Fire and Smoke Damper Inspection Company Adds Damper Repairs to List of Services

Louisville, KY, December 13, 2008 --( Life Safety Services (LSS), the National leader in fire and smoke damper inspection services, announced today that they will provide damper repair services as a compliment to their fire and smoke damper inspection services.

According to the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) Life Safety Code®, if the damper is deemed inoperable through mandatory inspection, repairs should begin as soon as possible. To better accommodate their clients’ needs and to ensure compliancy with the code, LSS will offer actuator replacement and retrofit of both electric and pneumatic actuators along with the ability to make adjustments to dampers such as correcting linkages, bindings, tracks and tabs.

“Year after year we’ve had such a call for this service from our existing clients who have been unable to find service providers who can perform quality repairs”, said Craig Rutledge, owner of Life Safety Services. “The ability to have one contractor who can specialize in the repair and the inspection of fire and smoke dampers in one service will offer great value to our customers.”

Life Safety Service’s technicians are extremely familiar with the mechanics of fire and smoke dampers based on their experience through inspection. To further enhance this knowledge, their techs went through extensive in-house training as well as damper actuator repair training through major manufacturers, such as Belimo and Lloyds. “Few companies can bring to the client the mix of training and field experience that Life Safety Services can offer”, said Rutledge.

In 2004 Craig Rutledge and Jack Meredith saw an opportunity to put their expertise in the fire and smoke damper inspection business to work by forming LSS. By specializing in fire and smoke damper inspections, LSS provides inspection services to facilities at an affordable price. Life Safety Services is has become one of the top fire and smoke damper inspection companies by providing outstanding customer service and maintaining a staff of highly trained project managers and technicians.
