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.

How it works

The UniVent system by Group SCS was designed using the fundamentals of lean construction.

The system requires no bespoke design or on-site programming and is automatically configured to operate to the design control philosophy. Moreover, UniVent works straight out of the box and can be used on almost any higher-risk residential buildings.

Selection and Specification

The UniVent Natural Ventilation system can be purchased directly from our online shop. Further guidance on the selection and specification process is available in the Group SCS Modular Area. The area offers a full suite of system documentation, including a budget summary, system specification, technical submittal, and schematics that can be accessed upon request.
