AMCA Standard 500 provides a reasonable basis for testing and rating dampers. Testing to AMCA 500 is performed under a certain set of laboratory conditions. This does not guarantee that other conditions do not occur in the actual environment where dampers must operate.

Designs should provide a reasonable safety factor for damper performance by selecting at some point below damper leakage and pressure drop system requirements.
