Maintaining the highest level of fire safety standards in multiple occupancy buildings remains a top priority. Without regular maintenance, the chutes become a conduit for the spread of fire and toxic smoke. Chute hopper doors should be fitted with smoke seals and an intumescent strip. The base of the chute should be fitted with an automatic fire closure plate. The chute should also be steam cleaned to remove any flammable waste such as cooking fats etc.
