Automatic opening vents are triggered by heat or smoke and work by opening automatically to allow for the circulation of smoke and air in the event of a fire. Having a high-quality automatic opening vent system can work to protect your occupants, property, and contents in the event of a fire, acting as a damage control system until emergency services come to your premises.
