In an event of a fire, smoke and fire dampers should be functional and in good condition. Our team of experienced Fire Damper testers are working relentlessly to ensure these vital appliances are not compromised or damaged.
To ensure fire safety measures are not compromised or damaged, fire dampers should be tested at regular intervals not exceeding 2 years. Spring-operated fire dampers should be tested every 12 months and at greater frequencies, if they are placed in a dust-laden environment. Programming annual fire damper testing irrespective of the type of dampers within the building every 12 months is seen as common good practice. This is applicable to all buildings within England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and especially important in buildings that pose a sleep risk.
JC Watson are involved in making sure both mechanical and Automated fire and smoke dampers for Facilities management companies, NHS trusts, End users and Local Authorities are functional and compliant. We do that by testing fire dampers to BS9999 standards in partnership with our national team of experienced Fire Damper testers. We require all of our Fire Damper testers to undergo CPD certified competency training as we strongly feel only experienced professionals should be in charge of handling such vital appliances.
In addition to carrying out BS9999 testing to Fire Dampers, we offer replacement and remediation services for damaged dampers nationwide. Contact us for more information.
