In areas, such as kitchens, where a degree of smoke and steam are normal and safe, a heat detector the perfect device for protecting you from unsafe rises in temperature. Like smoke detectors, they can give you valuable time to escape.
How do heat detectors work?
Heat detectors respond to changes in ambient temperature, rather than smoke. They can be triggered by two different events: if the ambient temperature rises above a predetermined threshold or if there is an unusual "rate of rise" (typically when the temperature rise exceeds 6.7° to 8.3°C per minute).
