A window solution that automatically opens to expel smoke in the event of a fire has been developed for fabricators by Eurocell plc.

The new system works by connecting an actuator to the window’s frame so that the window opens in the presence of smoke. This helps to prevent smoke build-up and allows the façade to be used as a central part of the building’s smoke ventilation strategy.

Eurocell has collaborated with SE Controls to independently test its popular window systems to the European smoke ventilator standard EN12101-2. The audited fabrication and installation process creates a solution that is CE marked and that comes with a Declaration of Performance (DoP) to prove its compliance.

The AOV windows will be available early 2020 through selected fabricators
