Fire Vent Closure Winches

Fire vents are required in some theaters and other multi-story structures to provide code-compliant ventilation in the event of a fire. Annual testing and resetting of fire vents is a difficult challenge, and Thern Stage Equipment’s fire vent closure winch provides a unique solution to streamline this process.

Product Description

Our fire vent closure winch is a purpose-build, manually controlled winch that allows the operator to easily close, test, inspect, and release spring-actuated fire vent hatches on the roof of a venue. Enhance the winch with an optional electro thermal link (ETL) to automatically release fire vent doors in the event of a fire for additional peace of mind.

Made to last, our components are comprised of durable, heavy-duty materials. We guarantee consistent service life for your Thern Stage Equipment fire vent closure winch by offering a two-year limited warranty to make sure that you’re 100% satisfied.
