The importance of fire damper testing

Fire damper testing is one of the most important maintenance jobs in a building. If fire dampers are faulty then the building is not as fire safe as it could be. It is absolutely imperative that fire damper testing be carried out at scheduled intervals, as per guidelines and that this testing is carried out by a competent person.

What makes fire damper testing so important?

The only job of your fire dampers is to prevent the spread of fire through a building. If the temperature inside a system exceed the allowable amount then the dampers will close, preventing a fire from spreading from one part of the building to another via the HVAC systems.

Naturally then, if your fire dampers are not in working order, the results could be catastrophic if a fire breaks out. We all hope for the best but it’s important for the safety of the workers in your building to plan for the worst. You can rest comfortably knowing that regular fire damper testing is scheduled, as required.

Who can undertake fire damper testing?

It is important that fire damper testing be undertaken by a trained and competent person, in accordance with all legislations and guidelines. Usually this person will be in the building maintenance trade and will have undertaken a CPD short course on fire damper testing, of the type run by us here at Hasman.

Whoever undertakes your fire damper testing, the most important thing is that it is carried out in accordance with the guidance: DW145, BS9999:2017 and BESA TB001.
