Window automation actuators control the opening and closing of different windows for either natural- or smoke ventilation. It is a cost-effective way of obtaining a smoke ventilation system with the added advantages that it doubles as a natural ventilation system. By introducing automatic vents at high level that open upon detection of smoke, the smoke is allowed to escape to the atmosphere providing a clear escape route and increased visibility for the fire service to enter the affected area.   


A few factors that need to be considered at when one is planning for an automated window installation would be:  

  • Exterior and interior temperature

  • Intensity and direction of wind and rain

  • Frequency of use

  • Ambient humidity and CO₂ levels

The use of actuators to automate windows, can be used to react to sensors that control this system. We offer a range of window openers such as pistons, chain drives, spindle drives and scissor drives.
