Making your home compliant with Queensland smoke alarm legislation
Queenslanders are being encouraged to begin taking steps toward making their homes compliant with new smoke alarm legislation. The legislation, which aims to make homes in Queensland the safest in Australia, has been applied to new and substantially renovated dwellings since 1 January 2017. The new laws are designed to give Queenslanders the best chance to escape house fires through a better warning system.
The next phase of the staged 10-year rollout for the installation of interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms will apply to all homes leased (rented) and sold from 1 January 2022. This new legislation means all Queensland dwellings will be required to have interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms in all bedrooms, hallways that connect bedrooms with the rest of the home and on every level of the dwelling. This will apply to all dwellings from 1 January 2027.
Any new smoke alarms installed in an existing dwelling must meet the new requirements now. If you are looking to install or replace smoke alarms make sure you book with RACQ Trade Assist to get the job done when it is safe to do so. For a limited time, we have three different member only offers available to suit your installation needs. Ensuring that your home is safe and compliant with Queensland smoke alarm legislation with quality smoke alarm units is as easy as choosing the offer that best suits you and enquiring below to start the booking process.
