Guide to the installation of fire and smoke dampers.
HVCA Publications has launched a guide to good practice for the installation of fire and smoke dampers (DW/145. It highlights many of the basic principles in the design and installation process, while identifying the responsibilities that attach to the team as a whole.
The guide also identifies matters that must be addressed when fire and/or smoke dampers are to be installed in ventilation ductwork.
There are design checklists and a register of current industry-recognised fire-testing and assessment bodies.
