The Catex is a «machine» for triggering avalanches. The manufacturer offers an annual inspection contract to operators from the moment it is put into service. The warranty inspection is free after a full winter season of operation. Subsequently, inspections are charged according to the maintenance contract agreed upon with the customer. A Catex is built to last for decades; the oldest CATEXMONTAZ systems are over 30 years old and still function perfectly. No Catex can operate with “approximations”; it must be in perfect working order, just like new. Therefore, maintenance is fundamental.
The manufacturer specifies the dates for major inspections in the operating manual. More
intrusive operations are performed to maintain ideal functionality.
