    HOW IS MAINTENANCE PERFORMED?

    As with other safety equipment, the social fire door must undergo constant maintenance, in order to ensure its proper functioning and assistance in emergency situations. The main ones are: monthly and half-yearly; check below the characteristics of each one.

    MONTHLY MAINTENANCE

    Monthly maintenance aims to check the door locks, ensuring the necessary opening and closing in case of fires. Like any other preventive procedure, it must be performed by a qualified professional, avoiding further problems.

    HALF-YEARLY MAINTENANCE

    The half-yearly maintenance, in turn, aims to make sure that the door hinges are working correctly. This process allows for safety and calm in emergencies. Part of this procedure is also the responsibility of checking the door leaves, ensuring that there are no characteristics that can hinder the containment of possible outbreaks of fires and smoke.

    HOW SHOULD THE DOOR BE CLEANED?

    In a country like Brazil, it is natural for cleaning to be carried out with the help of water and soap or other cleaning products. However, this same method cannot be applied to the fire door, because it can serve as a combustion in case of fires because of its chemical components.

    Therefore, the best way to clean these doors is with the help of a damp cloth (only with water) and then a totally dry cloth, to remove excess moisture. In addition to eliminating any type of dirt or residues from the structure, it also prevents accidents in times of emergencies.

    In this regard, it is worth noting that the cleaning on the floor and ceiling around the doors must follow the same principle to ensure the correct maintenance of security.

    DO YOU KNOW WHAT AVCB IS?

    The Fire Department Inspection Report, meaning the acronym AVCB, consists of a report issued by the Fire Department. This document, which is essential for the operation of various establishments, buildings and shops, aims to ensure that the structure meets basic safety requirements, which is not limited to the social fire door.

    In order to issue the document, it is essential that the site presents other equipment and security items, such as:

  • Fire extinguishers;
  • Smoke sensors;
  • Fire extinguisher signage;
  • Signaling of escape routes;
  • Handrail on emergency stairs;
  • Emergency lights;
  • Splinkers.
  • STRUCTURE OF EMERGENCY STAIRS

    Stairs and spaces around the emergency door, especially in condominiums where there is one resident per floor, for example, are constantly used for dispensing third-party objects, such as used furniture, garbage, carts, bikes, etc.

    However, it is important to maintain order and organization, leaving the spaces next to the door totally free, thus ensuring that it functions as a proper escape route. In addition, nearby objects can spread the flames more easily in emergency situations, preventing firefighters from working through these paths.

    Not only around the doors, but also the entire length of the staircase must be completely free, ensuring a panic-free passage for residents in the event of fires.
