WARNING! ARE YOUR SMOKE ALARMS COMPLIANT WITH THE NEW GOVERNMENT LEGISLATION. FROM 1 JAN 2022 ALL PROPERTIES MUST FOLLOW THE NEW RULES
Are You up to Date for the
2022 QLD Smoke Alarm Legislation Change
According to Macquarie University, more Australians die in residential fires than natural hazards. It is estimated that over 50% of Australians die every year due to house fires.
That’s why new smoke alarm legislation in Queensland has been implemented since January 1, 2017, requiring homeowners to install interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms throughout their residential property.
The new legislation says that any existing smoke alarms manufactured over ten years ago require an immediate replacement.
Those with hardwired smoke alarms must be replaced with a photoelectric smoke alarm as well.
A penalty will apply to those who fail to comply.
When searching for electricians Brisbane, there is no need to look further than Smoke Electricians. Our smoke alarms and installations are compliant with the existing policies and regulations in Queensland.
We pride ourselves on a team of experienced and certified professionals that can get the job done right the first time while taking the client’s safety and peace of mind to another level.
The Importance of New Smoke Alarms
The risk of dying in a house fire is reduced by half with smoke alarms, and even more with interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms. However, the alarm must work properly, be correctly installed, and be maintained. Smoke Alarm Electricians Brisbane offer specialist services in smoke alarm installation, testing and maintenance. They also provide hardwired interconnected upgrades that will ensure your home is as safe as possible in the event of a house fire.
Photoelectric Smoke Alarms
Don’t worry about your Queensland smoke alarm installation for the next 10 years. The new smoke alarms must be fitted with a photoelectric 10 year lithium battery as per the smoke alarm legislation set by the Queensland Government. Smoke alarms installed before the new legislations must be compliant in rentals, new builds and renovations. These interconnected smoke alarms will all sound if one senses fire. At least one smoke alarm in every bedroom is required, as well as both ends of the hallway, and outside the bedrooms.
10 Year Battery
Having a 10 year battery gives you the confidence and peace of mind that your smoke alarms are going to work when you need them most.
Say bye to such a trouble and concern with brand new legislation compliant smoke alarms. These sturdy built lithium batteries last for 10 years.
In the leadup to the new changes to smoke alarm laws, every household must have interconnected alarms.
This change has been shown in studies as greatly increasing people’s chances for surviving a house fire since all alarms will sound if one senses danger and it cannot be silenced by simply opening windows or doors.
Impact-Resistance and Durability
Not everyone has enough cash on hand to buy a new fire detecting device these days – aside from having some kind of battery power, what else should one consider when choosing between alarm systems?
Some may not know this yet but there is also another type: The Photoelectric Smoke Alarm which boasts both durability (thanks to its sturdy construction) and efficiency (due largely in part because it consumes less electricity).

Alex came around, quoted me on the spot and installed straight away. I was very impressed by his knowledge, he really knows what he is talking. He took the time to explain how it works. I will be calling him again for any future electricial needs.
I first used Alex when I had issues with my NBN connection. After 6 months of dealing with Optus and the NBN he came and fixed it within 3 hours. Later that week our NBN was connected. Since then I have had him install smoke alarms in my investment property and he did a superb job.
