Safe and elegant

Our xVent (AOV) rooflight has been tested and certified to BS EN 12101-2:2003 and traditionally as a fire safety product that used to mean obstructive, ugly actuators and functionality over form. Not any more.

Elegant design goes with safety

The xVent smoke ventilation rooflight hides its operating mechanisms within the framework so when you look up that clear view of daylight is preserved and the building aesthetics enhanced (well, you wouldn’t expect anything less from a Glazing Vision rooflight). With intelligent battery backup, dual scissor actuators and thermally broken framework the xVent ticks all the boxes for designers, architects and their clients.

Tested and certified

The Glazing Vision xvent (AOV) rooflight has been tested and certified to BS EN 12101-2:2003 and cycled many thousands of times in order to meet European standards.

Fire alarm system and ventilation

On installation it is connected to the fire alarm system which if triggered will automatically open the unit to 140° in less than 60 seconds for effective smoke ventilation. If connection to the fire alarm panel is lost it will automatically open and should the fire alarm system fail completely, the integrated thermostat will trigger the unit to fire position should the internal temperature reach 72°.

The xvent has dual functionality and can also be used day to day as a vent unit opening up to 45°.

Two standard sizes

Glazing Vision’s xvent is available in two standard sizes providing internal clear openings of either 1m² or 1.5m² and can even be integrated into the Flushglaze system for larger roof glazing requirements.
