USCG-APPROVED SLIMLINE A-60 FIRE DAMPER IS NOW AVAILABLE
The bar on safety aboard is once again raised by Delta “T” Systems.
Delta “T” Systems, global leader in marine ventilation, has unveiled its new Slimline Fire Damper, the narrowest in the market at only 4.25″ deep. It’s USCG approved for use in penetrating Class A-0, A-15, A-30 and A-60 bulkheads and decks, and Wheelmark certified under the EU Marine Equipment Directive (MED).
Built in the USA of 100% 316 stainless steel, the patent pending Slimline Fire Damper is an innovative, yet robust design. All the components are thicker and stronger than the competition, making the device uniquely durable. Its overlapping blades rotate in parallel for strength and have a patented locking mechanism for keeping the damper closed during a fire event. Its thin profile provides boatbuilders the ability to conserve machinery room space and adapt the unit to existing areas.
Its thermal tripping device is mounted on a separate bracket. When the machinery space reaches 165° F, the sensor trips the actuator, closing the damper. It’s manually resettable so it won’t need to be replaced in the event of unintended exposure to excess heat. It also comes with a test switch to check functionality when completing inspections.
The failsafe actuator produces 180 in-lb of closing torque, powered by 24-240V AC or 24-125V DC. The unit has dry contact outputs for open/closed readouts. It fits an NEMA2 IP54 ZP type 2 enclosure and is CE approved.
“To support the demand that this new damper is generating, we’ve introduced new manufacturing capabilities and equipment,” said Lynn Oien, Delta “T” Systems president. The company recently hired production manager Tony Matherly, who has spearheaded the manufacturing initiative.
Order turnaround times are extremely quick due to the 28 standard sizes from 9″ x 9″ to 46.75″ x 46.75″. Unlimited custom individual sizes are available up to 46.75″ x 46.75″. They come fully assembled and ready to install.
