A fire damper is a component of an HVAC system designed to stop the spread of fire throughout partitions and other areas of a facility. Dampers play a crucial role in the life and safety of the HVAC systems in a facility. Maintaining fire dampers regularly ensures that the damper is working properly and helps prevent the spread of smoke and fire throughout a building in the event of a fire. Fire dampers are complex, though, so it can be difficult to assure your damper is performing optimally.
