New Specifier Pocketbook From Aico

New Specifier Pocketbook From Aico

The Pocket Book, with its ‘6 Steps to Successful Specification’, includes alarm grades and categories, choice of back-up supply, alarm sensor types, alarm quality, installation methods and additional features to consider such as alarm control switches.

Other subjects covered within the Pocket Book include Testing & Commissioning, Maintenance & Troubleshooting, easy to understand Wiring Diagrams and an overview on the key standards and procedures in this field, including BS 5839-6:2004, Building Regulations, LACORS and fire risk assessment.

In addition to traditional alarm systems, the Housing Specifier’s Pocket Book also addresses new technology and innovations, such as RadioLINK wire-free alarm interconnection, the award winning Multi-Sensor Fire Alarm and control devices, all of which are unique to Aico.

Dedicated sections within the Pocket Book are given to Aico CO Alarms and to Fire, Sound and Moisture Barriers. The CO Alarms section explains the importance of fitting a CO alarm, as well as advice on which type to choose, where to site them, wiring and interconnection with smoke alarm systems. The Fire, Sound and Moisture Barriers section covers the use of Aico’s Firecap range and Loftcap downlight covers, explaining the multiple benefits of using these low cost safety products.

The Housing Specifier’s Pocket Book is packed full of information yet its small size means it can be used in the office and also easily carried to and from site for quick reference if needed.
