As part of the ongoing development to the electrical section of our website there have been some notable additions in recent weeks, especially to the Ventilation and Cooling section. Most notabley are the ranges of Extractor Fans that are now available to buy online from top brands Airflow, Manrose, Vent-Axia and Xpelair.
The range of Airflow fans and Manrose fans have been brought up to date and the Vent-Axia and Xpelair Fan sections are compeltely new to the site.
Award Winning Technology
Changes to regulations in 2010 mean that any rooms without windows need some form of extraction and these changes to the Building Regulations, as well as minimum airflow requirements (Approved Document F) mean there are now minimum energy efficiencies required, so these products aren’t just nice to have, they are essential.
The new regulations require a minimum specific fan power as minimum energy efficiency and this is measured in watts per litre a second of airflow extracted.
Compliance with these regulations and efficiency are of course the main considerations but some manufacturers even go one step further.
Vent-Axia for example won the ‘Quiet Mark’ from the noise abatement society last year for two of their fans; The VASF100 and the VASF100T. Boasting the lowest sound rating on the market operating at just 16dB(A) the Silent Fan is the quietest ever intermittent bathroom and toilet fan – a significant 75% quieter than typical intermittent bathroom fans.
Another product worth a mention is the Vent-Axia Shower Fan and Light Kit (VENTALIGHT)
This Vent-A-Light fan and light kit consists of a 100mm axial in-line fan with a detachable mounting foot, 3 meters of flexible ducting, an exterior grille, light transformer and 12V 20W dichroic halogen light assembly. IP44 rated. (Chrome and White bezel included.)
The full ranges available can be found under ‘Ventilation and Cooling’ in our our Electrical Supplies section.
