Fire & Smoke Protection with Life Safety Dampers

Description: Compartmentalization is a critical feature of a building’s passive fire protection system. To ensure compartmentalization during a fire, ductwork that penetrates rated walls or partitions requires the use of life safety dampers to restrict the passage of fire and smoke. This course reviews the three types of life safety dampers, their performance and resistance ratings, their functional options, and proper installation practices and guidelines.
