Our team of technicians have extensive experience to provide facility managers with fire and smoke inspection and repair services that meet all Joint Commission, NFPA, state and federal codes.

NFPA 80 – 188.8.131.52, 2010 Edition States: Each fire damper shall be inspected one year after installation and then the frequency shall be every six years for hospitals. MOB’s are required to be inspected every four years.
BRAND’s mission is to Protect Lives and the inspection and maintenance of Dampers is a critical component of this code. Our skilled technicians are ready to inspect and document your facilities dampers meeting the code set forth by NFPA 80.
The following must be performed during a fire damper inspection and smoke damper inspection:
An inoperable Damper must be Repaired without delay, per NFPA 80.
Getting inoperable smoke dampers or fire dampers fixed without delay is a code requirement. Therefore, once it is determined you have a non-compliant damper, it’s time to schedule the repair. BRAND is sensitive to the AHJ timeline and can manage the repair process.
We perform all functions relevant to damper repairs.
All fire damper repairs and smoke damper repairs are documented using our digital documentation system.
All damper inspections, damper repairs, labeling and decommissions adhere to the full NFPA codes. Reporting is generated in real time, digitally and uploaded into our server. Our reports are issued as a living document starting with each dampers first inspection. Each subsequent inspection or repair will be documented within this same report. This allows facility personnel and AHJ’s to see the history of each damper in one document; creating a more convenient and less confusing way to track each door during its useful life. We also can document your dampers on your life safety prints.
