Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a tasteless, odourless gas that can be fatal in very small amounts; even 100 part per million of CO gas in the air you breath can cause dizziness, headaches and nausea. What's more, CO gas can be created by faulty gas appliances, or a fire in a partially blocked chimney.
Carbon monoxide is hazardous because human beings simply can't detect it until it is too late. Human breathing is stimulated by the amount of carbon dioxide in our bloodstream, not the amount of oxygen in the air. Carbon monoxide drastically reduces the ability of our blood to absorb oxygen.
Luckily, modern carbon monoxide detectors are extremely sensitive, and will give a very loud warning to you, your staff and your family long before any CO buildup reaches potentially dangerous levels.
