Automatic Smoke Vent - Acoustical
<p>Acoustical smoke vents are designed to guard against noise intrusion and at the same time provide the security of dependable automatic venting in the event of a fire. Vents carry an STC-46 sound rating and are ideal for concert halls, theaters, casinos, and other interior applications that require limited noise from the outside. In the event of a fire, heat breaks the fusible link, allowing powerful lifting mechanisms to open the vent cover instantaneously. Pull handles are provided for interior or exterior manual operation and products are fully insulated and gasketed for weather tightness. </p><br><b>Uses and Applications</b><br>Automatic Smoke Vents protect property and aid firefighters in bringing a fire under control by removing smoke, heat, and gases from a burning building. Smoke ventilation improves air quality and visibility to allow occupants to get out and firefighters to get in to do their job. Smoke vents are ideally suited for large expanses of unobstructed space such as factories, warehouses, auditoriums, and retail facilities.<p><br><b>Assembly and Installation</b><br>Installation of BILCO automatic smoke vents is simply a matter of placing the vent over the roof opening and securing it to the roof deck through the holes provided in the base flange. The integral capflashing readily accepts roofing felts for built-up roofing applications, and Bilco&apos;s patented Bil-Clip&#174; flashing system simplifies installation in single-ply roofing applications.</p><br><b>Materials and Finishes</b><br>Acoustical smoke vents are available in either 14 gauge (1.9mm) paint bond G-90 galvanized steel construction.<p><br><b>Codes and Certifications</b><br>Products have been tested for an STC-46 sound rating, are UL listed, and comply with UL793 and UL 790 Class A (burning brand test) requirements. All BILCO products are designed to provide many years of trouble-free service.

Exciting times ahead for access specialists

November 2017

Two of the UK’s leading manufacturers of access solutions have joined the home security expert ERA.
Bilco UK, manufacturers of speciality access products, was acquired in June 2016 by Amesbury Truth, a subsidiary of London based Tyman Plc. In March 2017 Howe Green Ltd, manufacturers of metal fabricated access covers, was acquired by the group to support Bilco’s offering for “access all areas”.

Nationalmuseum of Art, Stockholm - Credit: Hans Thorwid / NationalmuseumFrom April 2017 Bilco and Howe Green have become part of ERA, another division of Tyman Plc. The manufacturing and sales operation of Howe Green will remain at Ware, Hertfordshire.

James Fisher, who has been the Managing Director of Bilco since October 2014, now takes on the additional role as Managing Director of Howe Green and reports directly into ERA.

James comments,

“I am excited that Bilco and Howe Green are now a part of the ERA family. Our routes to market are different to ERA and we will operate as a standalone business however there are obvious benefits to being part of a much larger organisation.

The three companies have shared values and complimentary product ranges. They are well established, successful, ISO9001 accredited, manufacturing organisations that recognise the importance of innovation to drive new product development and customer satisfaction.

Whilst it is a diverse product range they satisfy the same need. The customer is looking for a dependable solution that will offer the safety, security and protection of people and assets. I believe we have an incredibly powerful proposition for the construction market.”

Based in the West Midlands and founded in 1838 ERA has evolved from manufacturing locks to becoming a specialist in the design and manufacture of window and door hardware and home security alarm systems.

“The Bilco and Howe Green products are often specified in the same projects - the markets we serve and the people we work with are the same.
