How does an AOV system work?

On detection of smoke the AOVs, louvres or doors via actuators or magnetic locks will automatically open. With manual call points at selected locations within the building, fire fighters can also override the system if required.

A central control panel is linked to all the devices and is battery backed in case of mains failure. The timing for opening all the vents is of great importance in order to enable people to escape quickly.

What are the benefits of a Mechanical Smoke Ventilation System?

Using AOVs reduces the amount of smoke and heat contained in a building during a fire. This benefits residents or workers inside, as they are likely to inhale less harmful smoke during evacuation.

Enhanced visibility is created when an AOV is present in a smoke situation, as the smoke and heat is allowed to rise, leaving lower levels more clear than they would be without ventilation.

‘Flashover’ is also reduced; the situation in which heat is drawn back down into a building as natural air flow encourages regulation of heat throughout the building.

Aside from increasing life protection, AOVs also reduce the financial impact of a fire, simply by allowing smoke to exhaust, resulting in lower overall building damage.
