noCO components: Void alarm, control unit and room alarm are available as individual items, offering solutions for different installations

Only 20% of UK homes have CO alarms

Each year, dozens of people die or are injured as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning, but these incidents are avoidable if appliances are regularly checked by registered engineers and working CO alarms located correctly to warn occupants of the gas’ presence before it reaches dangerous levels.

However, only around 20% of UK homes have CO alarms, leaving the vast majority unprotected.

The latest addition to Sprue Safety Products’ expanding range of home safety solutions will offer an added level of protection against potentially lethal carbon monoxide (CO).

Compatible with any boiler make or model, the noCO system comprises a mains powered control unit with sealed-for-life battery-powered carbon monoxide alarms, which are all connected wirelessly.

Up to 50 noCO alarms can connect to control unit

Even if the source of the detected CO leak is from another appliance, the control unit will still switch off the boiler, so all appliances should be checked and serviced before declaring safe.

  • noCO is also a void monitoring safety shut-off system (COSSVM)
  • constantly checks for CO in flue voids when using its void sensor
  • Gas Safe approved system
  • fully complies with the Preferred Industry Options detailed in Part I of the Technical Bulletin TB0081 Edition 3

Designed to fit inside a void containing a flue, the noCO sensor constantly monitors the environment for CO. If carbon monoxide is detected, it will send a signal to the control unit to automatically shut down the entire boiler system and set off an audible in-room alarm to alert occupants.

Each noCO component is available separately

  • enables system to be configured to suit the individual need of each property

In the event of a carbon monoxide leak, the system can only be reset by a Gas Safe registered engineer, once inspection has eliminated any further risk to inhabitants.
