Why Choose Us?
SMOKE ALARMS ARE MANDATORY IN ALL NSW RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES
Under the NSW Residential Tenancies Act 2010, Landlords must ensure that smoke alarms are installed and maintained in the residential premises in accordance with the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation (Smoke Alarms). Penalties and fines apply for non-compliance.
PROPERTY MANAGERS DO NOT SERVICE OR MAINTAIN SMOKE ALARMS
It is the landlords’ responsibility to ensure that their property is compliant with current legislation. By enlisting the services of SYDNEY SMOKE ALARMS we will ensure that your property is compliant.
SMOKE ALARMS MUST BE LOCATED CORRECTLY
The Building Code of Australia states where alarms must be installed. The type, number and location of alarms depend on the age, size and layout of each property. We only use trained professionals to ensure your property is compliant with regulations.
SMOKE ALARMS MUST BE REPLACED EVERY 10 YEARS
Under Australian Standard AS3786, all smoke alarms have a lifespan of around 10 years and must be replaced when expired. As part of our annual service we will test and replace all batteries and alarms where required.
WE ONLY USE PHOTOELECTRIC SMOKE ALARMS
Research has shown that Photo Electric smoke alarms are more effective than Ionisation smoke alarms across a wider range of fires in the home. FRNSW recommends using Photo Electric smoke alarms.
CORDED BLIND HAZARD
Children can become entangled while playing with, or around, a blind or curtain cord if not secured and installed correctly. The ACCC is aware of 16 child deaths from 1999 to 2013 due to strangulation from window cords. This has prompted the need for a new mandatory standard. This standard is in place to reduce the number of deaths and injuries to children from corded curtains and blinds. We will ensure that all window coverings are in line with this new standard.
REDUCE YOUR RISK
A non-compliant property can compromise building insurance and attract fines. SYDNEY SMOKE ALARMS will issue compliance certificates once our service is completed.
