BS 5839: Part 6: 2013, is the main British Standard that defines the Code Of Practice for the installation of a fire protection for the home. To assist you in making a quick and easy selection, we have put together a group of items that are all suitable to be used in a Grade D LD2 system..
The main requirement of Grade D LD2, are that the detectors used are all mains powered with an appropriate battery back up, and can be interlinked together. It is a recommendation by BS 5839: Part.6: 2004 that any new build property with no more than 3 floors and less than 200sqm per floor needs to be fitted in with a Grade D LD2 System. Grade D refers to the type of alarms fitted, and LD2 refers to the positioning of the alarms in the property, to provide the earliest possible warning in the unfortunate event of a fireNB - IF THERE IS EVER ANY DOUBT A FULL AND PROPER FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT SHOULD ALWAYS BE SOUGHT.
