As the industry leader in the inspection of fire and smoke damper inspections LSS offers a complete fire and smoke damper survey and inspection services for the entire Canadian market. The fire and smoke damper survey will help identify all of the dampers in your facility and the inspection will help ensure compliance with The National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) Codes 80, 105, and NFPA 101 (in the provinces that have adopted 101), as well as the National Building Code Section 3.1.8 and the National Fire Code 2.2.2.
After the survey and inspection of your facility’s fire and smoke dampers there often are dampers that did not pass inspection and are inoperable. LSS offers fire and smoke damper repair services that include actuator replacement, damper repairs and damper installations. Once the repair work is performed, LSS will re-inspect the dampers to ensure compliance with the Canadian NBC and NFC, which state that “if closures become damaged they shall be replaced”.
