Smoke Control Dampers - Application

Naturally, all projects have different requirements to fulfil and should be evaluated individually. Here we describe a very typical setup where we use a dedicated damper control panel, linked to the BMS, fire alarm or smoke detection system, to provide automatic activation (AA) of the smoke control dampers in accordance with the cause and effect. Each project differs and you should engage with specialists early on in the project to determine the ideal solution.
