Featuring Xpelair’s brand new GhostTM Air Movement Technology, Simply SilentTM uses the latest innovations in ventilation technology to deliver near-silent running. It is the first in a whole platform of solutions using the technology which are set to be introduced by Xpelair over the coming months and beyond.
The 4”/100mm fan uses long-life silent running motors and precision engineered components to avoid all mechanical noise, whilst advanced air flow management eliminates turbulence and irregular air flow paths within the fan. As a result, under independent testing Simply SilentTM has recorded a sound pressure level of 16dBA at 15l/s – making it the quietest bathroom fan on the market.
It also offers So Simple Installation, with a range of smart and innovative features for quick, simple and hassle-free installation including a revolutionary wall kit, which means the outer grille can be fitted from the inside, hook and clip fan cover with no screws and a quick-fit clamp, which allows the fan to be secured simply to ceilings and panels for ease and rapid installation.
For homeowners, the fan combines high performance, effectively eliminating humidity, condensation and odour to improve air quality in bathrooms, shower rooms, cloakrooms and toilets, with near-silent running and stylish design. It offers a choice of square or round fascias in a distinctive ice white finish to complement any bathroom interior.
Xpelair’s commitment to develop exciting and innovative new products using the GhostTM Air Movement Technology has been developed in response to an independent study, which shows over 14 million UK adults are being affected by having a noisy bathroom fan in their home.
The study, commissioned by Xpelair, revealed that just under a half of the British adult population rated their existing bathroom fan as noisy, whilst a quarter of those described it as annoyingly noisy. The survey results also highlighted the impact that bathroom fans are having on poor sleep, with over 4.5 million adults having been woken up or kept awake by a noisy fan.
Lee Stones, Category Manager at Xpelair, said: “Unlike some of our competitors that have introduced one or two silent products, our mission is to make all of our bathroom fans silent and really set the industry benchmark.
“A chronic lack of sleep affects over a third of the British public, with stress and taking work home blamed as the key culprits. However, noise is another critical factor that is keeping people up at night and the bathroom fan is one of the main offenders.
“Simply SilentTM is the first demonstration of this mission, a genuinely innovative product which sets the standard in the domestic ventilation market, and it will be closely followed by a constant volume model with integral hour run meter, which is particularly suited for the social housing sector.”
