Aico smoke alarms installed in Lancashire flats
West Lancashire Borough Council has installed Aico mains powered RadioLink systems into its blocks of flats to allow for alarm interconnection between communal areas and individual apartments.160RC Series mains powered optical smoke alarms on RadioLink bases have been fitted in the communal areas and multi-sensor fire alarms, again on RadioLink bases, inside the entrance of each flat. The alarms have been ‘house coded’ together as one system. This means that even if there is another RadioLink system next door, there will be no cross-communication.
The alarms, which feature 10 year rechargeable Lithium cell back up, have also been house coded to a wall mounted control switch within the communal areas. The switch allows the user to easily test, locate and silence alarms from one convenient location.
