Following the introduction of the new Construction Products Regulation (CPR) on the 1st July 2013, Actionair, a brand of Swegon Air Management Limited, offer a comprehensive range of CE marked fire dampers together with approved installation methods.

Under the CPR, manufacturers of construction products which are covered by harmonised European standards (hENs) are required to affix the CE mark and make a Declaration of Performance (DoP) for their products.

CE marked fire dampers must fully comply with the product standards: EN 15650:2010 Ventilation for Buildings - Fire Dampers and compliance is verified through assessment by a "Notified Body".

Fire/Shield Dampers are designed for application in normal dry filtered air systems. If exposed to fresh air intakes and/or inclement conditions the damper should be subject to a planned inspection programme. Any specialists and/or aggressive applications (e.g. swimming pools) may invalidate our warranty, please refer to Actionair Sales Office.

All Fire/Shield Dampers should be tested by competent persons on completion of the installation and at regular intervals not exceeding two years.

Spring operated fire dampers should be tested annually and fire dampers situated in dust laden and similar atmospheres should be tested much more frequently, at intervals suited to the degree of pollution.
