Ready for October Change in Fire Security Regulation

Amthal Fire & Security is working with local private landlords to help ensure fire security is up to date for residents in line with latest Government regulations.

Under the new measures announced by Housing Minister Brandon Lewis, Private Landlords will be required by law to install working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in all their properties.

The regulation, expected to take effect from October 2015, is part of a wider Government initiative to protect public safety, whilst at the same time has been considered carefully to avoid any mandate introduction that would push up rents and / or restrict the supply of homes. 

England’s 46 fire and rescue fire and rescue authorities are expected to support private landlords in their own areas to meet their new responsibilities with the provision of free alarms, with grant funding from government.

Says Paul Rosenthal, Sales Director at Amthal Fire & Security: “The Government is committed to ensuring the safety and security of every resident, but is also mindful of ensuring Landlords can continue to offer affordable solutions.

“This launch has been prepared and arrives with full support of both fire and rescue services and security companies like Amthal Fire & Security.  We are all ready to help Private Landlords achieve the requirements in time for October, to ensure every resident is safe and secure in their home.”

Private landlords who fail to install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms would face sanctions and could face up to a £5,000 civil penalty.

As the world becomes more digital and buildings more intelligent, homeowners and businesses are looking at more efficient ways to secure buildings.  Access control enables you total control on who has access to your building.
