. Interlinking the alarms provides an earlier warning giving you the best chance of escape. When one alarm goes off, all the other alarms on the system activate – and there’s little chance of sleeping through that noise!

Millar Electrics Limited were selected as the successful contractor to install the new systems.  Our asset officer John recently met  Krystof Szczygiel, the Foreman coordinating these works on behalf of Millar Electrics, at one of our properties in Gottries Road in Irvine. Krystof stated that customers are delighted with these improved safety measures being installed within their homes…….joking that he had never been offered so much tea, coffee and biscuits.  Keep up the good work Krystof!’

We’ll be in touch with you directly to arrange access to install this new system to your home.  You can find out more details of our investment plan in our improvement and repairs section.
