Colt Defender is a motorized fire damper suitable for use in all types of HVAC ductwork. It has been designed to prevent the passage of fire from one area to another.
Defender is operated by the fire detection system, with the additional back-up of a thermal link which closes the damper at a pre-determined temperature. In the event of a fire, the local Colt control panel closes the Defender in the specific duct. When all clear the damper will motor open.
24 volt DC motors are recommended, so that a simple battery back up system can incorporated to ensure the damper operates in the event of a mains failure.
