Fire and Smoke Damper Requirements

Fire dampers, smoke dampers, and combination fire smoke dampers may be hidden from view but they play an integral role in passive fire protection. Together fire and smoke dampers prevent fire and smoke from spreading through a facility’s ductwork. In most cases, they’re required to be inspected and tested every four years and every six years for healthcare facilities.
