The Fuma door smoke control system features a discreet design that facilitates the ventilation of smoke from a fire. This is the first completely concealed Automatic Opening Vent (AOV) that fuses sleek and minimalist styling with superior functionality and excellent smoke ventilation.
Fuma is delivered on-site fully hung, minimalising installation work and speeding up your project. It simply needs to be fitted to the specified opening and connected to the BMS (Building Management System).
The most popular version, the concealed frame allows you to fully conceal your frame providing an almost completely hidden doorset.
Where aesthetics are not so key or you may wish to install the doorset after the tape and jointing/plastering the Fuma AOV can be provided with a visible frame that is surface mounted on top of the wall surface.
If on-site painting is not required the doorset can be powder-coated to smooth finish in any standard RAL colour to a 20% sheen.
For the fully concealed look, the Textured finish is recommended as it can be painted-in with the rest of the wall; concealing the face of the door.
The Textured finish provides the key to the paint, the only preparation work required prior to painting is to clean the door frame of dust and debris.
Once installed the doorset can be wallpapered over to match the surrounding decor if required.
Please seek approval from the Selo team with regards to fire rating.
The Fuma AOV utilises a unique quick release pivot hinges that facilitate extremely simple and quick door leaf installation.
Once the vent is installed the hinges are completely concealed.
Innovative safety technology from GEZE powers the Fuma AOV.
(Specified by manufacturer depending on size).
The Fuma AOV has been fire tested for 2 hours for single door configurations both side hung and bottom hung.
To ensure the fire integrity is not compromised it is important that the wall partition is suitable and also the interface between the partition and doorset is correct.
At Selo we are able to provide advice on your partition and interface details to ensure the fire regulations are met properly in conjunction with the Selo doors. Please contact us on 020 3880 0339 where our Project Consultants would be glad to assist.
