Photoelectric Smoke Alarms

Photoelectric smoke alarms are important to ensure you and your family members are safe at home.

What is Photoelectric Smoke Alarm?

Smoke alarms with photoelectric technology help detect smouldering fires faster than other types of smoke alarms. This type of protection and safety is vital to have while you and your family members are sleeping.

While we sleep the sense of smell decreases, therefore it is important to have early warning signs of any type of fire or smoke to allow time to evacuate. This is also an important factor as majority of fires occur in households when most occupants are asleep.

Building Code of Australia

The Building Code of Australia instructs that all homes within Australia should have at least one smoke alarm installed. The Government Fire Departments and Industry Experts recommend that photoelectric smoke alarms should be the first choice for their superior performance in fire detection.

Environmental Factors

The Photoelectric smoke alarms are better for the environment as they don’t contain harsh radioactive material, which creates an easier method for disposal as these harsh chemicals are not being dumped into the environment. These alarms are also less of an annoyance when it comes to the smoke made from cooking.
