New Products for Fire and Life Safety
Fire vents are designed to maximize fire containment by removing smoke, heat and gases from a burning building. Suited for large unobstructed spaces, such as factories, warehouses, retails stores and convention centers, the devices are intended to increase evacuation time and decrease risk of smoke inhalation and damage.

The system can now be installed to work in conjunction with non-dedicated HVAC equipment to form a system for controlling the flow of smoke in a building, using fans, ducts and dampers.
