Fire vent promotes safety with daylighting benefits
Lumivent from Bilco Co. is an automatic fire vent with multi-wall polycarbonate covers that provide natural daylighting. The vent’s flat panels and sloped cover design meet both UL 793 and 2012 IBC 2610.3 code requirements, ensuring that embers roll off rather than burning through the panels. Well-suited for buildings with large expanses of unobstructed space, the vent opens automatically during a fire to remove smoke, heat, and toxic gases. A patented latching mechanism is designed to allow quick, safe resetting of vent covers from the roof level.
