VELUX Commercial AOV Rooflights are multipurpose units that are suitable for providing natural smoke and heat exhaust, as well as comfort ventilation and natural light. They can also be used to provide safe and easy access to a roof for inspection or maintenance requirements. The AOV is electrically operated and opens upon detection of smoke. It can also be fully controlled through the building management system, giving building users and managers peace of mind.
AOVs can be fixed directly to the roof deck (with a minimum kerb height of 300mm, as the unit needs to be 300mm above the finished roof surface). Adapter kerbs are available for fixing to an upstand (with a minimum base kerb height of 300mm).
The AOV kerb and lifting frame is fabricated from aluminium, which can be insulated and thermally broken for use above a heated space.
