Fire, smoke, and combination fire/smoke dampers installed in barriers and fire separations are designed to resist fire and smoke spread through and around the ductwork of heating, ventilation, or air conditioning systems.  When correctly installed to the tested and listed system specs and manufacturer's installation instructions, provide critical compartmentalization as part of a complete passive fire protection system.  NFPA 80 specifies that fire, smoke, and fire/smoke dampers be tested at commissioning, then again one-year after service, and then every 6 years in hospitals and every 4 years in all other occupancies. Fire and Smoke Damper Contractors provide documentation and inventory, inspection, survey, installation, and repair services for this critical piece of passive fire protection systems.
