As a homeowner, we understand that your No.1 priority is your family being safe and your home protected. From the 1st of January 2027 the Queensland legislation regarding fire safety will be upgraded for all existing homes, townhouses, units. It is in your best interest to understand the requirements of this change and act accordingly.
Requirements to comply with the legislation are below:
- Smoke alarms must be interconnected,
- Photoelectric; and
- Hardwired or a 10-year non removable battery
Must be installed on each storey:
- In every bedroom.
- In hallways that connect bedrooms and the rest of the dwelling.
- If there is no hallway, between the bedrooms; and
- If there are no bedrooms on a storey, at least one smoke alarm should be installed in the most likely path to exit the dwelling.
Due to the complexity and structure of various legislation requirements, it is recommended to have the professional and fully qualified electricians from S.A.M attend to ensure risk is effectively managed.
