Smoke Alarm Compliance

We offer a comprehensive, tax-deductible compliancy service to promise you peace of mind. Our certificate of compliance not only assures you that your property and its occupants are safe: it protects you from fines, liability for accidents, and rejection of insurance claims.

What We Do

Our expert technicians will:

  • Install new alarms*
  • Inspect and test every smoke alarm annually
  • Check that smoke alarms meet Australian Standard AS 3786
  • Replace broken and out of date smoke alarms
  • Replace batteries where required
  • Check that the correct number of smoke alarms are installed
  • Check that the smoke alarms are correctly located per Building Code of Australia requirements.
  • Provide a certificate of compliance upon completion of inspection
  • Offer 12 months warranty
  • *ARA Compliance uses AS 3786 approved photoelectric smoke alarms.

Legal Obligations

Compliance with smoke alarm safety standards is of paramount importance - not only to protect the occupants of your building, but to avoid the legal consequences of negligence.

If a building doesn’t have the correct amount of smoke alarms, if the alarms aren’t installed in the correct positions, or if the smoke alarms are faulty, property and strata managers may face fines or even legal action. Additionally, most insurance policies feature an exclusion clause that allows the insurance company to reject claims if smoke alarms safety standards have not been met.

The consequences of non-compliance can be dire. With ARA Compliance, you can rest assured that you, your building, and its occupants are protected.

Pool Compliance

To ensure that the risk of accidents around your pool is at an absolute minimum, ARA Compliance will visit your property and provide a comprehensive inspection.

If your pool fence or barrier meets legislative standards, you’ll receive our certificate of compliancy. If not, we will provide a report with a detailed breakdown of the non-compliant sections, and a description of the further steps that need to be taken before your pool can be deemed compliant.

Legal Obligations

Pool fencing laws vary from state to state, but throughout Australia, it’s the owners that are responsible for ensuring their pools are compliant with the relevant legislation. The installation of a compliant pool fence can mean the difference between safety and tragedy.

Window Compliance

Blind and Window Cords

Often overlooked by owners, blind and window cords constitute a very real threat to small children.

Our compliance technicians are experts in maintaining safety standards. Upon your request, we’ll visit your property, inspect all corded window coverings for compliance with the relative legislation, install safety devices when necessary, and offer a certificate of compliance.

Window Locks

To ensure compliancy and prevent accidental injury or death, ARA Compliance offers a comprehensive on-site inspection service.

We’ll check to see that all relevant windows meet legislation, repair faulty locks, supply and install new locks if necessary, and provide a certificate as evidence of your compliance.

Legal Obligations

The legislation regarding blinds and window cords affects Australian businesses involved in the supply of window coverings (importers, distributors, retailers and installers) as well as the owners and renters of residential, commercial, and government properties.

Although the legislation only covers corded curtains and blinds installed after 1st July, 2011, the intent behind the legislation - keeping children safe - applies to all existing corded curtains and blinds.

Safety Switch Compliance

Safety switches are an easy, foolproof way to safeguard your building’s occupants against the danger of electrocution.

Our expert technicians offer installation, maintenance, repair and inspection of safety switches in switchboards or power points. Our certificate of compliance proves your adherence to the legislation and your commitment to safety.

Legal Obligations
