Keep your building safe with effective AOV systems
An Automatic Open Ventilation (AOV) system is an essential tool in fire safety, designed to minimize smoke inhalation during a fire. It regulates smoke ventilation, maintaining a layer of clear air above the floor during a fire, which helps in reducing the accumulation of smoke and heat.
Smoke poses the most significant threat during a fire, capable of engulfing a building within minutes. AOVs play a crucial role in keeping emergency exits and access areas clear, safeguarding individuals from the dangers of smoke inhalation, and ensuring unobstructed evacuation routes.
AOV systems come in various forms, such as automated roof hatches, glazed or metal louvres, wall-mounted corridor vents, automatic vent windows, and internal smoke shaft damper doors. Utilized together, these systems also contribute to lowering temperatures in a building on fire, further enhancing safety measures.Get in Touch
