Smoke Alarm Install - Marrickville
This weeks featured electrical project
This old home luckily had ample space in the attic to run cables around. You could have put a few rooms up there!
We marked and drilled out the cables for the smoke alarms, then jumped up in the attic and poked the cables down in their correct positions.
Top view from the attic, Check out that old render, It certainly is a change from the gyprock you see in new homes today. It;s crazy durable stuff and has stood the test of time.
Very interesting to see where the old fittings were placed on top the gas pipes were capped off in the ceiling, from the days before electricity!
The cable is fished into the centre hole we have drill, we then inserted a timber support to hold the weight of the fan and connected the base.
Job complete smoke alarms installed! Julie's home is now up to code and there is two smoke alarms in this single story home by the bedrooms. They're also interconnected. This means that if one triggers the other will also trigger.
