If your dwelling includes a locked garage
A heat alarm must be installed in any private garage attached to the dwelling, that is not associated with the dwelling.
This means heat alarms must be installed in a private garage that forms part of the dwelling, located beside or beneath the dwelling, that is locked and not accessible to the guest.
In these circumstances a heat alarm must be installed in the locked private garage, interlinked to smoke alarms in the dwelling by either 240 volts interlinked or wireless.
Notification signs must be installed in the private garage and dwelling advising the guest of this situation.
The intent of this legislation is to provide guests, that do not have access to the garage of a potential building fire where they cannot reasonably investigate the situation.
A detached Class 1a residential dwelling does not require a fire extinguisher or blanket under the regulations, however, some hosts may choose to have them installed. If this is the case, please select these items when placing an order.
During the initial assessment, we may determine that the existing smoke alarms are non-compliant with the new regulations, out of date or not working, and in such cases, the installation of the required wireless smoke alarms would be required.
Evacuation diagrams (plans), including “You are here” and the NSW Government Emergency App QR Code, will be installed and secured on the wall near the entry door, and each bedroom, with lightweight, brushed A4 aluminum frames with double-sided tape.
NOTE: Ongoing annual inspections available upon request.
Domestic or Residential buildings being single, standalone houses or houses attached horizontally, such as terrace houses, row houses or townhouses.
