Lumivent by The Bilco Company

 

Bilco’s Lumivent is a domed automatic fire vent that offers natural daylight and energy efficiency with the protection of automatic fire venting.

Lumivent features Lexan Thermoclear glazing, a polycarbonate material that maximizes light transmittance while minimizing solar heat gain.  Compared to traditional domes, the Lumivent features an increase of over 40% in insulation performance.

The Lumivent is designed to open automatically in the event of a fire, allowing smoke, heat, and gas to escape.  Lumivent is ideal for buildings with large expanses of unobstructed space such as retail facilities, factories, warehouses, and auditoriums.

Lumivent is available in UL-listed and FM approved models, and special sizes are also possible.
