Did you know about 30% of the homes we visit have faulty smoke alarms? We find that pretty scary.
We’re very passionate at Safe & Sure about smoke alarms, that’s why we put the ‘safe’ in our name. We can supply and install a Photoelectric Smoke Alarm so you and your family can sleep soundly. As the sense of smell isn’t active during sleep, it’s often the case that victims of a fire are overcome shortly after waking, by fumes and toxic smoke. Lives saved from a house fire are more often than not the product of a working fire alarm.
Photoelectric smoke alarms can be hard-wired into your home, they can also be ‘inter-connecting’ so all the alarms sound when one is activated.
Queensland Fire and Emergency Service recommend all homes are fitted with photoelectric smoke alarms because they:
- give earlier warnings for smouldering fires, which are one of the most common types of domestic fires, than other types of smoke alarms
- provide the best detection across a range of fires
- are less likely to emit nuisance or false alarms
- do not contain radioactive material.
