Smoke detectors supply, installation and testing

smoke detector 1

Your home or business smoke detectors are important to the safety of your family, employees and customers.

Proper maintenance of your smoke detectors could be a life saver.

Since 1997, all new or substantially renovated buildings are required to have smoke detectors installed and wired to mains power. Fire Services recommend that you replace your smoke alarm (both battery powered and 240v hard-wired types) after ten years as it may start to fail after this period. A year of manufacture date is displayed on all smoke alarms. Improper maintenance of smoke detectors can lead to reduced effectivness and performance.

According to the Country Fire Authority, if you don’t have a working smoke alarm installed and a fire occurs, you are:

  • 57% more likely to suffer property loss and damage
  • 26% more likely to suffer serious injuries
  • Four times more likely to die.

All fire services in Australia recommend the installation of photoelectric smoke alarms that meet Australian Standards (AS3786) when installing or replacing existing smoke alarms.

When planning a renovation or a new building project, ensure you provide adequate smoke detectors and plan for reqular maintenance.

As part of our regular maintenance servies, we check expiry dates and test units to ensure continued functionality. We also keep maintenance records and will advise in advance if units need replacing, upon which we can replace outdated or faulty units as needed. We always maintain them to comply with the highest safety standards, and all hard wired smoke detectors are professionally installed by our licenced technicians, as required by law.
