WHY YOU MUST HAVE YOUR FIRE DAMPERS INSPECTED AND WORKING

Fire dampers are an essential life safety device installed in commercial buildings to slow the spread of smoke and fire during an emergency.  State building codes mandate the inspection and certification of fire dampers every four years (every six years for hospitals).  Fire and Smoke dampers are not visually apparent and therefore often overlooked.  The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has published NFPA 80 and NFPA 105 standards that establish inspection/operation requirements, as well as the need for certified technicians to inspect, repair if needed, and certify that fire dampers are fully operational.
