Why you need fire damper inspections:
- Fire damper maintenance ensures that the damper is working properly and would help prevent the spread of smoke and fire throughout a building in the event of a fire.
- It can be difficult to assure optimal performance of fire and smoke dampers due to the complex structure of the dampers, so they need to be periodically inspected to assure they are still in working order.
- A thorough inspection is required by NFPA to ensure fire dampers are properly maintained and upon inspection, the building management must be provided a detailed report of every fire damper.
