Vent-Axia Supports Noise Action Week


Leading British fan manufacturer Vent-Axia is delighted to be supporting Noise Action Week (23-28 May 2016), which is coordinated by Environmental Protection UK. Sound levels are an important comfort issue for households with nuisance noise causing unnecessary stress in the home. Vent-Axia is therefore committed to reducing sound levels in its products to help create a peaceful home environment.

Vent-Axia leads the way in ventilation providing some of the quietest products on the market. In existing homes Vent-Axia offers a solution to noisy extract fans with its innovative Silent Fan which is ideal for refurbishment projects. Holding the Noise Abatement Society’s Quiet Mark 2016, the Silent Fan is the quietest intermittent fan available, operating at just 14dBA. Plus the launch of its new improved and redesigned Silent Fan now offers ‘visual’ silence as well as acoustic silence. The new aesthetics of the fan boast simple, clean lines with an attractive slimline fascia that looks like a bathroom tile ensuring it is unobtrusive for households.va2

Meanwhile, the social housing sector has very specific set of needs when it comes to ventilation. Vent-Axia’s new Lo-Carbon Revive has been designed to meet these needs providing good indoor air quality and comfort for tenants while being quick and easy to install, low maintenance and reliable. With tenant satisfaction vital, Vent-Axia’s R&D department has developed Revive’s innovative Multi-Vortex™ technology which has a high-pressure hybrid impellor that is powerful and efficient, yet quiet. The fan operates discreetly providing continuous ventilation, removing moisture and stale air, leaving a comfortable home environment.

For the New Build sector, Vent-Axia has achieved the holy grail of high efficiency and low sound levels with its Sentinel Kinetic Advance Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR). Topping the PCDB list with exceptional efficiency, near silent operation, high pressure development and improved indoor air quality, the Advance also features time-saving commissioning and control via a unique web-enabled App. Featuring trickle settings of up to 40% that still stay below 20dBA the Advance boasts a specific fan power (SFP) as low as 0.38W/l/s, combined with 93% heat recovery and a high pressure airflow of 100l/s at 150Pa. Maximised airflows and minimised noise and energy are achieved through cutting-edge EC motor and highly sculpted interiors.

We are delighted to be supporting Noise Action Week again this year since the initiative focuses attention on the problems excessive noise can cause for us all. At Vent-Axia we are committed to developing ventilation solutions that meet our customers’ needs. Sound levels are very important to our customers so our R&D department works hard to lead the way in developing quiet ventilation technology. At Vent-Axia we are serious about sound levels which is why we have invested in our sound laboratory and use computational fluid dynamics to ensure we can provide the quietest ventilation on the market,” said Jenny Smith, Marketing Manager at Vent-Axia.

The Quiet Mark 2016 is the international mark of approval from the UK’s Noise Abatement Society, endorsed by DEFRA, awarding the quietest high performance technology and solutions to reduce unwanted noise in our environment. The Quiet Mark is awarded following rigorous testing and approval from accredited acoustic experts, including the Association of Noise Consultants.
