Our xVent (AOV) rooflight has been tested and certified to BS EN 12101-2:2003 and traditionally as a fire safety product that used to mean obstructive, ugly actuators and functionality over form. Not any more. The xVent smoke ventilation rooflight hides its operating mechanisms within the framework so when you look up that clear view of daylight is preserved and the building aesthetics enhanced (well, you wouldn’t expect anything less from a Glazing Vision rooflight). With intelligent battery backup, dual scissor actuators and thermally broken framework the xVent ticks all the boxes for designers, architects and their clients.
The xVent has been rigorously tested and cycled many thousands of times in order to meet European standards. On installation it is connected to the fire alarm system which, when triggered, will automatically open the unit to 140 degrees for fast, effective smoke ventilation. The xVent has dual functionality and you can also use it as a day-to-day vent unit, opening up to 45 degrees.
Glazing Vision’s xVent is available in two standard sizes providing 1m² and 1.5m² clear opening and we can even integrate it into the Flushglaze® for larger roof glazing requirements. Take a look at the specification details below.
