smoke alarms

Is it time to replace your smoke detectors batteries or maybe even upgrade to the latest detectors? 

Did you know All smoke alarms:

• Contain a battery

• Need to be tested regularly

• Need to be replaced after 10 years.

All fire services in Australia recommend photo-electric smoke alarms when installing or replacing existing smoke alarms.

There are also many rules and regulations that you need to be aware of - check them out here.

Go Green


And get a Scraptrap (designed in Australia) 

The Minister for the Opposition (read father-in-law) installed one of these beauties in our new kitchen sink. I was a bit dubious at first but after having it there, I wondered just why they aren't compulsory every where. In fact, they are mandatory in all NSW commercial kitchens!!

The Minster for Home Affairs (read wife) thinks that its such a brilliant addition, that she now wants won in the sink in the butlers pantry - there goes my profits… All jokes aside though, one of my customers (who owns a commercial kitchen here in Victoria) thinks that it is a fantastic idea and wants one so that he can reduce the possibility of further blocked drains - plus he may even beat the Victorian authorities before they mandate it.
