Regulations

The design of a Smoke Heat and Exhaust Ventilation system (SHEV) falls into two distinct areas, namely code compliant systems and projects requiring a fire engineered solution. SE Controls are able to offer both.

SE Controls are involved extensively with government sponsored working groups and SE Controls are able to share this knowledge with clients. Products proposed by SE Controls are CE Certified and comply with the latest British and European standards.
