You are four times more likely to die in a house fire without a working smoke alarm, yet up to a third of households in the UK don’t have one that works.
“It’s thanks to my late dad, that I came up with the idea of RetractAlarm. At the time he was suffering from dementia and told me he couldn’t get the smoke alarm down from the ceiling when it started bleeping in the middle of the night, so he smashed it with a hammer instead! Not exactly the safest option! Every single week, two people over the age of 65 die in a house fire. I want to change this statistic.”
When was last time you tested your smoke alarm, or replaced the batteries? Honestly?!
Life is precious. And something like a smoke alarm can literally make a difference between life and death. It is recommended that you test your smoke alarms weekly.
However, smoke alarms can be in an awkward spot to reach. Climbing up stairs….balancing on furniture….leaning over the bannister…..surely that’s not very safe either?
According to Good point campaign research*, 85% of people put their safety at risk when testing their smoke alarm.
RetractAlarm makes testing and servicing your smoke alarm easy. With no need to climb, simply lower the alarm down quickly and easily to your level, then once you’re done it pops back up to the ceiling – job done!
The Retractalarm product life expectancy 10 years + when used in accordance with instructions., prices at just £18.99 if ordered directly which equates to just 15p per month over that time. Not a big price to pay for the safety of your parents, your children, your friends or your own household.
