Fire Life Safety is at the core of a building’s design and is a critical component in providing a safe environment for all occupants. NFPA 80 is the standard which outlines installation and testing/inspection of fire and smoke dampers.
NFPA 80 states that fire damper inspection/testing shall occur:
- After initial installation, an operational test shall be conducted
- 1 year after installation and initial acceptance
- Every 4 years after the “1-year” inspection
Exception: in Hospitals the frequency will be every 6 years following the “1-year” inspection.
