Title Electrical apparatus for the detection of carbon monoxide in domestic premises, caravans and boats - Guide on the selection, installation, use and maintenance
Project Number 22969
Abstract/Scope This guide provides information on the selection, installation, use and maintenance of apparatus for the detection of carbon monoxide, intended for continuous operation in a fixed installation in domestic premises, caravans and boats. It is the intent of this guide to cover any type of domestic or residential accommodation, including leisure accommodation vehicles such as touring and static caravans, and motor homes; and recreational craft such as canal barges. It should be read in conjunction with EN 50291-1 and EN 50291-2 together with any additional relevant national or local regulations. The guide refers to the installation of two types of apparatus: Type A apparatus - to provide a visual and audible alarm and an executive action in the form of an output signal that can be used to actuate directly or indirectly a ventilation or other ancillary device. Type B apparatus - to provide a visual and audible alarm only. This guide excludes apparatus: • for the detection of combustible gases (see EN 50244); • for industrial installations or commercial premises.
