Quality-approved lifesavers

All you need to know about smoke alarm devices

More than 180,000 fire deaths worldwide every year (WHO) - mostly by smoke inhalation.

By far the most frequent fire trigger:

Not negligence, but electrical failure. E.g. the television that burns out in standby mode at night (always switch off) or the aged socket that starts smouldering (can unfortunately not be switched off).

2/3 of fire victims die in their sleep at night.
