Describes requirements and test methods for kits and their components intended to be assembled to create smoke alarm systems for deaf and hard of hearing people, for the purpose of life safety in dwellings.

This part of BS5446 specifies requirements and test methods for kits and their components intended to be assembled to create smoke alarm systems for deaf and hard of hearing people, for the purpose of life safety in dwellings. It also specifies requirements and test methods for such smoke alarm kits intended for use in leisure accommodation vehicles (LAVs).

NOTE1 Although this part of BS5446 provides the specification for smoke alarm kits for dwellings, it is recognized that these kits, or components thereof, might be used in other situations, where similar requirements could be anticipated.

This part of BS5446 does not cover:

  • the use of stand-alone smoke alarms;

  • extensions or modifications to existing installations;

  • outdoor use of any component of a kit.

NOTE2 Equipment conforming to this part of BS5446 might not be suitable for use in boats, due to the corrosive atmosphere.

This part of BS5446 does not cover medical vibrating devices as defined in BSENISO9999; these are covered by BSEN12182.
