What is an AOV system?

An AOV is an Automatic Opening Vent.

They are used to vent smoke or air from a building, they can also be used to allow light, comfort ventilation as well as access to the roof area of the building.

From a safety perspective AOVs help with evacuation by controlling and clearing buildings of smoke.

Aov’s should be regularly tested using manual controls to make sure the building is safe as well as testing other parts of the building system.

Aov actuators connect to the vents and other parts of the buildings fire system to make sure the vents open if other parts of the systems are activated.
