“Normal use of the ventilation system gathers an accumulation of contamination on the fire damper and its operational parts. This must be removed, and the fire damper tested regularly to ensure that it operates as designed.”

If your building has a ventilation system over 30 years old there is a good chance it is not fire compliant. Contact us today to discuss our services.
About Fire Compliant Ventilation
Ventilation is a simple concept to understand, but what is fire compliant ventilation? The air ducts in your ventilation system are often covered with waste that travels through the air. Because of this excessive debris combined with the heat that is consumed, the ventilation becomes vulnerable to catching fire.
This can be a huge risk to the safety of the people working in the building. Therefore, fire compliant ventilation is a special ventilation system for areas which are of a particular high risk.
Why You Need Fire Compliant Ventilation in Essex and London by Athena Air
Apart from the obvious reason of safety many people are hesitant in installing a fire compliant ventilation system. If you’re a resident of Essex and London, you must be aware that the law requires you to have it. Before your building is open to the public, you should hire a professional to confirm that your ventilation is fire compliant.
In 1997, Fire Precautions Regulations mandated workplaces in Essex and London to have fire compliant ventilation. This included performing a risk assessment for fire safety on the ventilation systems. In case of any failures, the ventilation system must be corrected. In 2005, the rule was reformed through the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order. This simply eliminated the requirement of a fire safety certificate. However, all commercial buildings in London and Essex are still required to have fire compliant ventilation and perform risk assessments. This is still mandatory by law and in case of non-compliance, you will be subject to litigation.
