Putting it to the test.
Explovent is the only venting system that can be tested at any time to periodically verify working conditions.
Blowout siding cannot be field tested to verify working conditions outside of an explosion.
Explovent is re-settable after testing and does not need to be replaced after usage.
Blowout siding can only be used once, and must be replaced after opened.
Explovent arrives on-site fully calibrated—ready to install.
Blowout siding employs shear bolts and fasteners and thus is highly dependent on proper installation by site laborers.
Explovent can be installed quickly and easily to save on labor costs.
Blowout siding requires timely on site-engineering before installations.
Explovent is lightweight and engineered in accordance with NFPA 68 code and OSHA guidelines.
Blowout siding systems are typically larger and heavier than NFPA standards recommend.
Explovent can be tested at any time to ensure that panels are functioning as intended.
Without the availability for testing, blowout siding can be extremely unreliable.
Explovent provides venting solutions for either wall or rooftop installation; as well as a range of natural day lighting options.
Siding can only be provided on walls, with many systems being unable to provide functional, aesthetic solutions.
Explovent has Factory Mutual (FM) and ATEX approved models.
Blowout siding systems cannot be non-destructively tested and are often not labeled. How can you tell that they work?
