    An end-to-end solution

    Smoke heat exhaust vent (SHEV) systems are essential components in buildings for fire safety and protection. These systems help control the movement of smoke and heat during fires, reducing the spread of flames and the risk to occupants. By removing smoke from occupied spaces, SHEV systems improve visibility and provide cleaner air for evacuation, minimizing the potential for smoke inhalation-related injuries. Compliance with building regulations and insurance requirements for SHEV systems is crucial, as failure to install and maintain them properly can result in legal liabilities, higher insurance premiums, and difficulties in obtaining coverage.
