Vent-Axia PureAir Sense

Vent-Axia’s PureAir Sense Shortlisted at SELECT Awards

Leading British ventilation manufacturer Vent-Axia has been named as a finalist at the 2019 SELECT Awards, one of the most prestigious events in the UK’s electrotechnical calendar.

Shortlisted in the ‘Best New Product’ category, the Vent-Axia PureAir Sense is the UK’s only bathroom fan with Odour Sense Technology, offering an exciting step change for the industry and households alike. This follows on from the Vent-Axia PureAir Sense recently winning an award in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019 competition, which recognises exceptional innovation and design quality.

The SELECT Awards are set to take place at the Radisson Blu hotel in Glasgow, the premier awards venue in Scotland, on Friday, 11th October 2019. The black tie event promises to be an excellent social and networking occasion, celebrating the highest standards in the industry. The awards commend innovation across the industry in Scotland and are organised by SELECT, the trade association for the electrical contracting industry in Scotland.

“We’re delighted to have been shortlisted at these important industry awards. The unique PureAir Sense offers outstanding design quality and sophisticated ventilation to ensure good indoor air quality (IAQ) for households” said Mick Daniels, Sales Director – Vent-Axia Distribution. “As finalists at the SELECT Awards, it’s wonderful to have this product recognised by the Scottish electrotechnical industry and to be identified as a true innovator and market leader.”

Designed to improve the air households breathe, the Vent-Axia PureAir Sense is equipped with a pioneering odour sensor that increases airflow when the air is poor, helping ensure a healthy living environment. When the sensor detects a strong odour, the fan speed increases and quickly extracts the odour to help ensure the air always feels fresh. A step change for the electrical sector, the PureAir Sense is the first fan in the UK to feature Odour Sense Technology.

This premium fan is set to be an ideal addition to customers’ bathrooms. An attractive choice for households, the Vent-Axia PureAir Sense’s Odour Sense Technology helps give peace of mind that air is fresh, while combining a host of intelligent features, quiet operation and an attractive design, as well as featuring a simple to use LED touch panel and app control functions. With a minimal design and low noise levels of 19dB(A) the PureAir Sense is unobtrusive, fitting easily into bathroom designs.

Marking the next generation of sophisticated controls, the Vent-Axia PureAir Sense is delivered factory set for continuous operation at low speed with the fan featuring an adjustable timer which can be triggered via a switch live or light sensor. This intuitive sensor recognises room occupancy through light movement and shadows, but it can distinguish between car headlights flashing and people moving about to avoid nuisance running. A delay-on feature can also be set to avoid the fan being triggered in the night during quick bathroom visits. The light sensor also acts as an overrun timer, without having to be controlled through the light switch. This means households with a basic fan can upgrade to a timer fan without having to carry out costly and time-consuming rewiring.

Leading the way in ventilation, the Vent-Axia PureAir Sense introduces an intelligent, fully automatic humidistat which helps with moisture control. This means the fan learns to run only when it can make a difference to IAQ. Continually monitoring and recording the moisture content the PureAir Sense maps a home’s annual humidity profile. This process enables the fan to run only when it can lower the moisture content in the air, reducing nuisance running and helping ensure a healthy environment.

The fan is also popular with electricians since it is quick and easy to install with the fan delivered with factory settings that will be perfect for the majority of projects. This means the fan install only involves fitting and there is no need for set up. If a customer requires additional customisation, the fan’s features can easily be altered via a user-friendly LED touch panel or a downloadable app on a smart phone.

Finally, to demonstrate Vent-Axia’s belief in the quality of this fan, the PureAir Sense comes with a 7-year guarantee, so electricians can fit and forget the fan, confident that it will create fewer callbacks. Plus, further adding to install flexibility the Vent-Axia PureAir Sense offers a powerful airflow of up to 39l/s which means it can cope with long ducts and bends up to 2m without compromising on ventilation.
