Smoke-tight fire dampers
Safety is the most important factor in extreme working conditions, where a fire could put people’s life at risk unless necessary precautions are taken. Therefore it is essential that the equipment chosen to prevent fire progression within a ventilation ductwork is top-class.
Smoke and other toxic gases can be more dangerous than the fire itself, so it is important that the fire dampers also prevent smoke from spreading. Halton is a leading manufacturer of smoke-tight fire dampers.

- Low sound levels and pressure drop
- Cost-efficient commissioning due to plug-and-play technology
- Pressure-independent operation system
- Programmable CAV/VAV unit controllers
Halton’s intelligent and energy-efficient cabin ventilation systems can reduce cabin-ventilation energy demands by up to 35%.
Safety features of this equipment include:
- Low surface-temperature heating coils
- Tailored safety functions for airflow handling
- Double-safety (SW and HW) to avoid overheating
- Possibility to connect additional sensors in cabin units, e.g. pressure and fire detection sensors
- Network solution opens numerous possibilities to include additional safety features in cabin units according to customers’ needs, which can be operated, adjusted and controlled by human machine interface (HMI)
- Pressure-level handling in over-pressure areas
- Heating control for explosion-proof areas
