Code Compliance Checks & Safety Inspections


Trash & Linen Chute Fire Safety & Hazards

Did you know...

Every building built with a chute system must be constructed and operated within International Building Code standards (§713.11 – 713.13) to comply with basic fire safety rules. Not only will compliance avoid the potential for fines or threats from the local fire marshal, it's a wise idea due to these serious safety considerations:

A fire inside a dirty chute is far worse than a chimney fire. Flames inside the chute column can burn trash grime and quickly spread upward to higher floors in the building.

Chute intake doors must seal to control the naturally occuring upward draft of air inside the chute, and to provide a minimum fire resistance.

The automatic fire safety door (discharge door) at the bottom of the chute must be operable – this function is your #1 line of defense in choking the upward draft and preventing a chute fire. There must also be an automatic sprinkler close to the bottom of the chute.

Having the correct intake doors properly fitted on each floor also helps to prevent children from entering the chute or chute cavity.

The chute systems we install are fully NFPA 82 and International Building Code certified, code compliant, and fire safe. Each chute system we design is specifically for your application and is certified by a Professional Engineer to ensure optimum safety and disposal efficiency.

The Chute Company chute systems are engineered to International Fire Code with a minimum fire rating of 2 hours. Our systems are designed to ASME standards and built out of heavy duty durable alloy steel to resist impact damage. The systems we install are insurable and built to last for the life of the building.

Our team of professionals will ensure your chute system meets International Building Code and Fire Protection standards. We design certifiable new chute systems for new construction and retrofit and upgrade older chute designs. If your building is old and is in need of renovations, The Chute Company can help with that! Many of our clients own and operate older buildings that cannot keep up with the garbage loads of modern high-density living.
