It’s a situation we all don’t want (or really expect) to be in, but in reality, the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service attend thousands of house fires every year.

As of January 1 2022, it was a requirement that all landlords had interconnected smoke alarms installed in residential rental properties. All other dwellings must also transition to full compliance by 2027. What this means is when one alarm goes off, they all go off, giving everyone more time to escape and the best chance of survival. 

In these types of situations, preparation and forward planning are key. QFES recommends people take three simple steps to protect their household:

  1. Check your smoke alarms work
  2. Create a home fire escape plan
  3. Practice it so everyone knows their role

North Coast Blinds & Security is committed to helping local families when it comes to step two. As the Sunshine Coast’s leading supplier of Crimsafe, our products can become part of your emergency exit plan. 

Crimsafe is the industry leader in stainless steel security screens, and while traditionally it keeps crims out, it also locks you and your family inside.

In the event of emergency access to doors may be obscured with smoke or flame and the only escape path is a window. This is why North Coast Blinds & Security stocks the Crimsafe Safe-S-Cape range. The unique design means you can quickly escape as the screen can be manufactured to be either hinged or sliding.

Safe-S-Scape security screens don’t need a key, you just unlock them from the inside with the push of a button then decide whether it swings in or out when it’s open, depending on what will be easiest for you. The system is so easy to use that even a small child can operate it, providing parents with even more peace of mind.

Crimsafe Safe-S-Scape products can be made to measure for a perfect fit, and do not compromise the benefits of the product. You can rest easy knowing the screen still has the strength you expect, while also knowing you won’t be trapped in the event of a house fire.
