Refuse Chute Compliance


Chute Fire Compliance Certificate

Bin chutes in residential buildings require regular maintenance and testing to ensure they remain safe. When fires occur in bin rooms or bin chutes, toxic smoke is often drawn straight up through the bin chute and can easily escape into landings, stairwells and even into residents apartments.


Duty of Care

To ensure Building Managers meet their fire safety obligations, they must make sure that the bin chutes and laundry chutes are inspected, tested and serviced regularly by a competent person, someone with the knowledge, training and experience to issue a fire safety compliance certificate. Negligence in this area could endanger lives. All our engineers are experienced and qualified to carry out this essential work.



Anyone tasked with testing the fire safety of a bin chute should be fully qualified and have a complete understanding of all the safety features included in the installation. Technicians should be able to carry out controlled smoke tests, fire closure plate tests and servicing. Engineers need to know what seals to use, what fixings are approved and how to carry out robust tests that mimic what would occur if a fire was to take hold in a bin store or bin chute. All these details are required before a fire safely compliance certificate can be issued for each bin chute.
