CE marking requirements will be explained along with how testing and installation of fire and smoke dampers are affected and the implications of the overall design to installation process.
Benefits to User & Business
Essential education for everyone involved in the design to installation process, including main contractors, M&E consultants, M&E contractor, ductwork Installer, building control, clerk of works and the client.
Updates on changes to current legislative requirements, ensuring awareness of potential personal liability implications. A legally compliant damper installation will prevent the need for costly post installation approval and save valuable money across the project.

CE marking for fire and smoke dampers and all Category 1 life safety products became law on 1st July 2013, meaning manufacturers now have to conform to Harmonised European Standard for the testing of their products, meaning on site installation should be exactly as per the test. We will cover the installation of fire and smoke dampers in accordance with DW145, and show how new testing requirements of CE marking will also influence the installation of dampers.
Details will be discussed about the implications in the design to installation process to show how a coordinated approach by all parties is essential in ensuring compliant damper installation. Possible legal implications of incorrect installation will be discussed along with potential personal liability prosecutions.
