Important information about smoke alarms – Queensland
All smoke alarms being installed in Queensland must meet Australian Standard 3786-2014. Therefore as this product meets Australian Standard 3786-1993, we do not sell this product into Queensland. An updated version of this product that meets this standard is our Photoelectric Smoke Alarm Twin Pack (FFPDCDP).
The Family First Photoelectric Smoke Alarm Twin Pack are two basic battery-operated smoke detectors, suitable for most areas of the house including bedrooms, living rooms and the garage. This twin pack is a good way to bolster protection at home in additional rooms such as the recommended installation of one in every bedroom.
The two alarms both have ‘test’ buttons for confidence that they are working through regular recommended testing. Tested to Australian Standard AS3786-1993, they offer you peace of mind along with a 10-year warranty.
The photoelectric smoke alarm type is superior technology for better protection compared to the older ionisation type. More sensitive to larger smoke particles, which are typically produced in greater amounts by smouldering fires that can smoulder for hours before bursting into flames, you can be notified sooner of incidents and benefit from less false alarms from cooking.
