Fire & Smoke Dampers
While the fire damper, smoke damper, and combination fire smoke damper are hidden from view, they play a vital role in passive fire protection. By preventing fire and smoke from spreading through ductwork, fire and smoke dampers prevent fire and smoke from spreading. A fire damper inspection and test is needed every four years for most buildings and every six years for healthcare facilities.
