The sky is the limit with Bilco UK’s sky flat glass smoke vent

2 mins

BILCO UK is supporting roofing professionals in achieving the highest standards in safety, efficiency and aesthetics with its new SKY Flatglass smoke vent.

The innovative product, which can be installed on flat roofs across a wide range of commercial and residential building types, offers a diverse ‘three in one’ solution, as it can be utilised as a smoke vent, roof access hatch and rooflight.

Suitable for installation on new-build developments or retrofitted onto existing projects, the CE-marked smoke vent can be wired into the building management system that will automatically open in the event of a fire or smoke.

The SKY Flatglass is fully compliant with all relevant building regulations outlined in Approved Document B and is tested to BS EN 12101-2 to support professionals in achieving constant compliance in line with the latest legislation.

The smoke vent features a single-leaf flat glass sliding cover, offering a functional yet aesthetic approach to natural smoke ventilation, particularly for exposed areas where a hinged opening may not be suitable.

The streamlined flat glass also enables the smoke vent to be utilised as a rooflight, flooding interior spaces with natural light. When used in conjunction with a fixed ladder, it can also be utilised as a roof access hatch, opening to 180° for safe and secure access.

The latest range has been tested for impact resistance, meeting standard BS EN 1873: 2014 Class SB1200.
