The Lobby Casement & Controls AOV kit has been specifically designed to ensure you have everything you need for a smoke control project that incorporates a BRE type smoke shaft with a corridor/lobby window. Without the need for specialist installation or commissioning services, this kit can be installed as either stand-alone systems or be interconnected to form modular “smoke shaft” systems without the need for additional interfaces or software.
AOV Kit I – Lobby Casement and Controls comprises of:
Our CE-certified AOV casement window is a natural ventilation window that is suitable for natural, day-to-day ventilation and smoke ventilation. With its slim profile, it’s an aesthetic, high-grade ventlight for facade applications while the controls for the frame have been completely embedded in the structure, hiding them from view. The extremely slim profile means the system is ideally suited for use in facades.
The CE-marked for smoke control use (tested to EN 12101), control panel monitors and controls smoke control ventilators and interface devices all with the added security of a battery back-up. The innovative design provides a programmable facility (via DIP switches) for limited ventilation (used on day-to-day ventilation to prevent AOV windows opening fully) and timed openings used in conjunction with a thermostat for corridor cooling.
Providing local override control with a visual and audible indication in accordance with BS EN 12101 Part 9 and BS ISO 21927 Part 9. Two buttons provide override open, close and reset functions and three coloured LEDs with an audible buzzer indicate system health, fault and alarm status.
The Easivent photoelectric smoke detector uses a state-of-the-art optical chamber combined with an application-specific integrated circuit to provide quick and accurate detection of fires. The detector has an integral LED, which illuminates to provide a local alarm signal. This latches on and remains illuminated until the detector is reset by a momentary power interruption.
Under the Construction Products Regulations (CPR) it is a legal requirement to use only certified products for smoke ventilation. It is the responsibility of the installer to ensure installations meet the relevant standards. For more information see SCS Group’s Technical Bulletin.
