Where there’s smoke …

Stand-alone smoke alarms do two things: they detect smoke, and alert the occupants to the danger of fire.

They are called stand-alone because they run off batteries rather than being powered by mains electricity.

These alarms must meet ENNS Standard 14604, weighing in at less than 200 grams. The plastics they are made of, usually ABS and polypropylene, account for between 55 and 60% of their weight.
