Health and Safety

Movable walls need regular planned maintenance by an accredited company.

Accordial is an accredited company and offers the most comprehensive service packages for movable walls in the UK.

We are the UK's only approved contractor to inspect, service and repair Alco Systems and Brockhouse Systems wall partitions.

We provide a free log book with every service to ensure you are health and safety compliant. We will also provide training to all of your staff as part of any service visit so that they are competently trained to use the system.

The following law and regulations apply to movable walls and sliding doors:

  • The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
  • The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992
  • The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998
  • The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999

An 'at a glance' version detailing specifics of what, by law, companies must at least adhere to can be downloaded here.

Under current health and safety law and regulation, if you do not maintain or service your movable wall systems, you are failing to exercise a duty of care to your staff or those in its vicinity.

Should an accident occur, the injured person/s could start civil action against you where you could be prosecuted and damages may be awarded.
