Test It Tuesday
Test it Tuesday is a campaign to remind homeowners of the importance of checking smoke alarms weekly.
The Fire Service recommends that a Smoke Alarm is installed on every floor of your home and that they are tested once a week to make sure they are still working. A simple press of the test button on the alarm will show you if it is working instantly and could save lives. Having a Smoke Alarm in your home is really important as it will let you know that a fire has been detected, giving you time to leave the house and telephone the Fire Brigade.

Domestic Sprinklers in your home will detect heat from a fire and will start tackling the fire before the fire brigade arrives, helping to save lives and protect your property. Ultrasafe’s Fire Sprinklers use less water than a Fire Fighters hose so this helps both the environment and your home as there is usually less water damage in houses where the fire was extinguished by a sprinkler system.
Benefits of having a Domestic Sprinkler system in your home:
- Saves lives
- Protects your property and belongings
- Once activated, causes minimal amount of damage to your property
- Helps the Environment
- Supports Firefighters
How Fire Sprinkler Systems Work
Inside the fire sprinkler head there is a bulb which bursts when it detects a set temperature, usually 68°C, this allows the water to flow from the sprinkler head closest to the fire and extinguish the fire, causing the minimum of disruption to the room. If the fire continues to spread, additional fire sprinkler heads will activate and continue to suppress the flames, keeping the fire under control until the Fire Brigade arrives.
Ultrasafe can also install a fire sprinkler system which is linked to the smoke alarm to ensure that no time is wasted, in the event of a fire. Contact Ultrasafe
