Penetration seals form a critical element of the fire safety strategy of buildings,  preventing spread of fire and smoke in a fire condition.

The importance of fire stopping service penetrations in a fire barrier cannot be overstated, when installed correctly it can mean occupants within a building can leave a burning building safely.

At Recom Solutions we take our responsibility to building users seriously, we install premium products such as Rockwool, Protecta, Promat and Hilti fire stopping products these are installed to manufacturer’s instructions by our teams, who are trained at our dedicated training centre.

During fire stopping works, our trained team of PFP experts will install or apply products such as ablative coated fire batts, intumescent acoustic sealant, high expansion sealant, intumescent wraps, pipe collars and fire compound load bearing floors, to name a few.

Fire Damper and Smoke Damper: Service and Maintenance

When it comes to preventing the spread of fire, smoke and toxic gases through buildings, dampers play a critical role, proper installation and maintenance is crucial.

The main purpose of a fire damper is to prevent flames from crossing a fire barrier. They’re installed near the wall or floor, as appropriate, and are effectively a part of the barrier they protect the integrity of. Fire dampers respond to heat, when the temperature reaches a set point the damper slams shut.

Smoke dampers respond to the detection of smoke, and close automatically. They can also be activated remotely. They resist the passage of smoke, toxic gases and air through a fire barrier.

Compliance requires that fire damper testing is carried out annually as a minimum. A fire damper test requires a visual inspection of the fire damper and a drop test prior to resetting. If defects are identified during the course of fire damper testing, our PFP team can support you in remedying the issues.

5 critical things to always check when installing or inspecting a fire door


Look for a label, a plug or similar marking to show that it’s certificated & follow the instructions. IMPORTANT: All ironmongery such as locks, latches, closer’s & hinges, MUST be CE marked & compatible with the door leaf’s certification.


Altering the door for glazing apertures and air transfer grilles will make certification VOID.

Gaps & Seals

Check the gap around the
door frame is constant
and around 3 to 4 mm & CE Marked hinges are firmly fixed with no missing screws. Ensure seals are fitted at the top and sides of the door.


Check that the closer shuts the door onto the latch from any position – check from 75mm from the closed position.


Ensure the door closes correctly around all parts of the frame.
