NOTE!
The Halton FDI fire damper's CE approval is valid when the installation flange filled to the edges with fire prevention mastic on site. For futher information, see tab Documents / Installation.

The CE approval is also valid when the fire break grouting is made by Halton factory  for FDI fire damper installation flange (FB).

Electric actuator (B1, B2, S3, S4)

In the electric actuator system when a signal from building automation reaches the actuator or the fuse reacts to a rise in temperature (72 °C) power is switched off and the spring closes the blade automatically. When the supply power is turned back on (e.g. during testing), the blade opens automatically. The actuator is equipped with built-in limitswitches for both open and closed position.

The Halton FDI fire damper with 24V power supply is recommended to be connected to the Halton Safe fire damper management system (HSM). This system enables the use of smoke detectors in ductwork or room spaces. The Halton FDI fire damper can also be connected to other commonly used building automation systems.

Actuator options
B1         BLF24 T HL,  power supply AC/DC 24 V,  72 ºC  (for sizes 100 -  400)
B2         BLF230 T HL, power supply AC 230 V,  72 ºC     (for sizes 100 -  400)
S3         GNA 126.1 T, power supply AC/DC 24 V, 72 ºC   (for sizes 500 and 630)
S4         GNA 326.1 T, power supply AC 230 V, 72 ºC       (for sizes 500 and 630)

Manual actuator (MA)

The fuse reacts to the rise of temperature (72 ºC as default) and the spring closes the blade automatically. It needs to be opened manually.
Optional fuse release temperatures 50 and 100 °C are also available for the manual actuator.
 

Alternatively, the damper may be released by release systems that are available as accessories to the manual actuator:

  • Solenoid operation, providing a possibility for electric signal release (S1,S2)
  • Electromagnetic release (EM)
  • Pneumatic release with pressurised gas (PN)

 

Solenoid operation (S1, S2)

The manual fire damper can be released using solenoid, by switching on the solenoid operating voltage. The release can be initiated by e.g. a smoke detector, limitswitch, pressure switch or similar, which connects the power supply via e.g. an auxiliary relay. 

 Option S1 S2
 Power supply 24 VDC 230 VAC
 Power consumption (design value) 15 W 40 VA
 Enclosure class (minimum) IP20 IP20
 Operating Time Ratio ED 100% 100%

  

Electromagnetic operation (EM) 

The manual fire damper stays open when the electrical circuit is closed. The fire damper is shut by opening the circuit.
NOTE: Interruption of the power supply closes the damper. Uninterrupted power supply (e.g., a battery backup system) is recommended.
 

 Option EM
 Power supply 24 VDC
 Power consumption (design value) 15 W
 Enclosure class (minimum) IP20
 Operating Time Ratio ED 100%

 

 Pneumatic release (PN) 

The manual fire damper can be released by a pneumatic  release, connected to e.g. a fire extiguishing system (e.g. CO2). When the system is activated, pressure acting on the pneumatic cylinder releases the spring, closing the fire damper. The actuator is suitable for common pressure levels used in fire extiguishing  systems. The required pressure impulse for the sylinder is approximately 200 kPa.

 

Limit switch (MS)

The limit switch indicates damper blade position, sending an impulse to other remote-release fire dampers if the blade is closed, tripping an alarm in the monitoring system and/or stops / starts fans, depending on the designed system. The limit switch has no influence on the thermal fuse or release mechanism. 

Function

The Halton FDI is a circular fire damper, which prevents fire and smoke from spreading in the ductwork of ventilation systems between fire comparments.

The Halton FDI is approved for vertical (ve) and horizontal (ho)  installation in heavy and light-weight structures fulfilling the fire resistance class EI 60 (ve ho i <-> o) S  requirements. It is also approved for horizontal (ho) installation in concrete floors/ceilings to fulfill the fire resistance class E 90 (ho i <-> o) S  requirements.

The fire damper is made of fireproof materials. Once the fire damper has closed, the double sealing closes the duct tightly, effectively preventing the spread of fire gases through the ventilation ductwork. The flexible silicone seal is tightening the blade at lower temperatures, while the graphite mass seal expands to insulate the system at temperatures above 150 ºC.

The fire damper is equipped with either electric (supply power 24V or 230V) or manual actuator. All models are also equipped with a thermal fuse and a visual position indicator.

For further information, see Accessories.

Installation

The Halton FDI fire damper is installed on concrete or masonry walls and ceilings and on lightweight walls.

See installation video from link below:
Halton FDI installation

An opening is always left in the separating element for the casing of the product to be led through the structure. The maximum diameter of the installation hole is the fire damper diameter D + 20 mm.

To make installation easier, all products come with an installation/casting frame, which is used to fasten the fire damper to the wall surface or the steel frame of the plasterboard wall.

The installation is finished by filling the casting frame from the front of the device with a gypsum-based firestop certificated fire break compound that is tested for use for this purpose (GBG from Palokatkomiehet Oy; CP 637 from Hilti; or FIREBREAK COMPOUND from Würth). During installation, the fire damper and actuator must be protected with, e.g. a plastic cover.

When the Halton FDI fire damper has a factory made pre fire break grouting (FB), it can be installed to a lightweight panel walls by using four suitable screws to a steel frame or a wooden joist. The fire damper can be installed to the masonry structures by using four 8 mm steel wedge anchor. Mounting screw holes have to be filled with the fire break grouting.

 

 

 
For futher information, see  Documents / Installation. 

The correct operation of the fire damper must be ensured both before and after grouting. Setting of the damper is performed from outside the device.

Detailed installation instructions, as well as an installer's installation certificate form, are supplied with each product. See also the Documents / Installation Instructions.

Installation of modules

Two fire dampers can be installed using the same screws on one side such that the lip of the installation frame of the lower damper is either flattened or removed, and the casting is spread uninterrupted from one outside end to the other. See the installation instructions.

The manual fire damper can be equipped with a bipolar limitswitch (MS) which indicates the closing of the shutoff blade. The limitswitch has potential-free points (no = normally open and nc = normally closed), which can be used to control other fire dampers equipped with an electric release, e.g., triggering an alarm in the fire suppression system. The maximum operating voltage and current is 400 V, 10 A.

Servicing

A manual Halton FDI fire damper can be reset after the fuse temperature has fallen below the release temperature. If the shut off blade does not lock, the fuse is worn out and must be replaced. The fuse can be changed from outside the fire damper.

The fuse of a fire damper equipped with an electric actuator must be replaced if the fuse has been released because of a rise in temperature in the duct.

To ensure proper operation of fire dampers, they should be inspected regularly. The minimum recommended inspection period is one year or according to the building code It is recommended that the fire damper is connected to automatic fire damper management system HSM (operating voltage 24-VAC).

Upon failure during testing of the fire damper, maintenance service shall be ordered from an authorised Halton representative to ensure appropriate operation of the product.
