NZBC F7 Warning Systems: Smoke alarms shall be located as follows:
a. In multi-storey units, there shall be at least one smoke alarm on each level within
the household unit.
b. On levels containing sleeping spaces, the smoke alarms shall be located either:
i) In every sleeping space, or
ii) Within 3.0m of every sleeping space door. In this case, the smoke alarms must
be audible to sleeping occupants on the other side of the closed doors.
c. In all cases, so the sound pressure level complies with that specified in NZS 4514.
Comment: Smoke alarms also need to be located so that an alarm is given before the escape route from
any bedroom becomes blocked by smoke. This includes those parts of escape routes on other floors.
Although not required by this Acceptable Solution, the interconnection of individual smoke alarms should be
considered if audibility is a problem.
Smoke alarms as per above in the dwelling are shown on floor plan.
