SE Controls is a leading international specialist in the design and delivery of intelligent smoke and environmental ventilation systems using façade automation as an integral part of the building envelope.
We provide solutions for life safety and environmental comfort within buildings, whilst ensuring compliance with legislation and improving operating efficiencies, be that for commercial space or residential accommodation.
With over 35 years’ experience within the façade automation industry, SE Controls offer a complete turnkey solution from design and manufacture to installation, commissioning and on-going maintenance, throughout the lifetime of a building.
Our products are Made in Britain accredited but designed and tested to international standards, ensuring our solutions are at the forefront of technology and regulation, globally.
SE Controls offers a comprehensive range of natural and powered Smoke Heat and Exhaust Ventilation systems (SHEV) suitable for any size and type of building. Our systems are designed to facilitate the safe escape of occupants in the event of a fire and to enable the fire to be fought in its early stages.
Environmental or Natural ventilation improves indoor environments, reduces CO2 emissions and is cost efficient. Adaptive environmental ventilation systems are less costly than traditional HVAC systems, being cheaper to install, run and maintain. Adaptive natural ventilation is leading the way for a sustainable future.
Automatically opening windows uses hardware, known as actuators or rotary handles, that fit directly onto the window system which push and pull the window open and closed, instead of operating the window manually.
Using 4G communications technology and intelligent algorithms we can analyse the data collected from our systems placed within buildings to continually improve operating efficiencies and report back on the findings of our research to help you better understand your buildings.
SE Controls launched ‘SE Tested Solutions’ as part of our on-going commitment to ensure critical life safety systems are designed, installed, certified and maintained to mandatory legislative standards.
SE Tested Solutions is a range of documents accessed on our dedicated website portal that provide guidance on products and best practice for smoke and environmental ventilation solutions.

SE Controls has a wide range of actuators varying in type and size for a number of different applications. This includes chain, linear and locking catch varieties for bottom hung, centre pivot, dome vent, louvre vent, side hung, sloping roof vent, sloping vent and top hung ventilation and window automation systems. The range covers stroke distances of between 50 and 1200mm with an operating force up to a maximum of 2000N.
This category includes our SHEVTEC Smoke Heat Exhaust Ventilator Systems (SHEVs), all of which are tested to the various applicable European Standards, as well as our NVS Automated Opening Vents (AOVs), which automatically open and close in a controlled manner to meet the adaptive natural ventilation strategy of the building. The SHEVTEC extractor fan depicted to the right has been designed specifically to extract hot gases from corridors and lobbies via a smoke shaft. You can find out more about this model as well as our other ventilation systems by visiting www.secontrols.com.
SE Controls has designed and manufactured its own unique range of ventilation control systems for a variety of applications, including smoke ventilation, natural ventilation and window automation. Inputs include carbon dioxide monitors, day to day switches, digital encoders, fire alarms, humidity detectors, rain sensors, smoke detectors, wind speed monitors, wind direction monitors and thermostatic controls.
SE Controls has designed and developed a comprehensive range of sensors and switches for smoke and natural ventilation systems. This category includes CO2 and temperature sensors, repeater panels, 7 day timers, smoke detectors, internal and external temperature sensors, rain sensors, wind speed and direction sensors, and various open/close switches. The CO2 & Temperature sensor depicted to the right is used to monitor room CO2 levels as well as room temperature and humidity levels. LCD backlights indicate the ventilation requirements based on the measurements taken. To find out more about our sensors and switches, just follow the link to the SE Controls website.
Manual opening vents are used in situations where inaccessible windows or roof light systems require safe and secure remote operation. Our manual window controls may be used with most window systems and can be applied to bottom hung, side hung, top hung, centre pivot and sloping roof vent orientations. The Remote Mini Rotary Control unit depicted to the right is the smallest operator in our range. These have been designed for single or multiple windows and may be supplied in white, grey or black colour variations.
As an integral part of our extensive range of Smoke Heat and Exhaust Ventilation (SHEV) systems, we offer a selection of products specifically targeting smoke ventilation in residential premises, including blocks of flats. Our End of Wall Corridor AOV (Automotive Opening Vent) is installed to take away smoke in the common corridor or lobby. Our Escape Stair vents hot gases through AOVs. We also provide both mechanical and natural smoke shafts. You can see much more about Residential Smoke Ventilation products on our website, so do have a look.
Our smoke control systems are used worldwide and our reputation for compliance, design integrity and performance are well known. We undertake detailed compliance audits on smoke control solutions and provide reports on any remedial action required together with ongoing planned maintenance solutions delivered by our own qualified engineering team.
The task of assessing the current status of existing systems can be a time-consuming process and the outcomes can be inconclusive if not conducted by a professional organisation, such as SE Controls.
Not all contractors have the ability to maintain the wide range of available manufacturers’ smoke ventilation systems due to system software protocols and restrictions on procurement.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into force in 2006, it has changed fire safety requirements and affects ALL UK organisations replacing over 70 separate pieces of fire safety legislation.
Where previously the Fire Brigade would provide assistance to your companies’ fire safety arrangements and issue a fire certificate, this is no longer valid. Owners, employers and managers are now deemed responsible for adequate safety within their premises.
The smoke ventilation system is part of the overall fire safety strategy and under the RRO the responsible person must ensure that equipment and devices are maintained in efficient working order and in good repair to safeguard the relevant persons within the building.
SE Controls are able to offer comprehensive approved CPD seminars that can help develop knowledge and understanding of the application and principles of smoke and natural ventilation systems. These may be delivered either at the SE Controls head office or at our client’s offices for convenience.
You can find out more about our approved CPD seminars by visiting the SE Controls website. Or you can simply give us a call on 01543 44 30 60 and speak to our experts.
