Automatic Vents - AOV's

Smoke Control Systems, commonly known as AOV's are available in many types of systems but all have the same purpose in mind.  

The purpose of smoke and heat exhaust ventilation (SHEV) systems is to lead smoke and heat out of a burning building, whilst keeping escape corridors and stairs free of smoke for the safe escape of the buildings occupants, and to allow clearer access for fire fighters.

     Of fire related fatalities:- “90% of fatalities are caused by smoke poisoning from fires within buildings”
