The safety of residents and occupants in multi storey developments is of great importance, as such regular inspection of essential fire safety measures is critical. Chute doors, also referred to as self-closing hoppers are classified as an essential measure and it is recommended that these are regularly inspected for fire safety and compliance.
We can attend to inspect and certify chute doors as either a standalone or one off service or incorporate this service into a scheduled maintenance package. This will ensure that the chute system is operating as designed and intended, further ensuring building managers, owners and body corporates are meeting regulatory and safety obligations and giving you peace of mind.
