The positioning of smoke alarm installation should be highly considered by Adelaide residents. This is because most home fire deaths happen between 11 PM to 7 PM. During these hours, everyone is sleeping and the likelihood of suffocating before even attempting to escape is high.
Typically, smoke alarms should be installed inside each sleeping area, outside the bedroom door, and on every storey of the house, which includes the basement. Moreover, wall-mounted smoke alarms’ suggested installation is four to 12 inches from the ceiling, while ceiling-mounted models should be at least four inches away from the nearest wall. If you’re unsure of what to choose, our experts can assist you and answer all your questions.

A sleeping person is unable to smell smoke and therefore cannot detect a fire. Smoke alarms are an essential early warning system that help save lives by waking occupants and alerting them to the dangers of fire and smoke.Building regulations state that every existing home must install a working smoke alarm by February 1999. New homes must have smoke alarms installed prior to occupancy.
Smoke alarms are inexpensive and can be easily installed.
Be sure to purchase smoke alarms that meet Australian Standards.For minimum protection, install a smoke alarm outside each bedroom or sleeping area in your home. If you live in a house with more than one level, install a smoke alarm on each level. It is preferred that smoke alarms be interconnected.
Some types of smoke alarms can be interconnected to each other, so that if one alarm sounds the other alarms are also activated.Houses with a children’s wing need interconnected alarms linking to an alarm near an adult’s bedroom. Studies have shown that 85 percent of sleeping children do not wake to the sound of a smoke alarm.
A smoke alarm that’s not working is useless and provides a false sense of security.
Proper smoke alarm installation in Adelaide requires consistent maintenance. By maintaining your smoke detectors, you can be sure that they will work when you need them to. If you’re unfamiliar with the process, you can follow these steps:
1. After installation, test your smoke alarms immediately while everyone is in the house. This way, you can devise an evacuation plan and designate meeting points.
2. While some smoke alarms are self-testing, you should manually run a smoke detector.
3. If you have non-hard wired alarms, don’t wait until your battery runs out of power but instead, set annual battery replacements to ensure they remain functional throughout the year.
4. Dirt build-up can affect your alarm’s performance, so you have to make sure they’re clean. You can start by occasionally dusting them with a dry rag or feather duster.
