IFD Aero Explained

The new IFD Aero is the next generation blade design* for intumescent fire dampers (IFDs). In fact, Kilargo’s new design is the first and only Intumescent Fire Damper that has been specifically developed for the HVAC industry. A new blade means new benefits: better building airflow and energy efficiency, plus total confidence for architects, specifiers and installers.

Fire dampers are positioned within a building’s airstream their entire life, potentially  causing an unwelcome obstruction to airflow. With IFD Aero, air cuts straight across the  new blade design reducing airflow resistance and noise levels in everyday use. It also  paves the way for increased energy savings compared with traditional fire damper  designs, both intumescent and other types.

The state-of-the-art design was developed by the research arm of Kilargo, Australia’s  leading provider of IFDs, and is the result of specific HVAC industry feedback and  consultation with, mechanical engineers, fire safety consultants, architects and builders. Utilizing state of the art material technology.
