Communal Smoke Alarm Testing and Maintenance

Don’t get caught out unaware. Assure your communal smoke alarms work!
Communal smoke alarms are the equivalent as within homes. Still, they are placed inside the common and public areas of investment properties such as blocks of units, schools, retirement villages, caravan parks and more.

Legislation – If there is a smoke alarm/s in your Body Corporate common spaces, this law applies to you.
From the Queensland Fire and Rescue Services – Queensland Government website:

“In a body corporate situation, who is liable for installing smoke alarms?
The individual lot owner (unit proprietors) is accountable for inside the four walls of the unit. The body corporate is accountable for installing smoke alarms in the communal areas of the building.

What is the meaning of testing / monitoring the smoke alarm (hard-wired and/or battery-operated)?

Under Australian Standard (AS 3786-1993), a smoke alarm (hard-wired and battery) must include a self-test facility that mechanically or electronically mimics the presence of smoke in the sensing assembly. In most circumstances, this is a button on the alarm that is depressed for a short time – if it sounds, then the test is positive.

The use of canned smoke is an extra test that can be utilised for additional certainty. Some agents and contractors use this system and the button test, but this is in addition to the legal obligations.

AS 1851-2012 – This refers to the routine maintenance of fire protection systems and equipment requirements for communal areas on a consistent basis. Testing and inspection by a qualified technician are promoted based on this standard.”

Why is a Smoke Alarm Test Necessary?

  • Provides peace of mind
  • Takes the risk away from the BC Manager and Owners
  • Regularly programmed visits allow more minor issues to be identified and fixed promptly before they grow more significant and more costly to correct.
  • Smoke alarms have expiry ranges. It is the liability of the Body Corporate to assure the smoke alarm is replaced / serviced before it terminates. The highest lifespan for a smoke alarm is 10 years. However, they frequently do not last that long.

What our service involves:

  • Test, inspection and reporting
  • Conduct smoke test and check the audio output to assure decibel level reaches 90dB
  • Replace 9volt batteries as needed
  • Inspect smoke alarm fitting to assure still within the expiry period
  • Remove and clean away any rubble or obstruction nearby the smoke alarms
