Before Thomas Edison, the process of inventing was a solitary pursuit. Edison, the world’s most prolific inventor, also invented the modern process for inventing. He brought together the best minds he could find to work as a team to help develop and refine each other’s ideas. They would work diligently, never letting failure stop them from achieving their goals. That spirit lives on at CS. Their talented designers and engineers not only work together, but also with architects and builders to help refine their good ideas. This culture of collaboration™ has led to many breakthroughs. Construction Specialties holds over 350 patents worldwide. Let’s work together to make buildings better.

APC Dayliter Fire + Smoke Vents are the safest way to protect the building’s occupants–and firefighters.
One of the first things firefighters do when they arrive at a fire is cut holes in the roof, a process that is dangerous and time consuming. APC smoke vents automatically open to vent toxic smoke and gases, reduce lateral fire spread, reduce flashback and lower the building’s internal temperature. With APC Dayliter Fire + Smoke Vents, firemen can locate the fire quickly and get into the building faster to attack the firebase directly.
Are you sure your explosion vents will work?
Many blow-out explosion and pressure relief panel systems are larger or heavier than NFPA 68 recommends for maximum performance. And since these vent systems depend solely on proper field installation, they could be extremely unreliable. CS Explovent is the only field testable explosion and pressure relief vent system. With other vent systems, you won’t know until there’s an explosion.
