“Our commitment at both the Smoke Control Association and Nationwide is to raising professional standards.
We have founded Vent-Guard to give developers, architects, contractors and consultants access to the very latest thinking, design ideas, components and control systems”.
Lee Hewings, Director, Nationwide Group
Committee member of the Smoke Control Association
Developed by the Nationwide Group, Vent-Guard brings together a group of smoke ventilation specialists with a range of technical expertise that’s second to none.
The Vent-Guard team draws on over ten years of experience of working with architects, contractors, developers and consultants on everything from in-house design to installation and final commissioning. The team has played an integral role in many excellent-rated BREEAM schemes.
All Vent-Guard equipment is compliant with all relevant EN standards and is CE marked.

By working like this, we deliver the highest levels of safety across all elements that make up our turnkey packages.
