How Do Fire Dampers Work?
Fire dampers work through fusible links holding spring – loaded shutters open, when the temperature reaches around 72°C, the link fuses or melts and the shutter will drop to stop the hot air and smoke moving through the passage.
They play a very crucial role in a building’s fire safety systems, if they don’t activate then fire can spread with rapid and lethal results. The difference in a well maintained working fire damper and a badly maintained partially working system can often be between life and death.
