Thakeham Homes, part of the Thakeham Group, delivers a range of new homes including bungalows, apartments and houses in sought after locations throughout Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire. Thakeham is proud of its exceptional attention to detail, particularly when it comes to safety. The latest generation of Firex smoke alarms offers Standard, Long Life and Rechargeable battery back-up versions of each sensing technology, giving nine options in all. And it costs less than £1 per year to operate a Firex alarm – a major benefit for householders. Kidde’s Firex range can also be interconnected with the company’s hard-wired carbon monoxide alarms using the unique ‘Smart Interconnect’ feature to create a comprehensive system for whole-home protection. Crucially, all the interconnected alarms have different, distinct alarm sounder patterns for carbon monoxide and fire, supported by different display messages on the digital 4MDCO model. So, without the need for any further operation of the system – such as remote switches – Smart Interconnect automatically alerts occupants of the specific hazard that confronts them. Kidde Safety Europe is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of smoke, heat and carbon monoxide alarms.

Door closer enhances fire safety

British designed and manufactured, Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers from Samuel Heath tick all the right boxes when it comes to fire safety and are particularly suitable for social housing applications.

Powermatics carry the CE mark, meet the requirements for one-hour and half-hour fire doors under BS EN 1634-1 and boast Certifire accreditation.

In addition to impressive fire performance credentials, Powermatic closers are totally concealed when the door is closed. This not only helps to create a more homely interior, but also enhances the reliability of fire doors by reducing the risk of damage through vandalism or tampering, which could render the fire door useless.

Powermatic’s appeal to the social housing sector is further enhanced by its ability to enable doors to meet accessibility requirements.
