Beauty Shop - Smoke alarm


Do I need to put a smoke detector in every room of my Beauty Shop ? There is 4 rooms, one reception and hall way.

Any one knows ? Thanks for help

I see you are from the UK...

Here in the U.S., I would suggest you ask your local building inspector or fire department what is required for a business, but then I suppose they might call these things something different in the UK?

Someone should come along who is familiar with the UK and provide some suggestions...

Bonsoir Self.,

I will help but I don't have full infomation related to the UK requirement however I will go thur the guideline real quick .,

you may not need at every room as long you do not have perment door at all.

However to get really specfic the best soure you can find is the Fire Service { Fire Department }

Do you have basement under your building or just a flat ?

And yes the smoke alarm have to be hardwired and intertied { interconnected }

I will get ahold one of the UK sparky which I talk to him from time to time I am sure he will fill me in and I will foward to you ASAP.
