With dampers, late problems are big problems. The dampers should also be tested in ‘real’ conditions to show how they perform in different types of wall or ceiling installations and when subjected to different pressures through the ventilation system. Insurance companies are taking greater interest in this area and will see lack of co-ordination in the project chain as compromising fire safety – they may choose to withhold cover as a result or dispute liability after a fire.
Fire dampers are not only used in air conditioning ducts, they are used in heating and ventilation systems as well. The are used to reduce the fire hazard, by preventing the spread of fire through duct work throughout the building. Once the temperature raises to a certain point, the fire dampers are activated which prevents the spread of the fire through the duct work.
