Fire Dampers

Fire Dampers are another key component of your passive fire protection. 

Fire Dampers are mainly used in heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems to prevent the spread of fire inside the ductwork to prevent the free passage of fire and smoke by creating a diversion within the fire damper itself.

Why skip on safety? There is no time for you to second guess fire safety, especially when other people are involved. Fires are dangerous. To help you make sure your property is fire safe, Ventro has a range of passive fire protection products that can help assure you and your staff or customers of fire safety in your building.

How do they work?

Fire Dampers work through the intumescent material inside the damper itself. This fire resistant material reacts to the detection of heat or smoke by automatically closing the device to prevent the free passage of smoke or fire. Creating a compartment in itself that will eventually burn out, but will give people and emergency services time to react accordingly. 

What's the difference between a Smoke and a Fire Damper?

A Smoke Damper is designed to prevent the flow of rapidly moving smoke. Smoke Dampers combine both that of a fire and Smoke Damper. They are able to reset and are generally operated electronically by smoke and fire detectors. Smoke may be visible, even when temperatures or heat is not at a high point.

From the 1st July 2013, it became a legal requirement that under the Construction Products Regulation, all new fire and smoke dampers used in UK buildings have to be fire rated and CE marked to indicate this compliance.

This CE mark recognises the testing standard BS EN 1366 - Fire Resistance Tests - for service installations which allow adequate testing in controlled environments and to make sure that the products have been installed correctly by accredited and approved installers.

Why would you need to get Fire Dampers installed in your building?

●     They play a crucial role in fire safety and preventing fires in your building or property from spreading;

●     They give you that extra time to get out of the building and increase safety of everyone involved;

●     They are compliant against the practice of fire safety in the UK;

●     As of October 2005, Fire Safety Law changed to state that it is your responsibility to ensure that you maintain your fire safety systems.
