Fire curtains work by reducing the risk of a fire spreading in a building. This helps to reduce and prevent damage to property but more importantly it can be the difference between life and death.
It’s importance can’t be underestimated.
However, having a fire curtain installed is only the first step. You need to make sure the fire curtain is properly maintained to ensure it works as intended should the worst happen.
Maintaining Your Fire Curtain Over Time
As the building occupier, you need to ensure that you are taking all the necessary precautions with your property and fire curtain maintenance is a big part of that.
Failing to follow a fire curtain maintenance programme could leave the building and its occupants vulnerable to risks of fire. You would also be violating fire regulations and insurance requirements of your building.
So, how often do you need to have maintenance work done on your fire curtain?
The frequency depends on how active your fire protection system is.
If you perform a fire test every week, you should have them inspected every quarter. However, less active systems will usually only need to be inspected yearly to make sure that your system has no critical wear and tear.
Of course, if a system has been damaged in some way, you must get it checked immediately.
