AOV rooflights are an excellent solution for natural light and ventilation. If you’re an installer considering one for a project you’re responsible for, here are some of the benefits of AOV rooflights that you might not be aware of.
AOV rooflights are primarily designed to automatically extract smoke from buildings during a fire. An actuator causes the vent to open, which helps to keep escape routes clear of smoke, giving people a better chance of escape. An integral part of many smoke ventilation systems, they can be triggered to open via several manual and automatic inputs.
Our AOV rooflights offer 140° opening and a geometric free area of 1m2 or 1.5m2, depending on the vent size, ensuring it’s easy to comply with Approved Document B of Building Regulations.
Various lid options
Their lids can be built from a variety of materials. This includes insulated aluminium, double glazed glass and clear or opal UV-protected polycarbonate. When opting for double glazed glass or a polycarbonate dome, this allows natural light to make its way inside of properties to brighten them up.
Overall U-value of 0.7 W/m²k
Our AOV rooflights have 50mm of insulation which has a U-value of 0.25 W/m2k. This gives them an overall U value of 0.7 W/m2k, meaning it is easy to comply with Approved Document L of Building Regulations when installing them.
Certified to EN 12101
As they have been tested, manufactured and certified to EN12101-2:2003 annex ZA, rest assured that our AOV rooflights are compliant with all the relevant British Standards. To achieve this standard, they undergo cycle tests over thousands of operations, high and low-temperature tests, snow and wind load tests. Therefore, they are guaranteed to offer the best in safety and quality.
Suitable for a variety of applications
Although they are mostly installed in multistorey residential buildings, AOV rooflights are surprisingly versatile. Other common locations for them include hotels, schools and hospitals, but as they are suitable for all types of flat and pitched roofs, they are plenty of other suitable locations for them.
