Fire damper testing is the process of inspecting and testing fire dampers within a building’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. These dampers are designed to close in the event of a fire, preventing the spread of flames and smoke through ductwork. Regular testing ensures that fire dampers are functioning correctly and helps maintain the safety of the building’s occupants.
According to British Standard BS 9999:2017, fire dampers should be tested at least every 12 months, or more frequently in some circumstances, such as in environments with high levels of dust or debris. Regular testing helps ensure that fire dampers are functioning correctly and comply with regulatory requirements.
During fire damper testing, our technicians will visually inspect the fire damper assembly for any signs of damage or wear, as well as ensure that the damper is correctly installed and accessible. The damper’s operation will be tested, and any obstructions in the ductwork will be removed. Finally, the damper will be reset to its normal open position, and a test report will be provided.
