Fire Damper Survey & Testing2018-11-13T15:08:34+00:00

Project Description


Fact: Over 60,000 fire dampers tested each year

Fire dampers are passive fire protection products installed in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) ducts to prevent the spread of fire inside the ductwork through fire-resistance rated walls and floors

BS 9999:2017 states that arrangements should be made for all fire dampers to be tested at regular intervals by a competent person on completion of the installation and at least annually, and to be repaired or replaced immediately if found faulty. Spring operated fire dampers should be tested annually and fire dampers situated in dust laden and similar atmospheres should be tested much more frequently at periods suited to the degree of pollution

Our fire / smoke damper survey and testing includes:

  • Mark the location of fire / smoke dampers on building drawings (if available)

  • Dampers will be number labelled for reference in the reports

  • Reports will identify type and mechanism of dampers and provide sizes

  • Reports will identify damper accessibility
  • Provide photographic evidence of dampers opened, closed, defects / inaccessibility

  • Reports will indicate whether dampers are a pass or fail

  • Reports will identify any defects found, remedial works required and assign responsibility party

  • Single downloadable reports available 24 hours following testing procedure via Boris software client login

  • Final reports available for export in single, bulk and excel versions via Boris software client login

  • Remedial work based upon the report can be undertaken

Our collaborative and proactive approach drives efficiency, cost savings and offers our clients peace of mind. We are committed to continuous improvement, through innovation and investment in our personnel, methodologies and equipment.

We offer extremely competitive rates and daytime or evenings to offer minimal disturbance to our customers
