Shrink Outs

Designed for optimal safety and protection, these units are engineered to shrink and contract as needed. They are particularly useful in buildings without a sprinkler system or in those equipped with a standard sprinkler system that operates at 165 degrees.

The key advantage of these units is that they will automatically shrink and fall out in case of a fire. They have been rigorously tested and approved by UL for added assurance. These units are available with or without integral insulated curbs, as well as with 360° or 500° UL-listed fusible links that allow for specific control of venting, making them compatible with ESFR (early suppression fast response) sprinkler systems. Optional safety screens are also available for added protection.

Smoke and Heat Protection

Our innovative smoke vent skylights are designed to function flawlessly in times of need. They provide protection from heat and smoke, making them an essential safety feature for any building. These skylights are not only cost-effective, but also comply with safety codes. They are specifically engineered to release smoke from the interior of a building to the exterior, reducing the risk of hazardous conditions and smoke inhalation for occupants. By investing in these skylights, you can improve fire safety precautions and provide peace of mind to those working, learning, or recovering in the building.

VELUX offers a mechanical solution for situations where smoke vents are required by code. Their product exceeds the UL 793 Standard for automatically operated roof vents for smoke and heat. Additionally, shrink-out smoke vents are available as gravity-operated acrylic double domes. These units are designed to automatically shrink and fall out in case of a fire, and are available with or without an ESFR-rated fusible link.

Shrink Out Gravity Operated Smoke Vents

Shrink-out smoke vents from Wasco provide an economical option to mechanical venting units. These gravity-operated acrylic double domes are designed to automatically shrink and fall out in case of a fire. They have been tested and approved by UL and can be purchased with or without integral insulated curbs. Additionally, they are available with 360° or 500° UL listed fusible links, which allows for specific control of venting, making them compatible with ESFR sprinkler systems. The vents are also rated for a Roof Class 90psf Uplift and can be equipped with optional safety screens. However, it is important to note that the area below the unit must remain clear of obstructions that could hinder the release of the domes.
