Smoke control systems are an important fire safety measure for HRRBs (high-rise residential buildings). They are provided to keep escape routes clear of smoke to allow people to safely exit the building in an emergency and to allow firefighters clear access to stop the fire and carry out rescue operations.

Easivent offers a comprehensive range of AOV kits designed specifically for self-installation by mechanical and electrical contractors. The product range comprises kits containing ventilators or actuators, control panels, smoke detectors and switches designed to work out of the box without the need for specialist installation or commissioning service. Although smoke control systems can be onerous to design and install for complex buildings, the majority of smoke shaft and AOV systems are very similar and well within the capability of a competent trade contractor.
