detectors are the most sensitive method of
detecting a fire and should be used wherever
conditions allow. Smoke detectors are, however,
vulnerable to false alarms caused by dust,
steam or smoke from cooking. Where there is
a likelihood of false alarms caused by any
of these effects a thermal detector should
be used instead. It is important to choose
a smoke detector which is approved to Australian
Standards or to a recognised overseas body
such as UL or LPC.

detectors are normally used in environments
where a smoke detector would generate false
alarms - such as kitchens or shower rooms.
Rate-of-rise heat detectors will trigger if
the temperature goes above a fixed threshold
or if the temperature rises rapidly. This
type of detector would be the first choice
in an environment where a smoke detector could
not be used.
