Orestone’s expertise in enhancing fire safety across the UK is exemplified by their comprehensive work with Automatic Opening Vents (AOV) systems. AOVs are ingeniously designed to facilitate the safe exit of individuals during a fire incident by extracting smoke and introducing fresh air into the environment. This dual function not only aids in the safe evacuation of occupants but also provides an advantage to fire services by improving visibility and reducing smoke density, thereby helping to combat the fire more effectively in its initial stages.

Orestone’s offerings encompass the supply, fitting, and servicing of both smoke and natural ventilation AOVs, catering to a wide range of commercial and residential  properties. The AOVs provided by Orestone adhere to British Standards, ensuring that they meet the highest quality and safety benchmarks. A significant feature of these systems is their capability to integrate with existing fire alarm systems, creating an intelligent safety system that automatically activates the vents in response to a fire alarm. This integration is crucial for the immediate extraction of smoke from the affected zone, significantly improving evacuation times and overall safety.

In larger properties, smoke AOVs are commonly installed in stairwells, while in smaller premises, they are often fitted to windows. This strategic placement ensures that, upon activation by the fire alarm, the AOVs promptly open in the specific areas where the fire is detected, thereby removing smoke and improving air quality and visibility for evacuating occupants.

Orestone’s dedicated approach to the design, supply, installation, and maintenance of both smoke and natural ventilation AOV systems, along with their commitment to compliance with EN12101 and approved document B standards, demonstrates their commitment to creating safer and more comfortable environments. Their expertise spans the technical implementation of these systems and encompasses a deep understanding of regulatory standards and the practical needs of commercial and residential properties across the UK, ensuring that every project they undertake contributes significantly to the safety, comfort, and well-being of its occupants.
