Like for Like Replacement for Smoke Alarms?

Postby StuartBennett1 » Sat Aug 31, 2019 3:35 pm

Hello. I’m changing our smoke alarms. Our old ones are BRK Electronics model 86 Racen. Should I buy like for like or can anyone suggest a cheaper alternative? Many thanks.

I believe the ones you have are obsolete.

Aico and fire angel seem to popular brands. You will of course have to change all of them at the same time as some brands do not work with other brands.
