1.I chose to buy from SSP as, when sourcing the Visitor Book, your site was one of the main ones to come up. I also liked the choice of different sizes, prices, orientation (eg portrait or landscape) etc of what you could provide.
2.Having received the book and backboard I ordered, I am very pleased with the quality and professional look of these products. Unfortunately, as this is something new being introduced to our Reception, I have not had the go-ahead from management to start using these yet.
3.The ordering process was simple, clear and straight-forward and the order arrived exactly when expected and was securely packaged.
4.I cannot see any areas necessary for improvement in your service and would be very happy to use you again.
5.I did not deal with a particular individual, it was all done online.
Rating: 5/5

1.We have plenty of Tamtorque clamps but needed some more power bits, I did a Google search, browsed through a few results, one wouldn’t sell bits without selling the clamps, but we have plenty already, so I continued the search and you had a good price and very good customer reviews.
2.The product is as expected, exactly what we needed.
3. Price is good, no hassle, easy to order, reviews clear to see.
4. I didn’t get a confirmation email after ordering, which I kept meaning to double check but never got round to. I was about to check when I received the email saying the order was out for delivery, but it was about a week later. So maybe an automated email at the ordering stage – I did check my junk folder but still didn’t see one.

AOV Activation Call Point Cover with extra loud sounder (Flush mount)

SSP No: 14936

RRP £59.70 (£71.64 inc vat)

NOW £54.95 (£65.94 inc vat)

Please click the link to see our new Call Point Cover Video

This unique protective cover with alarm is designed to ensure AOV / smoke vent buttons and switches are not accidentally or maliciously set off.

Designed to fit over any break glass or keyswitch unit already in place, this kit comes with four RAWL plugs and screws for easy installation over the top of the activation device.

This is a flush mounted cover, designed for break glass units that are set into the wall.

What is an AOV Smoke Vent Button?
Automatic Opening Vent (AOVs) switches or break glass units are used mainly to control the ventilation of smoke in a fire. When a call point is triggered, an AOV control system will open actuators, windows or vents to create ventilation. This clears smoke for people leaving the building and vents smoke out of the area that has been triggered. These systems have increased in usage on the back of changes to the Building Regulations and the expected introduction of EN:12101.

Features and benefits of SSP’s AOV Smoke vent cover

Shows standard message stating Smoke vent for easy identification
Uses universally recognised orange colour coding to tie in with EN: 12101
Extra loud 105 decibel alarm will sound as soon as the cover is lifted. This will attract the attention of all those around and act as a significant deterrent to the would-be perpetrator.
Spacer has pop out to allow trunking, conduit and wires to pass through into button
Physical Barrier - prevents anyone accidentally or intentionally leaning against break glass unit
Visible barrier - will make person think twice about lifting cover
Compact self contained hinge – smooth opening action
Highly durable - 3mm thick polycarbonate will not shatter at all and will withstand the severest of knocks
Curved corners to ensure passers-by are not injured from mistakenly walking into product
The majority of this cover is clear, to enable people to see the break glass unit in the event of an emergency
Simply attached using four button head screws and wall plugs provided
Polycarbonate tested to withstand as little as minus 40°C and as much as 49°C (120°F)
Three year guarantee against breakage of polycarbonate in normal use

Glow in the dark
This cover has a built in photoluminescent strip that glows in the dark. This ensures that, should the lights fail in the event of a fire or emergency, there will be no delay in reaching the button.

Should you need to do maintenance on AOV/Smoke Vent activation button?

With every model a silencer key is supplied so authorised personnel can carry out for maintenance work on the emergency push button without the alarm sounding.
