Mechanical dampers are an essential component of facifacility management, as they control the airflow and temperature within a space. In this blog, we’ll discuss the benefits of installing mechanical dampers in your facility and the various types of dampers available.

What is a Mechanical Damper?

A mechanical damper is a device that is designed to regulate the air flow and temperature within a space. It is usually installed in the ductwork of a heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. The damper works by opening or closing to control the amount of air flow in the system, allowing the facility manager to precisely control the temperature and ventilation within the building.
