LPS 1282 Issue 1.1 Requirements and testing procedures for combined domestic smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
This standard specifies requirements and testing procedures for the LPCB certification and listing of combined domestic smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors, for use in domestic premises.
This standard is only applicable to combined domestic smoke and CO detectors in which the signals from the smoke and CO sensors act independently to give an alarm signal. For combined domestic smoke and carbon monoxide detectors using enhancement (whereby the signal from one sensor enhances the response of the other) this standard should only be used for guidance.
Combined domestic smoke and carbon monoxide detectors with special characteristics and developed for specific risks are not covered by this standard.
For the purposes of this standard, the definitions given in BS EN 14604: 2005 and EN 50291: 2001 apply.
- The detector shall meet all the requirements of all the relevant clauses that are specified in BS EN 14604: 2005 with the additional requirement that the fault indicator, as detailed in 4.3 Mains-on indicator shall only be yellow.
- The detector shall meet all the requirements of all the relevant clauses that are specified in EN 50291: 2001, with the exception of the following clauses:
- 6.2 Labelling (part c)- the apparatus shall, instead, be labelled with the number of this LPS standard
- 3.17 Degree of protection- the apparatus is not required to meet clause 14 (Tests for protection against water…) of EN 60529: 1991.
- The installation instructions shall illustrate the recommended locations of the detectors within domestic premises. The detector shall not be recommended for installation in areas where water ingress is likely to penetrate the housing of the detector e.g. bathroom or kitchen.
Smoke alarm devices.
Electrical apparatus for the detection of carbon monoxide in domestic premises. Degrees of protection provided by enclosures (IP code).
