If you are a contractor wishing to bring smoke control in-house or if you're looking for an SCS Group Approved Installer we can help.
Smoke control is an important life safety feature of any building. Equipment and systems relating to smoke control and ventilation must be designed and installed correctly for the building to ensure safety of occupants and where appropriate, fire fighters.
Smoke control is typically procured by mechanical and electrical contractors on a design, supply and install basis from a smoke control specialist, and for complex buildings employing a specialist is the safest route providing they are of the right calibre. However, the majority of regular multi-storey buildings (blocks of flats, offices, student accommodation) have similar smoke control requirements and are suitable for a modular standardised approach to fire safety (such as fire alarms and other fire safety provisions). Selection and installation of these standardised systems are well within the realm of competence of most mechanical or electrical or fire and security contractors.
The SCS Group with over 20 years’ experience have designed, manufactured and installed smoke control systems in thousands of buildings across the UK. Working with a small number of strategic customers, the company’s project teams have earned a reputation for technical excellence, reliability and customer service and the product supply arm Easivent has developed a comprehensive product range covering AOVs and natural and mechanical smoke shafts.
The Easivent AOV kit range is designed for installation by mechanical or electrical contractors or other trade specialists and the SCS Group Easivent Approved Installer scheme gives contractors the tools they need to bring smoke control in house to increase profit and eliminate the risks associated with sub contracting this vital element of fire safety in buildings.
