our new Silent Fan puts an end to the issue of noisy bathroom and toilet extract fans

Vent-Axia’s new Silent Fan has been awarded the Quiet Mark 2012 by the Noise Abatement Society and features on the new online Quiet Mark Directory ( launched today. 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.

A mark of approval awarded by the Noise Abatement Society, the Quiet Mark is given to world-wide manufacturers of the quietest products on the market and is validated by UK’s Association of Noise Consultants. The objective of the initiative is to reduce noise and so achieve a healthier stress-free living and working environment. The Quiet Mark 2012 award therefore enables consumers and specifiers to make an informed choice allowing them to easily select quieter products via the newly launched on-line Quiet Mark Directory

“We are delighted that the Vent-Axia Silent Fan has been awarded the Quiet Mark since it will allow households to easily identify a solution to noisy bathroom fans. 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. Switching off a noisy extract fan is not the answer since this can result in mould growth and poor indoor air quality which can lead to building damage and health issues. 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 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.

Gloria Elliott, CE of the Noise Abatement Society said: “People don’t use their extractor fans because they are generally irritatingly noisy, so the Vent-Axia Silent Fan will come as peaceful relief, deserving its validated Quiet Mark 2012.”

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!
