Health and Safety
Taking care with materials, equipment and work procedures and dealing with hazards.
Heat detectors detect heat and smoke, but different types of heat detectors have a more specific range of operation.
Some detectors, for example, can detect heat.
- for a wide range of types of fires
- in spaces where normal temperatures have a limited range
- in spaces where rapid temperature changes may occur.
Heat detectors must be appropriate to the type of detection required.
Smoke alarms generally provide earlier warning of a fire so they are preferred in most domestic situations, but a heat detector may be better in a kitchen to avoid nuisance alarms from things like burnt toast.
