Smoke Alarm Installations Gold Coast

According to the Queensland Fire Service, three-quarters of all fatalities in house fires occur in houses without smoke alarms. Most of the fatalities occurred while people were sleeping, as you lose your sense of smell while you are sleeping.

Installing a smoke alarm in your Gold Coast home gives your family precious minutes to get out of the house in case of a fire. The alarms can either be hard-wired and interconnected via 240v cables, wireless smoke alarms, or a combination of both.

Compared with ionisation smoke alarms, photoelectric smoke alarms detect smouldering fires much faster. However, if the smoke alarm remains unmaintained or if its batteries are removed, it won’t alert you to a potential fire.

It is advised that smoke alarm batteries need to be replaced every 12 months, and must be cleaned on a regular basis.

You don’t realise how much you depend on emergency systems and alarms until it’s too late, so we encourages you to take preventative measures to ensure your safety.

What type of Gold Coast smoke alarm should I look at getting installed?

In general, Gold Coast smoke detectors should be replaced every ten years, and any noticeable lag in performance should be addressed immediately.

Nowadays, people are advised to invest in photoelectric smoke alarms that can detect smoke before a fire starts. Before the fire escalates, this system enables a faster and smoother evacuation. During the initial detection stage, the air is still safe to breathe.

Smoke alarms that detect smoke from flames are ionisation smoke alarms, which are outdated and do not detect smoke from flames. It means that fire has already broken out, limiting the chances of escape. Longer burning fires produce more smoke, affecting visibility and the air quality in general.
