It's What We Do... Building Compliance

ALLCHEX Building Compliance Services (a division of Firechex Pty Ltd) offer annual inspections and quotes to provide compliant window locks & restricting devices.

 

If convenient, the annual window inspections can be arranged to coincide with the Annual Fire Safety inspections through our Firechex Fire Services division, to avoid the need to arrange multiple access visits. 

We also offer an extensive range of electrical services including safety inspections of meter boards / testing & tagging in relation to required WHS compliance.

WINDOW SAFETY COMPLIANCE

The NSW state government has mandated for strata buildings that all openable windows more than 2m above ground floor height outside and less than 1.7m above the inside floor must be fitted with devices that prevent them opening more than 12.5 centimetres. This has already taken effect for new constructions and existing buildings will be given time to retrofit before 13th March 2018.

 

OUR SIMPLE STEP PROCEDURE

 

1. Assessment

Our initial inspection involves an external inspection of the building to determine the window type and configuration and an internal inspection of at least one typical (non ground floor) unit. We shall then provide you with a brief written assessment of window locks/safety devises required and quote to achieve compliance.

2. Works & Certification

We shall contact all occupants by delivering letters to letterboxes, schedule in works and monitor non responding units. Once all have been attended to we shall issue the Strata Manager with certification confirming that all windows have been fitted with compliant locks.
