Fire Dampers, Smoke Dampers and Air Dampers - What is their purpose? How are they different? - What you should know!

 

A 90 minute Webinar presented by Brett Fairweather

Fire, smoke and air dampers form part of a buildings' smoke hazard management system

This system is a required life safety measure that utilises the buildings' mechanical services to control the effects of fire and smoke within a building. It is essential that these dampers operate and perform correctly, when required, to minimise the impact of fire and smoke to occupants while evacuating the building.

 

This webinar is aimed at improving the understanding of key operational performance criteria of fire dampers, smoke dampers and air dampers that should be identified and considered, to determine if the required system operation and performance is being achieved.

If you design, install, certify, routinely service or assess the operation and performance of these dampers, you will find this webinar very informative.

 

This webinar will cover and explain:

  • Why do we need dampers and where are they included?
  • What are the 'rules' for using dampers?
  • The three main damper types (Fire, Smoke & Air) and when is each necessary?
  • Provide examples of each type
  • Explain subducts (as an alternative to some fire damper applications)
  • Explain what is "FRL" is?
  • Ordering and installing dampers correctly
  • Labelling, baseline data and commissioning records

 

The webinar presenter is:  Brett Fairweather

There are many requirements within the National Construction Code that mandate the installation of smoke control systems within buildings for occupant life safety. However, the activation of these smoke control systems rely on the detection of a fire by-and subsequent signal from-a Fire Detection and Alarm System (FDAS).

 

For some buildings the activation of the smoke control systems, can be achieved by a required AS 1670.1 FDAS and detection layout, which has smoke detectors installed within almost every room in the building.

 

However, in many buildings the activation of the smoke control systems is by a smoke detection layout that requires detectors to be installed at specific locations near lifts, exit doors, etc and within the circulation space of the building.

 

To ensure that the required protection is compliant, you should have a very good understanding of the NCC and Australian Standard design requirements for smoke detectors that initiate smoke control systems.

Fire-Isolated Stair Pressurisation Systems inc. Fire-Isolated Ramps & Passageways Webinar

 

A 90 minute Webinar presented by Brett Fairweather.

The pressurisation of required fire-isolated stairways, ramps or passageways forms part of a buildings' smoke hazard management system. These systems are, or form part of, a life safety measure that is mandatory for many buildings. They form part of buildings' mechanical services to control the effects of fire and smoke within a building.

 

These systems assist with minimising an occupant's exposure to the effects of a fire while they are evacuating the building. Therefore, it is essential that these pressurisation systems operate and perform correctly, when required, to minimise the impact of fire and smoke to occupants while evacuating the building.

 

This webinar is aimed at improving your understanding of the key operational and performance requirements/criteria of these pressurisation systems.
