Fire and Smoke Damper Inspection


Fire and smoke damper inspections are critical to ensure the safety of the lives within your care. When a fire or smoke emergency strikes, dampers provide critical protection by constricting the flow of air a fire can use as fuel, and by mitigating the spread of smoke to areas away from the fire source, limiting damage to facilities, and danger to personnel and clientele. Inspections are required one-year after new installations and then 4-6 years thereafter to ensure proper operation and function.

Fire Door Solutions will follow your life safety plans to locate and label all fire and smoke dampers. We will label ceiling grids, with a concern for aesthetics, just below where dampers are located so that AHJ’s or your building maintenance team can locate them easily for testing or maintenance.

Our professional Damper Inspectors will test the actuation of every manual, pneumatic, and electric damper and recommend ways in which actuation and testing can be made more efficient to ensure the safety of personnel, reduce the costs of future inspections, and protect the lives of others. We will label each damper with a unique bar code. In this way, all inspection and repair activities and related notes are stored in our cloud database for future reference and retrieval by simply using a tablet to scan the barcode.

Fire Door Solutions also provides damper repairs in order to get your fire and smoke dampers into compliance quickly. NFPA 105 specifically states that where damper repairs are needed, repairs must be undertaken “without delay.” This emphasizes, again, the critical protection fire and smoke dampers provide in your facility’s life safety protocols.
