I chose the product as a result of searching the web. I liked the idea and the look of the guard and was NOT disappointed with the items when they arrived. They are very well made and finished well with a protective coating. The delivery was prompt within 24 hrs.

Locking Smoke Vent Button and Switch Cover with key and plastic lock

RRP £48.99 (£58.79 inc vat)

NOW FROM £37.95 (£45.54 inc vat)

This unique locking door release button cover has been developed to stop unauthorised staff or visitors from pressing the smoke vent break glass or key switch unit. 

Incorporating a frangible lock, this cover is designed to be fitted around your break glass button. The lid then locks over the top of the break glass unit.

Those with a key can easily open the cover and press the break glass unit as required. This may be to service the device or in case of a genuine emergency.

However, if an unauthorised person does not have a key and maliciously (or perhaps absentmindedly) tries to lift the cover, they will be met with real resistance.

The lock itself is made from plastic. If genuine force is applied, the lock is designed to  ultimately break. However, the person attempting to lift this cover will need to have genuine intent and apply significant force.

Kit: Box contains screws, RAWL plugs and 1 x snake eye key. More keys and replacement locks are available in the links below.

Delivery: As the exclusive and only supplier of this product in Europe, we have seen sales increase significantly in 2020. As such, we are currently manufacturing a lot more of this popular cover. These will be available for dispatch in September. Please accept our sincere apologies for this unforeseen delay.

This cover requires little DIY experience to fit. It is easily retro-fitted over previously the installed call point using the screws and rawl plugs it is supplied with.

Surface Mounted Models

The covers that are 78mm and 98mm deep have pop-outs should you need to install this cover over the top of a button that has surface mounted conduit trunking leading to the button.

The cover comes with the standard message:
Smoke Vent
