In Australia it’s common to find a BBQ in many backyards. Nothing beats the taste, but it is important to ensure consideration goes into keeping your home safe.

  • Never use gas cylinders indoors or in confined spaces
  • Ensure the hose connection and hose are on tight with no leaks (never test for a leak with a flame – use soapy water instead)
  • Dispose of out dated or empty gas cylinders safely
  • Keep BBQs clean to reduce fire hazards especially from left over fat and grease
  • An adult should be in charge of a lit BBQ at all times
  • Make sure you turn your BBQ off properly after use – never leave it turned on while unattended

The SATS team

Please take a moment to view this video as SATS talks Queensland legislation with Real Estate Dynamics.

What are the new laws?

The new laws mandate the installation of photoelectric, interconnected smoke alarms.

Smoke alarms in the dwelling must:

  • be photoelectric (AS3786:2014)
  • not also contain an ionisation sensor
  • be less than 10 years old
  • operate when tested
  • be interconnected with every other smoke alarm in the dwelling so they all activate together
  • be installed on each storey
  • in each bedroom
  • in hallways which connect bedrooms and the rest of the dwelling or if there is no hallway, between the bedrooms and other parts of the storey
  • if there are no bedrooms on a storey at least one smoke alarm must be installed in the most likely path of travel to exit the dwelling

Smoke alarms must be hardwired or powered by a non-removable 10-year battery.

What does this mean for Home Owners

  • All houses leased or sold will need to comply with the new standards from 1 January 2022
  • All owner-occupied private dwellings will need to comply with the new standards by 1 January 2027
  • From 1 January 2017, all houses being built or significantly renovated will need to comply with the new smoke alarm legislation upon completion

How will SATS make your property compliant?

  • By installing quality photoelectric smoke alarms in all areas required to ensure compliance
  • By using a combination of the latest RF technology and cable to interconnect all alarms in the dwelling so that they all activate together
  • SATS provides an extended 10 year warranty on product and installation for all alarms installed by SATS and continuously serviced by SATS

Payment Options

SATS have partnered with Principal Finance (Easy Bond Pay) to provide Landlords with an easy payment option debited monthly from a nominated account or credit card. All quotes are provided with a monthly payment option and link to setup monthly payments. Talk to us about making this option available for your agency.

It is true! All smoke alarms 9volt and 240volt hard wired alarms must have an expiry date to meet Australian standards. Depending on make and model this is sometimes noted as a manufacture date, and expiry date or a manufacture code. We carry this information for all 96 approved smoke alarms in Australia. NB. Smoke alarms must be replaced once they exceed their service life. Failure to do so may result in an alarm not working in a fire situation or an insurance claim being declined.
