Bilco 'clears air on smoke vent CE marking'

13 June 2013

Bilco’s new generation of smoke vents will all carry the CE mark, which denotes compliance with the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) under harmonised European Standard EN12101-2

In order to achieve CE mark compliance, Bilco embarked on a minor redesign of its smoke vent products, adding wind deflectors. These, the company says, enable the vent size to be kept to a compact minimum while guaranteeing the required free aerodynamic area to disperse smoke from inside the property to the outside.

CPR succeeds the former voluntary Construction Products Directive (CPD). The company’s smoke vent range has been tested by a third party ‘notified body’ across a range of its characteristics including; reliability; opening under loads; low ambient temperature (to temperatures as low as -15°C); wind load; and heat exposure; in addition to free aerodynamic area.
