Fire, smoke, and combination dampers play a critical role in containing fire and smoke to help protect occupants and prevent costly damage.
These dampers act as “first responders” to a fire, instantly activating at the initial signal of heat. They interrupt the airflow of smoke, resist the passage of fire, and maintain the integrity of fire separation.
DeBra-Kuempel is one of only a select few contractors in Ohio and Kentucky certified by the Sheet Metal Industry International Certification Board and the Testing, Adjusting, and Balancing Bureau for the testing and repair of HVAC, fire, and life safety systems.
We’re trained to inspect, test, maintain, and repair fire and smoke dampers helping to ensure there is no damage or interference due to rust, bending, and misalignment which can restrict movement. We also evaluate your building’s equipment to identify optimal fire safety options.
Per NFPA 80 and NFPA 105, building owners are responsible for having routine inspections performed as required by local municipality ordinances and jurisdictions, such as the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
We can provide these required inspections, assess your equipment, and provide a detailed inspection report—to help maintain your facilities’ full compliance.
