Function test for fire dampers: Experts specify clear requirements

Article on the publication of VDMA Standard 24000 by Dr J├╝rgen Wildeboer in the magazine FeuerTrutz.

In the recent past, the subject of functional testing of fire dampers has repeatedly led to questions, discussions and, in some cases, uncertainty. 

As a manufacturer, we have always attached great importance to communicating the legal requirements and the need for fire dampers to be tested regularly and in practice. We therefore very much welcome the fact that the VDMA (German Engineering Federation) has now published Standard 24000, which contains all the important details on the subject of functional testing.

We also recommend that you watch our video on this subject if you would like to see what is involved in carrying out a legally compliant functional test.
