Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon Monoxide is a potentially lethal gas emitted from solid fuel devices such as fire-places. Normally this gas is channelled out of the dwelling but various situations can lead to the gas inadvertently entering the building.

According to NHS figures, every year over 200 people are admitted to hospital with carbon monoxide poisoning which ends up being fatal to approximately 50 of those people. Carbon Monoxide is also odourless and tasteless leading to its reputation as a silent killer.

A CO2 detector helps prevent these deaths by emitting a highly audible alarm on the detection of this gas and we would recommend fitting a detector wherever a solid fuel device is installed. From the 1st October 2015 Landlords have been legally obliged to ensure these devices are fitted where required. WCS can supply and fit these detectors and we would more than happy to discuss your requirements.

Emergency Lighting

Emergency Lighting is legally required (by The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005) to be installed in nearly all non domestic premises and Houses of Multiple Occupancy (HMO’s). Article 14 (2) (h) of the RRFSO states:

“Emergency routes and exits requiring illumination must be provided with emergency lighting of adequate intensity in the case of failure of their normal lighting”.

WCS Electrical Contractors can design and install all emergency lighting systems ensuring that you comply with your legal requirements. Please contact us for further information.
