The SHX-UN MOT Motorised Pressure Vent offers all the proven features of the SHX-UN low to high pressure relief vent series. It also provides full pressure relief while closed. The SHX-UN MOT has motorised blade operation making it suitable for ventilation or multi-room cascade venting. The motor mechanism drives blades open without being blade-mounted allowing an instant reaction to pressure increase at any time during closing or full closure. The new design vent body can be wall cavity mounted providing extra security and installation ease.

Proven to open fully within 13 ms, the blades are blast-tested to above a potential enclosure pressure exceeding 350 kpa. The SHX-UN range is the only pressure vent on the market to have the largest true value FVA available correctly 3rd party verified to BRE live discharge test 122084.

The SHX-UN MOT is designed primarily for protecting electrical transformers requiring high levels of natural ventilation and blast protection to 10 kpa and above. For large venting projects calling for a gas suppression system, these units, combined with the new IBP HD Blast panels, give a 100% gas seal and superior pressure relief performance.
