👉We Are Chermsides Own Specialist In Smoke Alarm Installations.

Why? Because we believe it is one of the best ways we can safeguard our community's housing and businesses against fires and save their lives.

The new legislation specifies that all Queensland dwellings will be required to have interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms in all bedrooms, in hallways that connect bedrooms with the rest of the dwelling and on every level.

A 10 year rollout of interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms in Queensland will happen over three specific periods starting from 1 January 2017.

What does this mean for your home?

To comply with legislation, interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms are required:

  • From 1 January 2017: in all new dwellings and substantially renovated dwellings (this applies to building applications submitted from 1 January 2017).

  • From 1 January 2022: in all domestic dwellings leased and sold.

  • From 1 January 2027: in all other domestic dwellings.
