A smoke vent, also known as an automatic opening vent (AOV), is a system designed to allow smoke to escape from a building in the event of a fire. It's a safety feature often integrated into rooflights and skylights, which automatically opens in response to smoke detection. This helps to clear smoke from common areas like stairwells and corridors, aiding in safer evacuation and firefighting efforts by reducing the suffocating effect of smoke accumulation.

An AOV, or Automatic Opening Vent, is a system designed to automatically open in the event of a fire to vent smoke and heat, maintaining clear escape and access routes for evacuating people and entering firefighters. A Smoke Vent, typically referring to Smoke Ventilation windows or panels, serves a similar purpose but may not operate automatically. Smoke Vents need to be manually or electronically controlled to open up and allow smoke to escape, which can be crucial for fire safety and is often integrated into a building's fire strategy.

Smoke vents, also known as automatic opening vents (AOV), are essential safety features and should be serviced at least once a year. This is to ensure they are functioning correctly and respond as expected in case of a fire. Regular servicing checks the mechanics, electronics, and battery functions to comply with safety regulations and standards. It's an important maintenance routine that keeps the vents ready to operate effectively in an emergency.

Installing smoke ventilation, also known as smoke vents or automatic opening vents (AOVs), usually involves placing these systems at strategic points in the roof or at high points in walls to allow for the automatic release of smoke in the event of a fire. Professional installation is key, as these systems often need to integrate with the building's fire alarm system. The installation process will typically include fitting the vent, connecting the controls and power supply, and thoroughly testing the system to ensure compliance with safety regulations.

Smoke vents are required in certain buildings to help protect occupants in the event of a fire. They are designed to open either automatically or manually to allow smoke, heat, and gases to escape, thereby reducing the potential harm and providing a clearer exit path for individuals. Legislation and building codes often mandate smoke vents in commercial, public, and multi-occupancy residential buildings, including stairwells, corridors, and other common escape routes.

Yes, smoke smell can travel through vents. In buildings, the ventilation system can distribute air along with any smells it carries, including smoke, from one part of the structure to another. This is why proper ventilation and smoke management systems are important in preventing the spread of smoke smell, especially in communal areas or within multi-unit residences.
