Know How the Fire Code Update Affects You
Fire Dampers are passive fire protection mechanisms used in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) ductwork. They are designed to prevent smoke and fire from spreading through ventilation ducts. They are installed in the ductwork located in the ceilings, walls and floors of your building. A typical condominium or apartment block over 3 stories that has a hallway or stairwell ventilation will have multiple Fire Dampers.
The Office of the Fire Commission of Manitoba (OFC) now requires annual location and inspections of Fire Dampers in apartment blocks and condominiums. It’s important to have a report completed by licensed and certified inspector for your insurance company.
