BRE Shafts

We offer a comprehensive range of naturally ventilated smoke shafts both for means of escape in higher-risk residential buildings and for firefighter protection on larger buildings. All products are third-party tested and certified to relevant standards.

UniVent Natural Smoke Shaft

UniVent is natural smoke shaft (BRE shaft) Compliant with Approved Document B 2013. Natural smoke shafts have long been used to protect common escape routes in buildings. Known as BRE shafts, they are often assembled from mismatched components that do not form a comprehensive solution. Launched in 2002, the UniVent shaft was the first packaged modular system and remains at the leading edge of the market.

Installation Options

UniVent is available for purchase from our online shop, however for optimal results, we recommend you employ a Group SCS Approved Installer. All of our Approved Installers have undertaken our training course and are certified to operate and install our modular systems.
