Smoke vents are utilized as part of the building fire emergency system. The smoke vent is designed to open at a fixed point temperature. The smoke vent opens to allow dangerous and hazardous exhaust gasses to escape from the building. Some smoke vents are also designed to be operable from the exterior, so if a fire occurs, the fire department can open the smoke vent and shoot water inside the building from the roof. The requirements for smoke vents are dictated by the local Fire Marshall and the Building Codes. This is also dependent on the type of use of the building and the materials stored inside the space. The smoke vents we offer use an acrylic or polycarbonate lens for the ‘doors’ of the smoke vent, so you receive the added benefit of natural light and the use as a smoke vent as well.
