What should I look for?
You will see manufacturers declare performance with a classification like this...
E 90 (Vew i‹—›o) S 1000 C10000 HOT 400/30 AA multi
In general, a multiple compartment damper, with the Hot400/30 classification will give the most flexibility, control and peace of mind; however, every project is different and we recommend talking to us to help you find the right damper solution for your project.
About CE Marking
CE marking requires a product manufacturer to declare the product performance characteristics in a ‘Declaration of Performance’ document (DoP). This document is verified by a third party – the notified body - as a guarantee of product performance and conformity to the test standard.
Smoke Control Dampers will be CE marked to fulfil the requirements of EN 12101-8, classified to EN 13501-4, fire tested to EN 1366-10 (and 1366-2 for multiple compartment dampers).
