Mark Harrison, Commercial Director at Firesafe added

In 2020, AVS procured the main ductwork supply chain partner of the RGM Group. This allowed the group to be fully in control of its own manufacturing and supply chain in regard to DW144 ductwork and so ensure manufacture to the highest of quality and standards.

AVS offers a full Design & Build solution around the Smoke and Heat Exhaust Ventilation sector. It works with performance-based designs – as well as the more traditional prescriptive routes – by designing and installing systems to meet the challenging fire and smoke control requirements set out in the regional and national Building Control Standards. This is performed to all relevant and up-to-date National and Harmonised European Standards. AVS is also an IFCC SDI19 independently-certified Smoke Ventilation Contractor.

The Directors of the company share around 100 years’ experience in the ventilation industry and take immense pride in the quality and attention to detail provided by both backroom staff and the installation teams on site. As a group they operate throughout the UK and mainland Europe.

The addition of AVS to our Partner network will ensure that these systems are specified and installed on many more prestigious developments in the coming years.
