Smoke Alarm Pricing (Supply & Install Incl GST)
OUR POINT OF DIFFERENCE
QLD Smoke Alarm Changes (Staged Approach)
Interconnected Smoke Alarms:
When one smoke alarm is activated, all interconnected smoke alarms are activated. This means that the time occupants have to escape is increased.
Photoelectric Smoke Alarms:
Research by the Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council indicates that photoelectric smoke alarms provide the best detection across a wider range of fires and are more likely to alert occupants in time to escape safely.
Prescribed locations for installing smoke alarms
Where practicable smoke alarms must be placed on the ceiling.
Smoke alarms must not be placed:
» within 300mm of a corner of a ceiling and a wall;
» within 300mm of a light fitting;
» within 400mm of an air-conditioning vent;
» within 400mm of the blades of a ceiling fan.
There are special requirements for stairwells, sloping ceilings, and ceilings with exposed beams. Specific requirements are explained in the Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008.
If it is impracticable for the prescribed location requirements to be met, the owner may put the alarm at another location that will provide a warning to occupants of the dwelling. For example, a smoke alarm that is regularly activated by steam from a bathroom or smoke from fumes from a kitchen may be moved to another appropriate location.
From 1 January 2027
Smoke alarms in all dwellings must:
» be photoelectric (AS 3786-2014); and
» not also contain an ionisation sensor; and
» be less than 10 years old; and
» operate when tested; and
» be interconnected with every other required smoke alarm in the dwelling so all activate together.
Smoke alarms must be installed on each storey:
» in each bedroom; and
» in hallways which connect bedrooms and the rest of the dwelling; or
» if there is no hallway, between the bedrooms and other parts of the storey; and
» if there are no bedrooms on a storey at least one smoke alarm must be installed in the most likely path of travel to exit the dwelling.
Smoke alarms must be either hardwired or powered by a non-removable ten year battery.
