Backdraft Dampers

What is the difference between a Backdraft Damper and a Pressure Relief Damper?

Backdraft dampers are designed to allow airflow in one direction and prevent reverse airflow. Pressure Relief dampers have an adjustable open trigger pressure and close upon a decrease in the differential pressure across the damper. Pressure relief dampers also prevent backdraft air flow.
