I own an HMO in the London borough of Croydon where I have had no choice but install wireless, battery operated radio frequency interlinked fire alarms (specifically these are the AICO 10 year Lithium battery Ei600 series alarms, the only alarms on the market frequently accepted as an alternative to the mains wired systems). I have had to install these units, rather than use the mains wired ones, because the ceilings have very intricate Victorian plaster decorations and I didn’t want to destroy them.
I have since been told that these will not be approved by Croydon Council because they do not comply with the with standard of a mains wired system (British Standard 5839 part 6: 2013 Grade D: LD2 system).
Is there anyone out there who owns an HMO and HAS had these type of fire alarms approved by their local council? Any help/info would be MUCH appreciated!!
I read an old article on this subject and someone named Gary Dully replied stating he used the exactly the same alarms and these have been approved by the council – if you are reading this Gary any information (council name etc) would be extremely helpful!
