Safety for Travellers: We all need this stuff even though we hope never to use it; reflective triangles, first aid kits, reflective vests or jackets, torches, tow ropes and jump leads are all essential backups for the prepared traveller. Some of these items are now obligatory in several countries - like the new requirement to carry a dayglo vest or two in Spain and Italy and of course the reflective triangle is required in most countries now - two are needed for some countries. A different kind of safety is involved in our latest product range but is becoming equally important to travellers so please do check out our new but already best selling gas alarms as below. The latest Kidde 7DCO Long-life Carbon Monoxide Alarm, right, with digital readout and peak level CO memory is also tested and approved for use in moving vehicles - the issue being a possibility that batteries could be shaken out of position on some other 'domestic' units. Our range now including a Voice alarm as below.
Kidde combined Smoke & CO Alarm with VOICE ALERTS. (BBC News report concerns and that Voice is much more effective for children and especially boys): 10 year warranty. The 10SCO combined carbon monoxide and optical smoke detector unit features the latest market leading technology combining two detection technologies in one space saving unit. Different voice warnings - for smoke 'FIRE! FIRE!' - and for CO 'WARNING! CARBON MONOXIDE'. Battery operated front opening compartment, Loud 85dB alarm, Dual voice warning, Hush button, CO level memory feature, End of life audio warning, Twin Kitemarks, CE marked. Apart from the obvious use in motorhomes it would be well worth adding at home - one of these long life units just by the entrance to each child's bedroom would be reassuring!
Fire Extinguishers: Vital equipment for everyone. 'ABC' 1Kg & 2Kg Powder sizes in highly respected extinguisher brands. Approved to BS EN3, refillable and lightweight with gauge and mounting bracket. Suitable for Type A Fires (carbonaceous or organic materials, such as wood, paper, fabric, etc.), Type B Fires (liquid fires, such as petrol, diesel, fats, paints, solvents, etc.) and also suitable for use on live electrical equipment up to 1000V. An essential accessory!
Reflective Vest: A high visibility vest made to Class 2 standard and complete with two extra-reflective stripes. In generous XL size this lightweight vest is ideal as a safety over-garment in all climates and more versatile than a hi-vis full jacket. The size really is generous - 130cm (51+") around that stripe area, ideal to slip quickly over existing clothing! Now a legal requirement in both Spain and Italy this product usefully comes with an explanatory leaflet in both languages as well as English. You may well need to carry a pair in case your passenger has to leave the vehicle too - anyone stepping out onto the highway must be wearing one on exit from the vehicle. Homologated European norm 89 / 686 / CEE (Class EN471). Buy Below >>>
Ring First Aid Kit: High quality, well priced First Aid Kit that contains the following items: Scissors, Conforming Bandage, Alcohol Prep Pad, Providone-iodine Prep Pad, Sterile Non Woven Gauze, Triangular Bandage, Tape, Plasters (2 sizes - 8 plasters), Bag. I'm ashamed to say I don't know what to do with some of them but always carry a kit in our motorhome - who knows it might be one of us being bandaged! Buy Below >>>
Trio Gas Alarms offer multi-protection at a lower price and lower battery drain than similar products. Detects LPG (both butane and propane) leaks, carbon monoxide from gas appliances and narcotic gases such as ether which may have been used in robberies to render victims drowsy or unconscious. Two versions are available the standard single self-contained unit for smaller motorhomes and caravans in black or ivory as pictured right and the modular Trio Pro for larger campers pictured left, both are 12v, the Pro is supplied with two remote sensors and approx 3m sensor cables, with a third sensor an optional extra. Both are simple to wire in, easy to use and very reliable. The multi-sensor system offers the advantage of being able to detect gases where they are likely to occur, e.g. lower down (<50cm typical) for LPG and mid height (>90cm typical) for CO and near sleeping areas for narcotic and/or where a separate bedroom is present. Only the main unit is connected to 12v but the individual sensors are hard wired back to that via supplied cables. When switched on the units are • Fully automatic • Self-diagnostic • Low energy when monitoring • Loud 90dB internal alarm. For peace of mind at all times, especially when you’re asleep, this is a great piece of equipment to have. • 12v nominal • Low stand-by at <50 mA/unit/sensor • Loud Alarm • Pro also has a 1.5A 'Open Collector Gate' function for connecting/triggering other devices and static/impulsive settings (use is optional).

Detecting Gases: Do note that the gases we're all interested in behave differently. Both Carbon monoxide and Narcotic gases are 'lighter than air', although not by much in the case of CO, and rise while LPG is 'heavier than air' and will definitely fall towards the floor unless the air is disturbed. Most of us worry more about the CO because it is colourless and odourless and deadly but there is some concern (and doubt) about narcotics too. Since both gases are light, any detector should be placed moderately high, preferably near gas appliances for the CO and/or near the bed for narcotics. In contrast LPG is heavy so any LPG detector should be placed low down; exactly where will depend on your gas plumbing. LPG has a smelly substance added to it so your nose is an excellent detector too. Fortunately modern gas installations are relatively safe with their enclosed and externally vented cupboards, hard plumbed gas lines, and fail-safe appliances.
you can see no single unit can possibly detect all these gases in their
different locations, even though the unit itself is theoretically
capable of doing so! The Trio Pro can use up to three sensors so
could deal with all those situations as could separate Trio units.
Matching Smoke and CO Alarms: Straightforward battery operated alarms, similar to the ones we use at home but one is a CO alarm - essential if you have gas appliances. Do remember to test them often! it is easy and quick but essential to know they are working and the long life battery is in good order. 150mm dia. Buy the set and save. Buy Below >>>
Emergency Kit: A very convenient package with tow rope, jump leads, latex gloves, reflective vest and tyre emergency aerosol all in a tough well presented storage and carrying case. As Illustrated right.
