Maintenance Plans for Fire Dampers

Maintenance Plans for Fire Dampers

Do you know it’s essential to test your fire dampers to ensure correct operation in the event of a fire and Swegon can offer full maintenance packages?


Do you know your maintenance obligations under BS 9999?

All fire dampers must be tested by a competent person after they have been installed and at regular intervals not exceeding two years.

If you have had spring-operated fire dampers (FireShield) installed in your ducting, then you will need to have these tested at least every 12 months or even more frequently if they are installed in an area that is affected by high levels of dust or pollution. All dampers used in hospitals must also be tested every twelve months.

You must ensure that your fire dampers are repaired or replaced immediately if found to be faulty. It is highly recommended that you create a maintenance plan to help you budget and schedule repairs, ensuring your fire dampers remain in a fully working condition.
