Many electrical contractors have attempted to self-install smoke control and automatic opening ventilator (AOV) systems, but because they were not properly prepared they didn’t enjoy the experience. In 2017, Easivent host a variety of training courses which demonstrate the benefits and ease of self-installation of smoke control & ventilation systems. Book your place today!

*Under the Construction Products Regulations (CPR) it is a legal requirement to use only certified products for smoke ventilation. It is the responsibility of the installer to ensure installations meet the relevant standards.
