What Are the Changes?

The new legislation requires all Queensland dwellings to install photoelectric smoke alarms in all bedrooms and in hallways that connect bedrooms with the rest of the dwelling.

What is a Photoelectric Smoke Alarm?

Photoelectric smoke alarms are also known as optical or photo-optical. The alarms have the capability to detect visible particles of combustion.

Research has found that photoelectric alarms respond quicker than the current smoke alarms and they are less likely to create a false alarm.

Why Are the Changes Occurring?

Photoelectric smoke alarms are becoming compliant to address the danger of fires occurring whilst people are sleeping in their homes. When people are sleeping, their sense of smell also sleeps.

Photoelectric smoke alarms will detect the smoke in its early stages allowing you to exit your property safely.

We set a high standard for communication and put a strong focus on innovation.
