What is a fire damper and how does it work?
A fire damper is a ‘passive fire protection device’ that is installed in the ductwork of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to help prevent the spread of smoke and fire. They are usually fitted in areas where things such as fire resistance rated walls, floors or doors are located.
Fire dampers work by acting as a type of shutter which is designed to remain open under normal conditions, allowing the air to flow freely through the ducts.
