Ensure that your products comply with the current regulations of your target market.
Fire and smoke control dampers are essential elements in fire protection systems. Their main purpose is to prevent the spread of fire and to stop flames or hot gases from passing through ventilation ducts. Smoke control dampers are also part of the system that regulates temperature control and smoke evacuation. Manufacturers and importers of dampers are directly responsible for ensuring that their products work properly before their installation, and they must be able to show that their dampers comply with current regulations in order to be able to sell their products in target markets.
