Option - Manual Winch Operation

Roof hatches and automatic smoke vents can be supplied with manual winch operation to open and close covers remotely. Winch operation provides a convenient means of ventilating work areas in manufacturing facilities and is a less expensive alternative to electric motor operation. Product is supplied with manual winch and wall mounting bracket (cable and additional pulleys can be supplied at additional cost).


Winch operated smoke vents are not available with an exterior pull release cable for manual operation. Specify motorized smoke vents if remote operation and a manual exterior release are required.
For more information on this option, please contact The BILCO Company or your local BILCO Sales Representative.
