Smoke Alarm Legislation QLD
Did you know that there is now new legislation put into place regarding smoke alarm compliance and installations?
The new legislation specifies that all Queensland dwellings will be required to have interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms in all bedrooms, in hallways that connect bedrooms with the rest of the dwelling and on every level by 2027.
If your property’s smoke alarm needs replacing, you are now required by law to replace the existing alarm with a photoelectric-type alarm. If you’re a renter, it is the landlords responsibility to ensure the smoke alarms comply with this new regulation. Read more about the legislation.
This new legislation comes as an effort to reduce the number of fire related fatalities in the home as smoke alarms are the best way to alert you to the danger of smoke inhalation quickly while you sleep.
What is a photoelectric smoke alarm?
A photoelectric alarm detects visible particles of combustion, and will pick up smouldering fires and dense smoke. This type of alarm is currently deemed the most effective type of smoke alarm in picking up fires in the home.
