New Smoke Alarm Legislation

The new requirements state that for all properties rented or leased:

  • Smoke alarms must be installed in every bedroom of a home, every hallway connecting bedrooms
  • If there are no bedrooms on a level, at least one smoke alarm should be installed in the most likely path of travel to exit the dwelling
  • All smoke alarms must be powered by either 240 volt or 10 year lithium battery
  • All smoke alarms must be interconnected to each other
  • All smoke alarms must be photoelectric
  • All smoke alarms must comply with AS3786:2014

In excess of 500,000 properties will need to be upgraded prior to Jan 1 2022.  Inevitably there will be a significant last-minute rush to meet the new compliance requirements.  Why not consider getting ahead of the pack and consider your options today?  Do not risk non-compliance. Contact our friendly team for a solution for the upgrade of your property.

Futher information:

Interconnected Smoke Alarms

Interconnected smoke alarms communicate with each other. When one alarm is triggered, all of the other alarms will also be triggered. This produces a more effective warning through the premises in the event of an alarm event. Alarms can be connected by wire or wirelessly. Talk to our team to find out more about how many alarms and the best type of alarms to use in your premises.

Photoelectric Smoke Alarms

When replacing smoke alarms, they must be of a photoelectric type which complies with Australian Standard (AS) 3786-2014. Photoelectric smoke alarms, also known as optical or photo-optical, detect visible particles of combustion. They respond to a wide range of fires, but are particularly responsive to smouldering fires and the dense smoke given off by foam-filled furnishings or overheated PVC wiring. Source: QFES
