We bought this cover because my elderly mother keeps switching off the heating controls. This was the only product we found that would serve the purpose of stopping her doing that yet being able to access the controls ourselves.
We find it a very sturdy, clear and easy to use, although it does not swing on a 'hinge' as we expected, but we have mastered putting it on and off. My husband found it straight forward to fit. The clear measurements given in the product description meant we had chosen correctly for our purpose.
It arrived the day after ordered. So we were pleased with our choice and the service. 4 out of 5 just because a hinge would be easier to access

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

This unique protective cover with anti-tamper break seal 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 an surface mounted version that allows wire and conduit to pass through.

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.
