    Interlinked or not inside flat

    Hi Im putting in a grade D fire alarm in a small 1 bed flat, is there any guidance on when kitchen heat sensors and wireless interlinking to the smoke alarm in the hallway is required?

    when are interlinked alarms for grade D required?

    You need to look at BS 5839: part 6.

    Personally, I put in mains powered interlinked alarms in all the bedrooms, hallways and kitchen. I also interlink the CO detectors in any room with gas appliances.

    Ok thanks. Just seemed a bit OTT in a small flat to interlink them

    If not required still a good idea. We had mains interlinked detectors in kitchens, common areas and bedrooms in an HMO, more than required but future proofing as far as we are concerned. The initial expense is nothing compared with retrofit costs. It wold seem that wireless is now acceptable as 10 year batteries are acceptable.
