As part of AS1851-2005 a smoke curtain requires yearly inspections and testing to ensure all year round working operation. Smoke curtains should be inspected and maintained in accordance with table 188.8.131.52 of Australia Standards.
Colt International offer a full service and maintenance package with equipment compliance certification for all smoke and fire curtains and smoke ventilation equipment.
The installed curtains slowly drop under gravity fail safe conditions to prevent the spread of smoke to other areas. As part of the testing procedure Colt International measure descent speed/m, voltage reading, battery backup condition, control connections and general condition of the curtain and internal motors.
