This document specifies test methods for smoke control dampers to assess their performance under elevated temperature or fire conditions.
It is of note that the smoke control damper to be tested could require testing to EN 1366-2 and that this is for consideration before carrying out these tests.
Smoke control damper tests are used to confirm that the furnace testing requirements of EN 12101-8 are met and EN 12101-8 is for consideration before carrying out these tests.
Smoke control dampers tested to this document are expected to be classified using EN 13501-4 and this document is expected to be considered before carrying out these tests.
To this end, this document is expected to be read in conjunction with EN 12101-8, EN 13501-4, EN 1366-2 and EN 1363-1, the latter giving further details for fire resistance testing.
For installation details, the requirements for smoke extraction ducts are for consideration and these are defined in EN 1366-8 and EN 1366-9.
