Industry leading experts, GED Laundry Chutes have announced a new, three-tiered fire inspection service, providing full coverage for any brand of laundry chute.
Changes in the law back in 2006 mean that the duty of carrying out regular fire risk assessments now lies with a “responsible person” appointed by the building owner. This can be both time consuming and daunting, particularly when it comes to the monitoring of fire prevention measures such as those found on laundry chutes.
GED Laundry Chutes’ Bronze, Silver and Gold fire inspection options are designed to help remove this stress and burden. The Bronze package comes with one annual inspection; the Silver package includes a full inspection every six months and for the highest level of coverage, there is also a quarterly Gold package.
For each service a specific written and photographic fire inspection report is completed on the laundry chute - fire doors, chute itself, automatic fire damper (if installed) and laundry room. All fire doors will be anti-bacterial cleaned, screws and bolts tightened and any moving parts will be lubricated. If any faults or potential problems are found then it will be fully reported and a repair or replacement can be ordered in good time.
While GED Laundry Chutes can also offer bespoke, all inclusive maintenance packages, the overall reliability of laundry chutes means that in most cases they recommend paying for repairs as they arise. This avoids unnecessary costs and means clients are not tied down to a single supplier, allowing them to use in-house labour or obtain competitive quotes. If an urgent problem should arise at any stage, GED Laundry Chutes offer an immediate call out service at a low cost standard charge.
