      What is Fire Damper?

      A fire damper is designed to prevent fire from spreading through your ductwork system. Fire dampers are essentially doors that close off the system to prevent fire from spreading from one place to another. A fire damper can compartmentalize your ductwork, trapping fire in one place and preventing it from spreading throughout your ventilation system.

      The fusible connections are the most crucial part of fire dampers. The temperature in the ductwork rises if a fire starts. The fusible linkages will melt at 72 degrees. Because the fire damper is on a drop mechanism, it will close and seal the airflow as soon as the link melts. As fire dampers are a crucial part of the ducts system availing fire damper testing services is a must for all residents.

      Significance of Fire Damper Inspections

      When your fire damper is working properly, it closes automatically when the temperature increases drastically. In the case of a fire, it is consequently vital that all the parts of a fire damper function properly.

      It’s easy to overlook fire dampers because they’re usually not visible to us. Fire dampers remain hidden in the ceiling or the ducting. Because these devices are difficult to access, routine maintenance and fire damper testing must be performed by a licensed specialist.
