Did you know that we offer fire damper maintenance in healthcare? This covers healthcare facilities, hospitals, surgeries and more.
Fire dampers are vital safety systems that are installed within ducting ventilation. They are designed to prevent the spread of smoke or fire throughout a building. Our robust system allows our clients to analyse the dampers inspected and maintained. They can also track both historic and future inspection dates. This offers a piece of mind that every fire damper has been inspected and maintained. It can therefore can be replied upon in case of a fire emergency.
As per the BS 9999 requirements, it is best practice for good fire safety that fire dampers are regularly tested and maintained by professionals. The BS 9999 states that all fire dampers should be tested by a competent person at regular intervals. These regular intervals must not exceed one year. If there are any faults of damages seen on the fire damper checks, then this must be reported. Then it must be repaired or replaced immediately.
Here at Jensen Security and Fire Safety, we can offer you our healthcare fire damper maintenance service. Our healthcare fire safety professionals will check your fire dampers for you on an annual basis. They will then repair or replace any damaged parts immediately and professionally.
During our healthcare fire damper maintenance tests, we will complete an inventory of all dampers that will be tested. All manual resettable dampers will be released to ensure they are in good working order. We will inspect the fusible link for any damage. The fire damper will then be cleaned, opened and reset. We will also review the previous inspection report to ensure all modifications have been made and any outstanding remedial actions have been completed.
The enactment of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, it is the responsibility of the employer to maintain the fire safety systems. The employer also needs to ensure that arrangements are made for all fire dampers to be tested by a competent person on completion of the fire damper installation and at least once a tear. It is also the responsibility of the employer to arrange for damaged or faulty parts to be repaired or replaced immediately.
