Fire Damper Testing

What is a fire damper?

A fire damper can be defined as a device installed in ducts and air transfer opening designed to close automatically upon detection of heat. It also serves to interrupt migratory airflow, resist the passage of flame, and maintain the integrity of the fire rated separation.

 

Its primary function is to prevent the passage of flame from one side of a fire-rated separation to the other.

Compliance
