Laboratories for smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems (SHEVs).

Reliability clearly proven - with your VdS-approval

The deadliest + most destructive danger in case of fire: Not the flames themselves, but the highly toxic smoke.

  • 95% of fire victims in Germany die of smoke poisoning (DFV).
  • Smoke damage usually exceeds pure flame damage by a factor of ten (FVLR).

These facts make smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems, which immediately dissipate the poisonous gases that contaminate everything and the heat stored in them in the event of an emergency, an essential component of every safety concept. Users, insurers and authorities want to be sure that the complex systems will function reliably at all times in an emergency. Manufacturers can provide decisive proof of this directly at first glance: With the VdS system approval.

Your proof of success:

Durable functional safety and security tested and certified in detail - by Europe's largest institute for fire prevention and protection. More than 110 years of trust in VdS are directly transferred to your products.
