Modern life means the majority of us have many electrical appliances within our homes – from televisions and toasters to microwaves and mobile phones. These all do a fantastic job of making our lives easier and more convenient, but it also means that there’s a greater risk of fires. Safety should always be a priority in the home and our range of fire extinguishers and blankets will help you to stay prepared and protect your family.
Smoke alarms are an absolute must for all households. One should be fitted on each floor of your home and they should also be periodically tested. Choose one with a test button that spares your ears by sounding the alarm at a reduced volume. Meanwhile, carbon monoxide detectors are essential to alert members of your household to the presence of this highly dangerous gas.
Electric fires are an easy way to add some extra heat to a specific room in your home. An adjustable thermostat means you can control exactly how much warmth you’re getting too. However, while they’re extremely convenient, it’s a good idea to take some extra safety precautions, especially if you share your home with children or pets, and fire guards are the answer here. A radiator that’s on the hot side can also be a potential hazard for little ones or elderly members of your family, so a radiator cover can be the perfect solution.
Thinking of getting out of the house and back to nature for the weekend? Not all campsites allow camp fires and you may be bringing a camping stove along, in which case, having a fire blanket to hand is always a good idea.
