Key to compliant fire damper inspections is to understand what fire dampers are fitted (or should be fitted) into your property. Key information can be found in building plans, fire strategy documentation and fire risk assesments.
If no documentation is available, the first visit should build up a list of installed dampers for future fire damper testing.
Physical inspections of each fire dampers operation and installation by trained engineers ensure the damper will operate as intended when its needed. A thorough check includes releasing the damper and documenting its operation whilst recording any defects or installation failures.
Ongoing PPM maintenance tests will ensure any degradation of the fire damper will be quickly identified, protecting your property and occupants.
Fire damper inspections should be carried out every 12 months as a minimum!
