Smoke Alarms

Landlords are required to have working smoke alarms installed and maintained to BCA and Australian standards.

Failure to protect the safety of your tenants and investment property with a working and regularly maintained smoke alarm may result in the dismissal of an insurance claim for damage, loss of life or personal injury, or even a $500 penalty for simply failing to comply. Why take the risk?

Beachside Property Management will help you protect your tenants and your investment by arranging for a qualified technician to:

  • Ensure all alarms meet Australian Standard 3786-1993
  • Ensure all alarms satisfy the requirements of the building code of Australia in regard to placement and position
  • Ensure all alarms are not past their expiry date
  • Remove and test the battery to ensure more than 80% charge and replace when required
  • Test audible output of the alarm to ensure no less than 75 (DBA)
  • Thoroughly clean the alarms and spray them with compressed air
  • Relocate alarms from the ceiling to correct positions when required to save the you the cost of a new alarm
  • Replace any faulty or expired alarms to ensure your property is compliant
  • Provide a detailed compliance certificate detailing all smoke alarms at the property, their expiry date, type of alarm, and position…that’s the Beachside difference
