Refuse and Laundry chutes are subjected to heavy usage, and parts do deteriorate with time. Does every single part of your chute have the integrity to withstand a fire and give you the time to get everyone to safety? Are you concerned that your concrete chute system may contain asbestos?
When we come to understand your requirements, one of the first points we discuss in your fire plan is how much time you need to get your residents evacuated and allow the emergency services the opportunity to minimise damage to the building. We can offer several different chute options, ranging from 60 minutes to 240 minutes fire rating, all CE marked, tested and certified to British and European Standards.
Chute parts do deteriorate. During our inspections, we commonly see access doors, fire shutters, fire dampers or electrical interlock systems that are compromising the integrity of the whole chute system and need to be replaced. We are able to offer bespoke systems that are tested to the highest standards, in accordance with British and European Standards. In many cases, we are able to simply remove the defective Chute part and install new, compliant products.
Equally, we can replace the entire chute system, replacing the concrete chute with a 2mm=thick Galvanised Steel system that we have fabricated in the UK to conform with all relevant Standards.
We offer our own high-performance system, CE Marked & Certified to Fire Rating Chute Fire Safe Protection System, Certified to EN 15650 and Fire Tested to BS EN13501. This heavy-duty unit is offered with 12 months warranty and is made to order to the specific requirements of the site application which meet the requirements of the latest BS EN standards and conforms to ISO 834.
The first step is a survey and fire inspection of the chute with one of our experienced Certified Fire Technicians and Qualified Chute Engineers. They will determine what remedial works need to be completed in order for the chute to be fire safe and compliant. If we can repair access doors and fire plates/dampers we will make that recommendation, otherwise we will recommend to replace parts that irreparable.
By only replacing the defective chute part, Chute Fire Certification UK is committed to providing exceptional value to its customers. Our Engineers and Technicians are fully certified to ensure we keep high standards at affordable prices. We are able to work on a project-by-project basis, or within a flexible, multi-year commercial framework.
What difference would it make, knowing that your guests and residents can safely evacuate if there was a fire in your refuse or laundry chute?
Our Chute systems range from 60 minutes to 120 minute Fire Rated and Certified and available to the specific requirements of the site application.
Upon the completion of the remedial works a Chute Certification & Commissioning Report will be produced for the Chute by a Certified Fire Technician. This will provide peace of mind that each Chute is Fire Safe and has been maintained in accordance with the latest fire legislation. This report will be provided free of charge as part of our ongoing commitment to Fire Safety.
Chute Fire Certification UK will endeavour to provide all the elements of exceptional Account Management & Project Management. To ensure that the highest level of service is offered and maintained, Chute Fire Certification will assign a Director to manage the account who will be available 24/7.
