About this deal

Heat alarms don't care if you burn the toast or singe the steak; they only activate when the heat in the room rises above a certain threshold, indicating a fire rather than a bad cook! Founded by Walter Kidde, a pioneer in early smoke detection and fire suppression, Kidde is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of fire safety products. The hard wired units come with an alkaline battery back up and can be interconnected with other units from the series to create all round fire protection within the home, when one alarm senses a fire, all units will sound.

The updated Kidde Firex KF20 and KF20R alarms are mains powered, interlinking optical smoke alarms that use up to 70% less energy than previous Firex models. The mains powered detectors are inter-connectable, making them suitable for residential and light commercial environments. The long life range of alarms are fitted with a lithium backup battery for the lifetime of the unit (6 years), so you can fix and forget until the unit bleeps to let you know to replace it. In a field where time is money, the fact that Easi-fit alarms are simpler and quicker to install ensures even greater savings.Some appreciate the quality, saying that it's reliable and a perfect replacement for old fired smoke alarms. Please Note: The Kidde KF Firex models are replacements for the older Firex 4000 series, Kidde 9HI and Kidde 9HILLs and can be interlinked, however the new models cannot be used on the same base plates and use different connector blocks. However, in the event of a power failure, or if the power needs to be cut in an emergency, the Firex alarms continue to operate, powered by a backup battery.

If you are looking for a premium sealed lead acid battery then you will be delighted with our range.

The Firex KF20 optical mains smoke alarm from Kidde with a 9v battery backup is one of the most popular 230v alarms in the UK (replaced the discontinued Kidde 4973).
