WESTCOAST WINDOWS SWEDISH COMPOSITE WINDOWS CAN BE CERTIFIED TO BE FITTED WITH AUTOMATICALLY OPERATED VENTS (AOV) FOR SMOKE VENTILATION
Westcoast Windows design and manufacture high performance composite aluminium timber windows in our factory on the west coast of Sweden.
Following testing and certification via Warrington Fire, Westcoast windows are certified to be supplied as CE marked Automatically Operated Vents (AOVs) for smoke ventilation.
Working in conjunction with SE Controls, Westcoast supply and install the windows, which are then fitted with the appropriately specified actuators by SE Controls network of approved installers.
SE Controls is a specialist contractor providing a complete solution for both smoke and adaptive environmental ventilation via façade and building envelope automation. SE Controls are members of FETA (The Smoke Control Association) and are longstanding participants of the CEN Technical Committee Working Groups responsible for producing European standards, including EN 12101 and its future releases.
Westcoast’s technical sales team will work with SE Controls to ensure standards/regulations are met and select the appropriate tested solution.
Automatically Operated Vents are typically installed in windows in stair wells of high- rise buildings to allow for smoke ventilation in case of fire.
Westcoast Windows’ Managing Director Andrew Mills comments, “We are delighted to work with SE Controls to supply our commercial customers with this ventilation solution for our windows. SE Controls have over 40 years’ experience within the façade automation industry and provide us with the high standards and certification required to meet the very latest regulations in smoke ventilation”.
