Fire dampers are an essential part of commercial fire safety, but many people have never heard of them before. This is partially because fire dampers are very small, and they are usually placed in ducts so they aren’t seen by anyone walking past. However they are very important, as they prevent the spread of fire through the building.
Ducts are filled with air, so if there is a big fire it may get sucked into the ducts and move around the building. This is extremely dangerous, but fire dampers prevent this from happening. This is because a fire damper is a small link that can open and close, and it will automatically close if it gets too warm. This stops fire from travelling through the building, preventing further damage.
Fire dampers must be placed in all commercial buildings by law, and it is also the building owner’s responsibility to make sure that all fire dampers are in full working order. Legally this task must be completed every year, but it is recommended that fire dampers are tested more frequently in certain buildings. For instance, commercial kitchens should be tested often as grease creates more of a fire hazard.
We take fire safety maintenance very seriously. During every check we will;
Locate every single fire damper in the building.
Create new access points if it is difficult to access any of the fire dampers.
Test each fire damper to confirm they are all in full working order.
Remove and replace any fire dampers that are ineffective.
Clean all of the fire dampers to prolong their life.
Lube all of the fire dampers to reduce the chance of future issues.
Reset all of the fire dampers so they are ready for use.
Follow current COVID-19 regulations from the British government to prevent the spread of the disease.
We also provide duct cleaning services in London. All duct cleaning is done in accordance with the current standards set by BESA and BSRIA, as all of our employees are trained to the highest level. So if you want the job to be completed by professionals, you’re in the right place!
This guidance was created to ensure that all ducts are appropriately cleaned to make sure the air in commercial buildings is safe to breathe. Over time dust can build up inside of the ducts in your building, and this dust is pushed back into the building with recycled air. This can cause a range of health issues, including asthma and a severe cough, so it is a legal requirement to make sure the ducts in your building are cleaned regularly.
Our team use a variety of extraction measures to ensure that all of the ducts and the vents in your building are completely clean. Our experts will also fix any issues that they find while they are cleaning, which will help to prolong the lifespan of the ducts in your building (which means you are less likely to spend thousands replacing the vents in the future).
There are a few things that you can do to help prolong the life of the ducts in your building. Dust and debris build-up is normal, but installing an air flow system will help to push dust out of the building.
However it is important to note that the ducts and vents will still need cleaning when they get dirty, and this task is time-consuming and often dangerous. Doing it yourself could result in injury or damage to the ducts, so the task is best left to professionals. Our team will be able to complete the job quickly and efficiently, and they will also fix any damage (such as a broken duct panel) as they go.
