QLD Smoke Alarm Legislation Changes
Queensland legislation changes have been put into place for your safety and the safety of your family. They require that all substantially renovated residences and new properties that have been approved after 01 January 2017 must have an interconnected, photoelectric smoke alarm system installed. We understand these legislative changes and can provide you with everything that you need. Check how the legislation affects you here.
New legislation requires that smoke alarms must be:
- In every bedroom
- On each storey
- Located in hallways that connect bedrooms to the rest of the home
- Positioned between bedrooms if no hallway is present
- Located in the most likely path of travel if no bedrooms are on the storey
- Hardwired or contain a 10-year non-removable lithium battery
- Interconnected with the rest of the alarms in the home
Photoelectric Smoke Alarms
The legislation changes state that every alarm that is replaced or installed on or after 01 January 2017 must be photoelectric.
So, what is a photoelectric smoke alarm? This type of alarm can give earlier warning signs. They can detect visible particles. They are the earliest type of warning system that can detect smouldering fires.
Why Do Smoke Alarms Have to Be Interconnected?
Having smoke alarms interconnected increases the chance that your family will be able to escape unharmed. If one smoke alarm goes off they will all be triggered. This allows people on the opposite side of the home, from the origination point, to be warned before the fire gets too close to them blocking their escape route.
Why do Smoke Alarms need a Battery Back-Up or Have to Be Hardwired?
Having your smoke alarm hardwired or having a battery backup means that they will always work. A battery can die at any time and if a fire happens it will not be activated. Hardwired alarms are run by electricity and if the electricity happens to be out the battery back-up will kick in and sound the alarm.
