  • 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.

In this course we’ll take a thorough look at louver components, types, options, and accessories and appropriate selection and proper sizing of louvers for a variety of climates, including WDR (wind-driven rain) and hurricane areas.
