Home Fire Alarm Devices (HFAD)

Home / Heat and Smoke Detectors / Home Fire Alarm Devices (HFAD)

Home Fire Alarm Devices (HFAD) are your residential smoke or heat alarms. HFAD installation in all new residential household will be mandatory from June 2018 .

HFAD serve as an early warning system in the event of a fire incident. The smoke and heat caused by the flames will trigger the alarm and alert the household. With early detection by HFAD, residents could proceed to put out the small flames or evacuate if fire is too large to be put out.

Recommended Fire Safety Items along with HFAD: Fire Extinguishers and Fire Blanket

According to the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), HFAD are require to be compliant with either European, Australian or American standards for fire alarms – EN 14604, AS 3786 and UL 217.

HFAD are generally powered by 10-year battery HFAD but there also also versions with replaceable dry-cell batteries HFAD that generally lasts a year.

Photoelectric or Optical Smoke Alarms are generally use for HFAD. This is because Optical Smoke Alarms are fast in detecting smoke from burning fabric and furniture. Once the smoke enters the HFAD chamber, smoke will cause the light beam to deflect and hit the photo cell causing the HFAD to be activated and alerting the household.

In order to effectively place the HFAD and maximize coverage, for single storey home, the HFAD should be installed in center of the living room.

For multi-storey homes, each floor will need at least one HFAD.

If the combined living and dining room area more than 70 sq m, it will require at least two HFAD to be installed.
