Fire and smoke dampers prevent fire and smoke from spreading through the building in the event of a fire.
Fire and smoke dampers are often overlooked by premises management despite them being a vital component of the buildings fire safety measures.
Alterations to buildings and building services such as ventilation ductwork can detrimentally affect the compliance of the fire dampers within the building. You can Rely on Fire Check to produce a detailed as fitted drawing of all your fire dampers and validate that their positioning remains compliant with British Standards and the fire strategy for the building.
In instances where defects are identified with existing dampers or there is a requirement for additional dampers to be installed our reporting system software allows us to take a digital image of the defect, pin it to a location on the building layout drawing and provide a text description of what the defect is. This software allows us to run reports for tender purposes and allows access to contractors pricing and undertaking defect repair so that they can upload photographic evidence of their repair work thus managing defect rectification.
Fire damper and smoke control consultants and auditors hold recognised qualifications that are industry recognised and are evidenced on each project.
