Automatic Opening Vents




Automatic Opening Vents

An Automatic Opening Vent (AOV) is primarily used to control the ventilation of smoke from a building fire.  When a detector or call point is triggered, the AOV control system will open actuators, windows or vents to clear smoke out of the area that has been triggered to assist people leaving the building.   Automatic vents are a standard requirement for all new multiple-occupancy buildings, hospitals, schools, but they can also be retro fitted to almost any window to increase fire security in commercial properties.

DS Securities supply AOV equipment that complies with Construction Products Regulations, and is CE marked against EN:12101. We provide a full range of equipment, from single-zone AOV solutions that operate all attached actuators on a one shot basis to multi-zone systems where individual operation of each floor and/or window is required, and incorporate plug in zone cards to allow for future system expansion. A range of actuators is available for most window and door apertures from 380mm to 860mm reach as standard, including chain racks and linear units, and other ancillaries include auto reset detectors and trigger points that provide integration into building control systems.  Whatever your needs and budget, DS Securities will deliver the solution.
