Windows & Actuators – Now the complete compliant solution
For modern buildings over 3 metres in height, smoke ventilation systems are just as important towards the life-saving systems as a fire alarm would be. However, up until recently it would have been likely that although the actuator fitted to the window may have been compliant, the window itself would not. The window and actuator together as one would not have been rigorously tested under accurate conditions. Therefore how well that smoke vent system would have performed in a real life situation, would have not been known. Based on this, the overall 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. To comply, both vent/window and actuator must be tested together at an independent accredited test facility, and fabricated under a third party audited process.
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.
Therefore, A-Plus with their partnership with Silver Group, can be offer a truly fully compliant solution with windows and actuators fitted together. Both Silver Group and A-Plus have been accredited Certified Partners with SE Controls, in addition Silver Group are also Certified Installers for SE Controls and A-Plus Certified Manufacturers for them.
With these reassurances, you can relax knowing that now your new smoke ventilation and AOV system meets all current legislation when pre-fitted to the correct window system.
