AOV is simply an abbreviation for “Automatic Opening Vent”.
The purpose of an AOV system is to lead smoke and heat out of a burning building, whilst keeping main escape corridors and stairs free of smoke for the escape of the buildings occupants and to allow access for fire fighters.
AWAlarms can recommend a number of different types of systems that are available on the market. We can install, test & commission AOV systems or have it linked to a Fire alarm system.
With manual call points placed at key positions in the building, fire fighters can still override the control system, if required. All these devices will be linked to a central control panel, complete with a battery backup system in case of mains failure.
