Fire Damper Inspection and Repair Service
Fire dampers form a vital part of any effective fire prevention system. Not only does a fire damper restrict the flow of air to a fire, it also blocks the progress of smoke and flames towards other parts of the building. We regularly undertake full inspections of healthcare and other premises, checking fire dampers and other preventative measures for signs of corrosion, actuator failure, or other signs of wear and tear. Where we find that a fire damper installation is defective or insufficient to meet the current standards of The Joint Commission or NFPA standards, we will suggest a suitable solution. Our aim is to ensure that every client ends up with a safe building in good repair, which will provide a safe working environment for their workers, service users and visitors. Fire Dampers need to be inspected every 6 years or 1 year after installation.
When Was The Last Time You Had Your Fire Dampers Checked?
According to NFPA (188.8.131.52 & 184.108.40.206) Hospitals, for example, are required to have had their fire dampers checked at least once every six years. For commercial and medical offices, a suitable inspection should be undertaken every four years. Ensuring your fire dampers are in good condition isn’t just sound working practice, in many buildings it’s a legal requirement. If you need to make sure that your fire dampers are in an acceptable condition, our fully experienced and knowledgeable team are the perfect solution.
