To prevent any risk of fire accident at his home, it is strongly recommended to learn about all the possible ways for security and tranquility.

What are the principles of fire safety?

There are various principles underlying the regulation in terms of prevention against domestic fires. Firstly, the aim is to avoid any outbreak of fire. Generally, these are the result of a dangerous electrical system. A short-circuit may in some cases cause a major fire. A small flame can quickly turn into a major fire. Thus, we must develop his house so it does not allow the fire to find something to eat. Some thermal insulation, such as polystyrene can be dangerous if they do not meet the safety standards in force. Finally, it is particularly important that all parts of the housing can have an output accessible in case of fire. Thus, all parts must be able to escape individually for.


The DAAF ionization

This type of detector is equipped with two electrodes located in a room where a radioactive compound that emits alpha rays. Through ionization of air contained in said chamber, a current is generated by applying a voltage to the two electrodes. Thus, it is the decrease in the intensity of the electric current due to the uptake of alpha-rays by the two electrodes from the presence of smoke trigger the siren. The use of radioactive material prohibited this type of detector in private homes in France.

The benefits of installing a DAAF

In recent years when DAAF began to be installed, they can save each year nearly 500 people and significantly reduce cases of burns when a home fire trigger. Thus, while two-thirds of the deaths were caused by fires at night, it is now 50% of victims who are saved by this simple and useful equipment. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to provide its housing a DAAF because a fire can occur anywhere and at any time without one can expect. The DAAF is one of the most easy to install and more effective to protect his life and his family’s means.
