In recognition of the need for fire safety in modern building design, Fläkt Woods manufactures an extensive range of high quality circular and rectangular fire dampers, including the ever-popular ETPR-17 (Manual Fire Damper) MFD.

Commenting on the product range, Allan Hurdle, Managing Director, Fläkt Woods said: “With fire safety paramount to residential and commercial building design, contractors and installers rely on the availability of tried and tested products such as the ETPR-17 MFD fire damper. So, by purchasing through our network of approved distributors, our customers are guaranteed high quality Fläkt Woods products, without compromising the design of their ducting and fire safety system.”

Fläkt Woods’ ETPR-17 MFD circular fire dampers are utilised as closing devices for preventing the spread of fire in ventilation ducts between compartments. The model has been tested for fire resistance according to BS 476, retaining its integrity for 130 minutes.

The ETPR-17 MFD is suitable for horizontal and vertical operation, with ducting diameters ranging from 100mm to 500mm. For ease of installation, the unit casing has an integral mounting flange which enable the units to be fitted directly to the building fabric. Plus, for quick and simple maintenance, the ETPR-17 MFD features an external handle to allow installers to see when the damper has closed. This makes it simple to reset from the outside of the ductwork, removing the inconvenience of access doors or ductwork modifications.
