Designed to prevent the spread of fire.

Fire dampers are located within ventilation systems and they are designed to prevent the spread of fire inside the systems. As such, it’s important to make fire damper testing part of a building’s overall fire prevention strategy and factor it into your maintenance regime.

When functioning as they should, these fire damper installations should effectively prevent the spread of fire and smoke throughout a building by closing when heat is detected. Therefore, it is crucial to check that the actual detection system and mechanism in place are working, so that they are ready to activate should a fire break out.

Fire damper testing requirements

In accordance with British Standards 9999:2017 Annex W.1, all fire dampers should be tested, cleaned and maintained at regular intervals, not exceeding 2 years, whilst spring operated fire dampers should be tested at least once a year. This is because general usage of a ventilation system can create gradual contamination of the fire damper mechanism, which must be removed using the correct fire damper testing tools and procedures.

You may also want to increase your fire damper testing frequency to keep them in good working order all year round and in line with the current legal requirements. J&I can help you do this by scheduling regular maintenance checks and performing our industry-standard fire damper testing.

Consequences Of Poorly Maintained Fire Dampers

If a building is your responsibility, remember that the consequences of faulty fire dampers could be serious. In the event that there is a fire, these devices can save lives by preventing the unnecessary spread of smoke and fire to other parts of the building, giving people enough time to evacuate and the fire department a better chance of containing the blaze.

If someone in the building was to actually die as a result of a fire that could have been controlled with operational fire dampers, you could be liable for prosecution under the Corporate Manslaughter Act.

You would also find it harder to claim for fire damage on your insurance unless you can provide reports which prove you have had your fire dampers tested and maintained.

We are Grilled Grub based in Maidenhead and as you can imagine need a cleaning company to make sure our equipment is in the best condition possible. We have used J and L for our business to clean our extraction system twice now, the staff were really professional, the job done fantastic and we would personally like to thank Elizabeth and the staff involved in the cleaning process. We thoroughly recommend them as a business and will definitely use them in the future.

Beata provided a professional service in promptly responding to my queries via email and was accommodating to availability in organizing the deep clean of kitchen. Alicia and Klaudia were very prompt and arrived 15mins before arrival time. They were very professional, arrived with own necessary equipment, wore protective footwear over their own shoes and were quick and efficient. They removed the heavily stained tile grouting, grill and oven of grease and removed the stickiness that covered the worktops. In addition, they were very respectful and polite. Overall, very happy and satisfied with the service they provided.
