Fire Damper Inspection & Compliance
Fire & smoke dampers are installed within the duct system to prevent the spread of fire from one fire compartmentation zone to another. Should a fire break out and get into the ventilation system, the damper will close of the supply of clean and/or dirty air which will increase the spread of the fire and smoke into other areas of the building.
Fire Compartmentation Analysis
Fire Compartmentation is an important part of Passive Fire Protection. Providing compartmentation to current Building Regulation and British Standards requirements involves sub-dividing buildings into manageable areas of risk, thereby preventing the spread of fire, smoke and toxic gases and providing valuable time to evacuate the building.
All public buildings will have fire compartmentation built into them to prevent the spread of fire and smoke and provide safety and protection for the people within the building. Over time, the infrastructure, usage and design of the building will change. New data and electrical cables, pipes and ducting will be installed; it is for this reason that a fire compartmentation survey should be carried out to assess what changes have been made in the infrastructure and to identify if there are any breaches in the fire compartmentation wall.
