FireAngel, one of Europe’s leading developers and suppliers of home safety products, has signed an agreement to supply mains and battery-powered smoke and heat alarms to another housing association.
The Coventry-based company will supply West of Scotland Housing Association (“WSHA”) with a combination of interlinked mains and battery-powered products to around 3,500 homes.
This contract win follows the requirement for greater safety standards introduced in the Housing (Scotland) Act, which came into force on 1 February 2019. This requires all homes to have a smoke alarm fitted in the living room or lounge and in circulation spaces such as hallways, landings and kitchens and all fitted alarms are required to be interlinked so they can be heard throughout the property. Homes are also required to have a carbon monoxide alarm fitted wherever there are fixed combustion appliances.
Neil Smith, Group Chief Executive of FireAngel, said: “Further to the implementation of the recent new legislation in Scotland, we are delighted to have signed another housing association. This follows our recent agreements signed with Queens Cross Housing Association, River Clyde Homes and Caledonia Housing Association and demonstrates the demand for FireAngel’s compliant and interlinked products.”
For the year ended 31 December 2018, sales were expected to be approximately £37.6 million. The company has said that 2018 was a year of significant disruption and distraction. The company has been transitionin into an independent technology-led business in order to deliver connected solutions that complement its core product range with an extended ‘connected home’ product set.
FireAngel is one of the market leaders in the European home safety products market and launched its own connected homes product proposition at the end of 2016.
FireAngel’s principal products are smoke alarms, CO alarms and accessories. The Company has an extensive portfolio of patented intellectual property in Europe, the US and other selected territories. Products are sold under FireAngel’s leading brands of FireAngel, FireAngel Pro, AngelEye and FireAngel Connect.
