The Future is Orange for Airvent – Update
The new EN 12101-9 standard requires that all call points (Fireman’s override switches) should now be a deep orange colour (RAL 2011) and have a frangible element to discourage tampering.
EN 12101-9 sets out the operational and aesthetic requirements for a manual control point. The term “manual control point” is designed to encompass generic phrases such as fireman’s switch, call point, breakglass etc.
Airvent continue to lead the way by ensuring we fully comply and we have been installing orange Fireman’s override switches for some time. Please see image below for the Airvent deep orange call point.
Our switches in conjunction with our open protocol IntelliVent OPC control system only operate to switched positions giving Firemen local control while guarding against tampering or human error.
