This is a small single zone smoke vent system supplied for a stairwell in a multi occupancy building in London.

Flat Glass AOV Roof Hatch

For this high-end flat conversion project in London we specified one of our EN12101-2 tested flat glass roof vents to provide a better-quality finish to the project.

This AOV roof hatch was required for the top of the stairwell, where you commonly need to achieve a 1mtr square free vent area to clear the smoke from the escape route.

The roof vent installed is 1.4mtr x 1mtr vent with a toughened flat glass lid that will open to 140 degrees in the event of a fire. Finished in white

Flat Roof AOV Example Install

This roof vent includes 6mm toughened low ‘E’ Glass which improves the heat loss during the winter and helps to reduce the heat build-up in the summer.

Smoke Ventilation Equipment Supplied:

  • 1x Flat Glass AOV Roof Hatch – 1m2 Free Vent Area
  • 1 x Single Zone 10amp Stairwell AOV Control Panel (Including Battery Backup)
  • 1 x Fireman’s Override Switch

This system is connected to the communal fire alarm panel, which will activate in the event of a fire. The fireman’s override switch provides full manual control of the vent at the ground floor entrance as required by the fire brigade on entry.
