In recent years glass smoke vents have increased in popularity as they are more commonly incorporated in properties and buildings of all types. Glass, as a smoke vent glazing material offers the specifier or user both visual and performance related benefits and enhancements across the board. The most obvious appeal is the flat glazed appearance and the ability to have a lower profile product at roof level helping keep the smoke vent as attractive from both roof level and below the unit once installed.
Available in a wide range of types and mechanisms, glass smoke vents are available for installation on a flat roof with completely concealed mechanisms for maximizing the light they bring in.
When used in the vertical application (in facades and external walls) glazed roof louvres are a great way to introduce light within areas of a building commonly overlooked when natural light could assist in the safety of occupants in a building during an emergency situation.
Please see the products below for a closer look at how a glazed smoke vent or glazed smoke louvre vent could help meet or exceed compliance to EN 12102-2 standards.
