Automatic Opening Smoke Vents - Are You Compliant?

The provision of automatic smoke vents is a requirement of Approved Document B in specific applications. The Smoke Control Association, in answer to Dame Judith Hackitt's call on industry to raise the bar, has recently published detailed guidance on Natural Smoke and Heat Exhaust Ventilators (commonly referred to as AOVs) and in particular, how full compliance can be achieved. A common and potentially dangerous misconception is that by installing an actuator onto a window, the contractor is fulfilling their obligations. This is wrong. This presentation, by the SCA's Will Perkins, sets out how compliance can be achieved, the regulations underpinning this mandatory requirement and plenty of useful information to help contractors deliver legally compliant solutions.
