ionization Smoke Alarms

Life Safety & Litigation Concerns

It's Time To Tell Landlords The Truth

If Your Properties Have Any ionization Alarms Installed,

Even Though They May Be 'Listed', 'Certified' and 'Tested' . . .

False Alarms Lull
Tenants into a False

Sense of Security

Burning Toast

Tenants think

they're safe.

They're often

lulled into a false

sense of security

when their ionization

smoke alarm goes

off when cooking

and especially when they are 'tested' by

a smoke alarm

compliance company.

Tenants are not safe when any ionization alarms are installed.

Typical 240V Ionization Alarm

Listed, Certified & Tested

1.*  CSIRO ActivFireTM  Listed

      smoke alarms may carry

      a sticker showing they have

      been tested and listed by

      the Australian government''s
      (CSIRO) ActivfireTM  Scheme,

2.* Australian Standard Certified

      smoke alarms may carry an

      Australian Standards
     'Certified Product' sticker,

3* Compliance Company Tested

      smoke alarms are regularly

      'tested' for compliance with

      the flawed Australian Smoke

      Alarm Standard and often
      carry a 'tested' sticker.

      See the WFSF's Open Letter
to Compliance Contractors.




. . . Your Properties and Tenants Are Absolutely Not Safe!

Landlords, are ionization Alarms in any of Your Properties?

What Type of Alarms Do I Have?

If your smoke alarm has a radiation symbol on the back it is an ionization.

Photoelectric alarms are environmentally friendly - they do not contain any

radioactive material (see sample ionization alarm above)


QFES Recommendation

The Queensland Fire Service strongly recommend that,

"ionization smoke alarms be replaced with a photoelectric type as soon as possible."


ionization Alarms Discontinued

Clipsal (Schneider Electric) FiretekTM model 755SMA hard-wired smoke alarm was one of Australia's biggest selling ionization alarms.  Clipsal (Schneider Electric) and several other manufacturers have discontinued these alarms or produced new photelectric-only ranges without any ionization alarms.

"I strongly urge all landlords to make

sure they only have photoelectric smoke

alarms in all their properties."
