Queensland smoke alarm laws

Smoke Alarm Laws are Changing

On January 1 2022, Queensland rolled out the next phase of its updated smoke alarm laws. All new and renovated homes, as well as homes being rented or sold, now need an interconnected photoelectric smoke alarm system. Homes affected by the current legislation include:

  • New homes
  • Substantially renovated homes
  • Any home being sold
  • Any home being leased
  • Any home where an existing lease is renewed

The updated regulations state that homes must have interconnected smoke alarms installed in the following areas:

  • At least one smoke alarm per storey
  • All bedrooms and sleeping areas
  • Hallways connecting bedrooms to the rest of the house, or
  • If there is no hallway, between the bedrooms and other parts of the storey

All new and existing dwellings will need to comply with these regulations from January 1 2027. But don’t wait – if your alarms are old, or if you’re unsure if they comply, get in touch with Martel Electrical and book your smoke alarm installation or check today.

Photoelectric smoke alarms

Photoelectric Smoke Alarm Installation

Queensland’s new legislation requires homeowners to install interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms. Photoelectric smoke alarms use light to detect the presence of smoke in a room. This type of alarm is more responsive to fires, and they’re less prone to false alarms, such as when cooking.

Martel Electrical supplies photoelectric smoke alarm systems from Australia’s leading manufacturers.

Our range includes:

  • Wired or wirelessly interconnected alarms
  • Mains-powered alarms
  • Battery-powered alarms with 10-year lithium batteries

Interconnected smoke detectors are designed so that all alarms will sound in the event of a fire. That ensures you have plenty of warning to leave the home and keep your family safe.
