Maintenance of smoke and heat evacuation systems
Smoke and heat evacuation systems are fire safety devices that allow you to remove the smoke and heat produced by a fire, facilitating extinguishing operations and the evacuation of people.
The maintenance of smoke and heat evacuation systems is a regulatory obligation that must be carried out by qualified personnel at least every six months. Maintenance consists of a series of functional checks, inspections, removal of obstructions, replacement of worn parts and opening tests of the vents.
At the end of the maintenance, formal documentation must be drawn up certifying the correct functioning of the systems and must be attached to the fire register. The maintenance is part of the plan for the periodic renewal of the fire prevention certificate and the periodic renewal certificate of fire compliance.
