For installation in smoke extraction shafts

FIPRO® fire dampers are used in heating, ventilation and air conditioning ducts to prevent the spread of fire. Fire dampers simultaneously inhibit the distribution of smoke in the ducts – similar to smoke dampers.

In the event of an unusual rise in temperature, the fire damper closes. This is usually controlled by a thermocouple that melts at higher temperatures. Springs then close the damper blades.

FIPRO® fire dampers can also close, for example, by an electrical signal received from a fire detection system. The regulations and fire testing regimes vary from country to country, which can lead to different designs and applications.

Damper design

The FIPRO® damper forms a single-leaf room closure in the design of a door with high mechanical functional safety. A high degree of leakage and smoke tightness is achieved through the use of all-round sealing materials. The surrounding visible frame is always the same width. The door hinge can be positioned on the left, right or bottom.

Positive pressure helps to displace smoke.

In the event of a fire, a pressure differential smoke protection system (RDA) first switches on the ventilation system. This introduces additional air into the supply air shaft and creates a slight overpressure in the staircase. At the same time, the smoke extraction damper of the affected floor opens automatically.

If people now flee from the utilisation unit of the fire floor into the staircase, the overpressure becomes effective. The overpressure pushes the smoke gases back, allowing them to escape via the smoke extraction flaps into the exhaust shaft. This keeps the stairwell smoke-free and safe to use.


A staircase with RDA eliminates the need for a second staircase. This makes more building space available, which can be used as an office or living space, for example.
