FireAngel SafetyTech - Contract win
The Company will supply West of Scotland Housing Association ("WSHA") with a combination of interlinked mains and battery-powered products to around 3,500 homes.
This contract win follows the requirement for greater safety standards introduced in the Housing (Scotland) Act, which came into force on 1 February 2019. This requires all homes to have a smoke alarm fitted in the living room or lounge and in circulation spaces such as hallways, landings and kitchens and all fitted alarms are required to be interlinked so they can be heard throughout the property. Homes are also required to have a carbon monoxide alarm fitted wherever there are fixed combustion appliances.
Neil Smith, Group Chief Executive of FireAngel, commented: "Further to the implementation of the recent new legislation in Scotland, we are delighted to have signed another housing association. This follows our recent agreements signed with Queens Cross Housing Association, River Clyde Homes and Caledonia Housing Association and demonstrates the demand for FireAngel's compliant and interlinked products."
