AirCare provides smoke damper inspections and fire damper Inspections  in New England for Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont.

Regularly scheduled smoke damper inspections and fire damper Inspections are an important part of every fire safety maintenance plan to make sure Dampers are working properly.

If a building is equipped with Fire, Smoke, or combination Smoke/Fire Dampers, inspections must be done to check Damper and latch operation. All Dampers must be tested, fusible links must be removed if applicable, and Dampers must be able to close. If latches are provided, they must be checked and lubricated if necessary.
