Non mechanical Fixing of smoke alarms
« on: July 13, 2019, 09:36:20 AM »
I know Brigades like Cheshire have used "No Nails" type adhesive for fixing alarms, for some time.

Have others experience of self adhesive tab fixing too?

Going back a number of years my old brigade used no more nails but found that they usually fell off before the adhesive set. Plan B was that double sided tape was used to hold it whilst the adhesive set.

This worked, but occasionally detectors were faulty and needed replacing. Unfortunately the detectors could not be removed without damaging the ceiling.
