1. Lower all curtains to fully extended position to check operation and proper limit settings. Listen and watch carefully while in motion for clues to irregular operation. Any jerking, jumping, loud squealing, etc. should be noted for closer examination.

  2. Check the lower 8’ of cable for damage and frays, this part of the cable is under the most strain when the curtain is lifted and will show damage earlier than the upper runs.

  3. Note that the cables will most likely be loose and require adjustment.

  4. Visually site the alignment with the cable guides above to confirm proper alignment.

  5. Check for and note fabric damage.

  6. Move to the catwalks to inspect attachment brackets for proper positioning and slippage.

  7. Visually inspect the entire system for proper truss to truss connection, truss to building connections, and curtain drive system to truss connection.

  8. If any suspect areas are detected, a hands-on inspection and tightening are warranted. This will require either using a lift to access the point (rarely accessible) or climbing to the position. Most of the system should be visible from the catwalks and a good judgment can be made as to the integrity of the system. Climbing onto the truss or lowering into position will only be necessary when weakness or poor operation is found.

  9. Operate all curtains from the catwalk after a thorough visual inspection is complete and any required adjustments have been made. Watch and listen carefully through the cycle for any undetected problems. The catwalk is best for this part of the inspection because the drive system should be most visible and best observed here.

  10. Provide an itemized, clearly identified report to the owner.
