Andover, Mass. - Andover Controls, a leading manufacturer of "Smart Building" facility management systems, announced that 12 of 16 products from their line of native BACnet controllers plus their BACnet repeaters have been certified to the smoke control standard, UL 864, UUKL. Having undergone a rigorous Underwriters Laboratories approval process, Andover's BACnet controllers can now be used in smoke pressurization and purging applications. The BACnet product family joins Andover's previous generation product lines, Continuum® and Infinity, in receiving this important UL smoke control certification.

Andover's BACnet smoke control-approved controllers offer a broad range of HVAC control components, including the b3920 System Controller, designed for air-handling units and other large equipment; the b3865, a terminal controller designed for the full range of VAV applications; and the b3867, a low-cost, general purpose controller, perfect for fan coil and heat pump applications.

According to Don Lemenager, Andover's Senior Product Manager, smoke control is an essential component in today's facility management systems. "In the event of a building fire," says Lemenager, "a smoke control system will maintain established evacuation routes and contain smoke within the fire area, protecting lives and property. Andover's smoke control solution provides peace-of-mind for any building owner. We are one of the first manufacturers to provide a UL 864 Smoke Control listing for such an extensive line of BTL-Listed BACnet products."

To learn more about the requirements for designing a UL-approved smoke control system, Andover Controls has prepared a comprehensive manual entitled BACnet Smoke Control System Design Guide (P/N: 30-3001-874).
