How can AOV rooflights be incorporated into commercial building design plans?
In the event of a fire, AOV rooflights allow smoke and hot gasses to be extracted out of a building. This works via the principle of thermal lift when rooflights and windows open. An additional benefit is that this creates a smoke free layer at a lower level which provides visibility, working to preserve oxygen and assist occupants with exiting a building as safely as possible.
AOV rooflights can be incorporated into commercial building design and configured to automatically open in less than 60 seconds to remove toxins, pollutants, smoke, and cool air in the event of a fire.
Rooflights are designed and tested in accordance with EN 12101 and electrical options with 24-volt vent actuators available. AOV rooflights are multipurpose systems that can also provide comfort ventilation as well as natural light. In addition, they can be used to provide safe roof access for maintenance staff.
