The xVent Automatic Opening Vent (AOV) rooflight is a fully tested and certified fire safety product. It has been UKCA marked to EN 12101-2:2003.
The xVent smoke ventilation rooflight hides its operating mechanisms within the framework, so when you look up that clear view of daylight is preserved. 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° 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°.
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.
