Queensland law states that wireless interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms must be installed on each storey:
- In every bedroom; and,
- In hallways which connect bedrooms and the rest of the dwelling; or
- If there is no hallway, between the bedrooms and other parts of the storey; and
- If there are no bedrooms on a storey at least one smoke alarm must be installed in the most likely path of travel to exit the dwelling.
Additionally, the legislation states;
Where practicable smoke alarms must be placed on the ceiling. Smoke alarms must not be placed:
- Within 300mm of a corner of a ceiling and a wall,
- Within 300mm of a light fitting,
- Within 400mm of an air-conditioning vent,
- Within 400mm of the blades of a ceiling fan.
There are special requirements for stairways, sloping ceilings, and ceilings with exposed beams. Specific requirements are further explained in the Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008.
If it is not practical for the prescribed location requirements to be met (e.g. may be affected by hot steam from shower or fumes from cooking), the owner may put the alarm at another location that will still provide a warning to occupants of the building.
The diagram below is produced by the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) and serves as a useful representation to show smoke alarm locations within a dwelling.
Note: if you have existing hardwired smoke alarms they must be replaced by hardwired photoelectric smoke alarms. Any new builds or substantial property renovations also require hardwired photoelectric smoke alarms.
