Stardome Automatic Opening Vents

The Stardome AOV provides complete specification flexibility. They are commonly located at the head of a stairwell or at the top of a ventilation shaft. For smoke extraction, 1.0m² or 1.5m² of free vent area is required.

Main Features:

  • Easy installation.
  • All units made to measure.
  • Opens to either 90° or 140°.
  • Polycarbonate, glass or solid metal top.
  • Supplied with or without control backup.
  • Concealed mechanism providing a clear, uninterrupted opening.

The top or lid of the unit can be supplied in three forms:

  1. Single, double or triple skin polycarbonate top, available in a variety of sizes.
  2. Glazed with a double glazed sealed glass unit.
  3. An insulated, solid metal panel with a polyester powder coating. This is normally used when only ventilation is required and typically can be found at the head of a smoke shaft where no light is required.

Automatic Opening VentStardome AOV's can be fixed directly to the roof deck with their own kerb, with the roofing membrane being dressed up the outside of an insulated kerb.

We can supply a kerb adaptor in cases where the kerb is constructed as part of the roofing system, i.e. a builders kerb, or metal roofing.

Automatic Opening VentAluminum or galvanised steel is used to produce kerbs and kerb adaptor units. These are both polyester powder coated white.

Mechanical and Electrical Engineers will usually recommend this particular automatic skylight as part of a complete fire ventilation, smoke extraction and alarm unit. A control panel would link all integral aspects of this system.
