Regular operational checks (open-close control of the fire damper) enhance the safety of people, animals, property and the environment. Unless other requirements are stipulated – e. g. in the damper manufacturer's operating instructions – Belimo recommends the performance of monthly operational checks. Fire damper actuators from Belimo are designed in accordance with service life specifications contained in the technical datasheet for regular operational checks. Notes for regular operational checks can be found in the European Product Standard for Fire Dampers (EN 15650) under "Maintenance information".
In the case of motorised fire dampers, remote operational checks are also possible, thus lowering operating costs.
