Smoke and heat control systems. Smoke control dampers

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : June 2011
Conformity to regulation : Designated



This European Standard applies to smoke control dampers, placed on the market and intended to operate as part of a pressure differential system or smoke and heat control system. This standard specifies requirements and gives reference to the test methods defined for smoke control dampers and their associated components, such as actuators which are intended to be installed in such systems in buildings. It also provides for the evaluation of conformity of these products to the requirements of this standard. Furthermore, provision on marking and information on installation and maintenance of these products are also given. This European Standard distinguish between two categories of smoke control dampers, i.e. single compartment smoke control dampers and multi-compartment fire resisting smoke control dampers. Smoke control dampers covered by this European Standard can be installed into smoke control system ducts or onto the ducts´ surface. They can be installed also into a wall, floor or ceiling/roof elements or onto the surface of these elements. To avoid duplication, reference is made to a variety of other standards. To this end, this standard is to be read in conjunction with EN 13501-4, prEN 1366-10 and EN 1366-2, for details of the furnace testing. This standard does not consider in detail the detrimental and/or corrosive effects that may be caused by process chemicals present in the atmosphere, which are drawn through the system intentionally or inadvertently.
