Tec-Vent fire retardant AAV

ByStudor Tec-Vent™ 

AAV for applications where fire retardance is required

Some environments, including schools, care homes, hospitals, high rise buildings, through to particularly high‐risk environments such as oil rigs, aviation and fuel refineries, require products to be installed which have specific flame retardant properties – aimed to help stop or slow the spread of fire.

The drainage system is no exception, and this is why the UL classified ByStudor Tec-Vent Air Admittance Valve (AAV) was designed.

By installing the fire retardant Tec-Vent AAV, significant savings can be made by reducing the need for expensive flame retardant vent piping and reducing the number of fire stopping devices required in the drainage system.

The Tec‐Vent protects the trap seals in the drainage system in the same way as the ByStudor Handi-Vent 4 AAV – it allows air to enter and ensures that the pressure within the drainage system is properly balanced, but does not allow foul air to leave and enter the living space/habitable area. This ensures that the trap seals remain intact – providing an essential barrier between the drainage system and the living space.
