Clarification of our role as smoke/fire damper suppliers:

In the absence of an Irish or a European standard dealing with installation, Safegard Systems has compiled an installation guide to deal with metal blade (UK type) and principally insulated blade (European type) dampers.

In Ireland, we are familiar with the metal blade dampers and lean on HVAC DW145 as a UK guide to good practice for the installation of fire and smoke dampers. In this guide it states that the damper should be fixed to the structure and supported independently of the connecting ductwork i.e. if the ductwork were to be removed from both sides of the damper it would continue to be an integral member of the barrier it protects.

We also lean on HVAC DW144 for UK sheet metal ductwork specifications. In this document it states that if the ductwork connection to a damper’s spigot or sleeve is either a flanged breakaway joint, secured with plastic (or similar) fixings, or a flexible joint then the connecting ductwork must be supported adjacent to this joint.

Where the actual on-site installation of a damper due to project specific restrictions or difficulties varies from the manufacturers fire tested methods, a compromise must be agreed by the design team and approval sought from the local building control authority, fire engineer or assigned certifier as per the Building Control Amendment Regulation 2014
