NOTE 2 Although not covered by this part of BS 5446, equipment is available for use with multi-sensor fire alarms to provide a suitable warning system for use by deaf and hard of hearing people (see BS 5446‑3). NOTE 3 This part of BS 5446 does not cover the requirements for devices intended for incorporation in fire detection and alarm systems (see BS EN 54‑1). NOTE 4 This part of BS 5446 does not include detection of carbon monoxide as a toxic gas (see BS EN 50291‑1).
