DA06 Guide to Fire, Smoke and Air Dampers using AS 1682 Parts 1 & 2

Published: 2021 | Pages: 41

DA06 steps through the entire damper life-cycle, from the fundamentals of the whys and hows of fire, smoke, and air dampers, through to individual performance testing, design, and selection considerations; the details of installation, labelling, and commissioning; and the inspection and maintenance of dampers through their operational lives. The focus is on the major compliance standards – AS 1668.1, AS 1682.1/.2 and AS 1851 – with sections of the manual dedicated to design, installation, commissioning, and maintenance topics.

This Design Application manual highlights the common issues that are encountered in noncompliant installations. It also outlines the allowable alternatives to fire dampers and identifies where they can and should be applied. DA06 originated as an AIRAH training course and is a must-read for anyone involved in the selection, installation, commissioning, maintenance, or certification of fire, smoke, and smoke exhaust air dampers in building HVAC systems.
