FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


A stove guard comes in two parts: one part which monitors the hob, and one part which is either hidden behind the stove or installed in the fuse box. If the monitor unit detects a risk of fire on the hob, the stove guard emits a warning. If no one reacts to the alarm, it turns off the power to the stove.

When you fit an approved stove guard and use it correctly, you significantly reduce the risk of fire.

There are different types of stove guard on the market, and the quality of older stove guards tends to vary a great deal. The new European standard, EN 50615, aims to ensure that stove guards react to situations that could lead to a fire, while not giving false alarms and cutting off the electricity unnecessarily. If you buy a new stove guard, it’s important to make sure that it complies with this standard.
