What is an AOV Kit and why do I need one?

Here at Easivent we wanted to make it easier for you to get your job done. So, we put together a range of AOV Kits which provide a solution for just about any smoke ventilation requirement in a building.

Easivent’s Kits are designed for self-installation and meet the requirements of Approved Document B of the Building Regulations. The Kits can be installed as either stand-alone systems or be inter-connected to form modular "smoke shaft" systems without the need of additional interfaces or software. 

All products are CE marked and conform to the relevant British and European standards. But best of all, they work out of the box without the need for specialist installation and commissioning services. We’ve also added a discount to the price of products when they’re bought in Kit form – making it cheaper for you.

What can I expect to receive in my AOV Kit?

AOV Kits contain different products, depending on the type of installation they’re designed for.


 Typically included in our kits are:

  • Ventilator or actuator
  • Control panel
  • Smoke detector
  • Switches

To make it really straightforward for you, we’ve produced a simple guide to our AOV kits (lobbies, corridors and stairwells).

Smoke control training

Although our kits are designed for self-installation, it is the responsibility of the installer to ensure their systems are complaint.

As part of our Approved Installer Scheme we run training on the design, installation and commissioning of smoke control systems to Approved Document B. Approved Installers not only learn about the systems and regulations, but also receive greater technical support and discounts on their orders with Easivent.

So, if you would like to learn more about ensuring your installations are compliant and would like to receive some great benefits like up to 10% off your orders check out our Approved Installers page for more information.
