Vent-Axia Supports Noise Action Week with its Silent Fan

Vent-Axia, leaders in energy efficient ventilation, is delighted to be supporting Noise Action Week (21-25 May 2012) by offering a solution to noisy extract fans with its innovative Silent Fan.

Recently awarded the Quiet Mark 2012 by the Noise Abatement Society the Silent Fan boasts 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.

“We are delighted to be supporting Noise Action Week since the initiative offers the opportunity to focus the attention on the problems excessive noise can cause for us all. Today with many of us leading busy lives it is more important than ever before to be able to relax in comfort and to have a good night’s sleep. Obtrusive extractor fans can be irritating, however, switching off a noisy extract fan is not the answer since this can result in mould growth and poor indoor air quality. Instead our new Silent Fan puts an end to the issue of noisy bathroom and toilet extract fans once and for all,” said Lee Nurse, Marketing Director at Vent-Axia.

Providing stylish and silent ventilation without compromising on performance, the Silent Fan overcomes the problem of noisy obtrusive bathroom fans, allowing households to relax in comfort free from noise-related stress. A recent survey commissioned by Vent-Axia showed that over 40% of people said that they or their children have been woken in the night by a noisy bathroom fan. This noise can lead to households turning off their extract fans. But with condensation remaining a major problem in many homes turning off a bathroom fan can result in damage to the fabric of the properties, mould growth and poor air quality, which can cause health issues.

Although many who live and sleep along busy roads all over the UK, learn to live with and filter out ambient noise from their locality, it is often the sudden sound from a noisy extract fan in the bathroom or toilet that wakes them at night or simply prevents them from relaxing. The survey also showed that 55% of respondents found a noisy extract fan the most annoying sound that could be heard in the bathroom, overtaking screaming children or draughts whistling through badly fitting windows.

Simple to install and maintain, the Silent Fan is the perfect choice for every home. Designed for wall, ceiling, window and panel mounting it will also fit into existing 100mm ducts, making it ideal for replacement applications.

A single 100mm axial fan capable of two-speed operation the Silent fan performs at 26l/s and so comfortably meets the ventilation requirements of most bathrooms and toilets. Available as a standard model (VASF100) or as an option with an overrun timer (VASF100T) which is adjustable between 5 and 30 minutes the Silent Fan complies fully with Building Regulations Part F and L. Also compatible with low energy lighting, the Silent Fan is a true all rounder!
