What are Fire and Smoke Dampers

and why are they so important?

These passive fire safety units are crucial in preventing the spread of fire and smoke through a buildings HVAC system (Heating, Ventilation and air conditioning) and it is therefore a legal requirement for them to be inspected and tested annually as per BS 9999:2017 regulations.

The testing and maintenance however does not need to be a painful process and Flamefast Extraction Solutions will aim to make the process as affordable and convenient as possible while adhering to the stringent requirements to ensure your safety

Fire & Smoke Dampers serve as passive fire protection within buildings to fulfil a critical role towards fire safety, and is therefore vital that they are kept in a good working condition at all times. It is with this in mind that Flamefast Extraction Solutions offers you our annual service contract which includes Maintaining, Cleaning and Testing of all accessible Fire and Smoke Dampers along with full documentation.

Should an employee or tenant die in a building fire, and poorly maintained ductwork and fire dampers is found to be a contributing factor to the death, those responsible are liable for prosecution under the Corporate Manslaughter Act 2007
