Smoke Alarms Brisbane: Types of Alarms

There are two types of smoke alarms commonly used in residential and commercial projects, but new smoke alarm legislation states that only one can be used. If you’re not sure which type of alarm installed in your home, you can contact our electrical services Brisbane team to arrange a testing and inspection.

Ionisation Smoke Alarms

Ionisation smoke alarms don’t go off when there is a small amount of smoke, such as the smoke emitted from burnt toast or from overcooking a roast. Instead, these alarms would only go off if there’s a smouldering fire that’s on the verge of burning out of control, such as a cigarette on an upholstered chair which has nearly burnt through and is releasing a lot of smoke very slowly.

Though this may seem preferable, especially for apartment complexes, a smouldering fire can completely get out of hand within minutes. This is why the Queensland Government smoke alarm legislation states that all dwellings must contain photoelectric alarms, as early detection is key to reducing property damage and survival. If your home or commercial building is fitted with ionisation smoke alarms, you must upgrade to photoelectric smoke alarms for safety. If you’re unsure if your home contains ionisation smoke alarms, you can call our Smoke alarm testing Brisbane experts on (07) 3343 4066 to arrange an inspection.

Photoelectric Smoke Alarms

The photoelectric smoke alarm is widely regarded as the best smoke detection technology available and is used by most major fire safety authorities. Consumer product safety has highlighted the benefits of photoelectric smoke alarms for sight-impaired or blind people. The latest AUS standard mandates that all new residential homes have at least one photoelectric smoke alarm installed on each level to help detect fires early before they spread. This is because photoelectric smoke alarms can detect smaller particles by using a light source and sensing chamber that triggers an alarm when the particles are reflected. If you’d like to upgrade to photoelectric smoke alarms, be sure to get in touch with our smoke alarm installations Brisbane team as soon as possible.
