Smoke Ventilation Compliance

| Ensuring compliancy to industry standards |

For modern buildings over 11 metres in height (typically 3 storeys), smoke ventilation systems are just as important as fire alarms.

According to EN12101-2 regulations, actuators and windows must hold a Declaration of Performance. They must be tested together as a single system at an accredited facility to pass all test annexes of the prescriptive standard.

Unfortunately in some cases, although the actuator fitted to the window itself, may have be compliant, the window however isn’t. The window and actuator together as one wouldn’t have been rigorously tested under accurate conditions. Therefore how well that smoke ventilation system would have performed in a real life situation, would have been unknown. Overall, the smoke ventilation system could not be deemed as being truly compliant. Where windows are utilised for smoke ventilation they must be CE marked to EN12101-2, mandated by the Construction Products Regulations 2013.

Ensure your compliant by getting in touch with Silver Group today and reduce your risk of facing any offences.

Fortunately, now following extensive research and testing of their window systems as smoke vents, A-Plus Windows & Doors can offer fully certified Metal Technology, Reynaers, Sapa & Technal smoke vents on specific tested profiles, offering delivery of the vent with pre-fitted actuators in accordance with the prescriptive test detail, fully compliant and certified.
