RECEIVING AND HANDLING
Upon receiving dampers, check for both obvious and hidden damage. If damage is found, record all necessary information on the bill of lading and file a claim with the final carrier. Check to be sure that all parts of the shipment, including accessories, are accounted for. Dampers must be kept dry and clean. Indoor storage and protection from dirt, dust and the weather is highly recommended. Do not store at temperatures in excess of 100°F (38°C).

Due to continuing research, Greenheck reserves the right to change specifications without notice.

Pre-Installation Guidelines
The basic intent of a proper installation is to secure the fire damper in, not to, the opening in such a manner as to prevent distortion and disruption of damper operation. This is accomplished by allowing the fire damper in rated separation openings to expand and for the connecting duct to separate in the event of the collapse of the hanging system. The following items will aid in completing the damper installation in a timely and effective manner. 1) Check the schedules for proper damper locations within the building. Visually inspect the damper for damage and verify that the fusible link is in place or has not activated. Never install a fire damper without the proper UL approved fusible link in place. If damper is furnished with fusible link, visually inspect the link to verify its not missing or broken. Replace link as necessary. Lift or handle damper using sleeve or frame. Do not lift damper using blades. Damper has label on outside of sleeve indicating a ‘No Screw’ area. Do not install screws into this area as screws may interfere with unexposed blade linkage and prevent damper blades from opening and/or closing. Damper has label indicating position of damper and sleeve assembly in the wall. Install accordingly to comply with manufacturer’s appropriate UL Classification file number. Damper must be installed into duct or opening square and free of twist or other misalignment. Damper must not be squeezed or stretched into duct or opening. Out of square, racked, twisted or misaligned installations can 8) 6)

cause excessive leakage and/or torque requirements to exceed damper/actuator design. Damper must be kept clean and protected from dirt, dust and other foreign materials prior to and after installation. Examples of such foreign materials include but are not limited to: a) Mortar dust b) Drywall dust c) Firesafing materials d) Wall texture e) Paint overspray 7) Damper should be sufficiently covered as to prevent overspray if wall texturing or spray painting will be performed within 5 feet of the damper. Excessive dirt or foreign material deposits on damper can cause excessive leakage and/or torque requirements to exceed damper/ actuator design. Caulking is not necessary, nor is it allowed, between the damper sleeve and the wall or floor opening (annular space). However, caulking may be applied to the retaining angles. ACCESS: Suitable access (such that fusible links can be maintained, etc.) must be provided for damper inspection and servicing. Where it is not possible to achieve sufficient size access, it will be necessary to install a removable section of duct. (Refer to NFPA 90A).

1. CLEARANCES REQUIRED BETWEEN FIRE DAMPER SLEEVES AND WALL/FLOOR OPENINGS

Fire damper and sleeve assemblies expand during periods of intense heat. Therefore it is essential that openings in walls or floors be larger than the fire damper and sleeve assembly to allow for this expansion. Minimum clearances required between the outside of fire damper sleeve assemblies and wall/floor openings are: • alvanized steel fire dampers and sleeves: 1/8 in. G (3mm) per foot of damper width and 1/8 in. (3mm) per foot height with a minimum clearance of 1/4 in. (6mm) Recommended clearances, for width and/or height dimensions of: 1) 48 in. (1219mm) or less: 1/2 in. (13mm) clearance 2) More than 48 in. (1219mm) and 96 in. (2438mm) or less: 1 in. (25mm) clearance

3) More than 96 in. (2438mm): 11/2 in. (38mm) clearance • tainless steel fire dampers and stainless steel or S galvanized sleeves: 3/16 in. (4.8mm) per foot of damper width and height with a minimum clearance of 1/4 in. (6mm), maximum of 2 in. (51mm). Recommended clearances, for width and/or height dimensions of: 1) 48 in. (1219mm) or less: 3/4 in. (19mm) clearance 2) More than 48 in. (1219mm) and 96 in. (2438mm) or less: 1 1/2 in. (38mm) clearance 3) More than 96 in. (2438mm): 2 in. (51mm) clearance These are total clearances (ignoring fastener heads) and do not need to be equally spaced around the damper. Refer to Section 4 and Figure 6 for additional installation considerations.
