A GUIDE FOR CHECKING AND MAINTAINING FIRE CURAINS

KEEP THE AREA CLEAR

First, make sure the area under the curtain is clear. You must remove any items that are placed underneath the curtains, such as tables, chairs, tables, bins and shelves. Also, ensure that curtains reach the ceiling and do not touch the floor. Fire curtains can be hindered from performing their task efficiently, and may require costly repairs.

TEST AND TEST AGAIN

Fire curtains should be checked every week after they have been installed to ensure that they work properly. To ensure compliance with fire regulations and building codes, you should include the operation of the curtains in your fire shutter drills. You should also check your curtains at least once every six months with a competent company.

Keep an eye out for wear and tear

As an extra safety precaution, you should inspect your fire curtain system for signs of wear as you go through the testing phase. If not checked regularly, fire curtains can become damaged, torn, or have blockages that prevent them from performing to their full potential. To ensure that curtains work properly, a thorough inspection is required.

Register Your Findings

Keep track of all inspections, maintenance and findings so that you don’t forget. It is important to record dates, times, and the results of any inspections. Also, it is important to document any potential hazards or damages that may be discovered, along with steps to correct them.
