Polypipe Ventilation, manufacturer of market-leading domestic and light commercial ventilation systems, has launched the new Silavent Sapphire range of bathroom and kitchen intermittent extract fans and Decentralised Mechanical Extract Ventilation (dMEV) units in a contemporary and minimalist design, coupled with extremely quiet performance.

As a trusted British brand which has delivered premium ventilation technology for many years, Polypipe Ventilation has invested considerably into its Silavent products. Polypipe Ventilation’s latest addition to its Silavent portfolio is the brand new Silavent Sapphire range, featuring axial and centrifugal dMEV, and intermittent axial, in-line and centrifugal bathroom and kitchen fans.

The highly desirable Sapphire fans are available as both standard and Green Line energy efficient models, with extremely low Specific Fan Powers (SFP) to comply with Building Regulations at an extremely attractive price point - making them perfect for new builds as well as replacements for home owners looking to reduce their carbon footprint. 

Incorporating the same aesthetically pleasing design across the full Sapphire range, the stylish axial and centrifugal dMEV units provide quiet, continuous ventilation to any single wet room.  They also operate with an extremely low SFP, down to 0.19W/(l/s), and as an added benefit to developers, specifiers and contractors alike, will help to lower a property’s Dwelling Emission Rate (DER) and therefore provide a higher SAP rating.

The new Silavent Sapphire dMEV and intermittent extract fans boast excellent performance levels - as to be expected from Silavent products - coupled with very quiet operation down to 12dB(A) for dMEV and 32dB(A) for intermittent extract fans.  They have been designed to be both discreet and contemporary, making them suitable for all interior design styles.  Furthermore, Polypipe has uniquely designed the 100mm axial range with interchangeable fascias to suit customer tastes and decor.

Silavent Sapphire models are available with a variety of user-friendly control options, including timer, pull cord and humidity-sensing versions.  In addition to these, the range also features an innovative ‘silent’ back draught shutter, low voltage (SELV) variants for installation within zone 1 (the splash area) and retail pre-pack options – ideal for displaying within retail environments. An attractive LED light fitting is also specially available for the in-line fans, making them ideal for shower installations.

Manufactured in UK, the Silavent Sapphire dMEV and intermittent extract fans are competitively priced and come with a two year warranty as standard.  They form part of the Silavent range which, in addition to fans, also features the award winning HRX range of Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) appliances with one of the highest available heat exchange efficiencies on the Performance Characteristics Database (previously known as SAP Appendix Q).

Silavent fans have a well deserved reputation for quality, supported by excellent technical support, from a market leading manufacturer and designer.  Polypipe Ventilation is well placed to offer immediate, practical solutions to Building Regulations Parts F & L.  The company continues to provide differentiated solutions in the private and social housing sectors, transforming the way developers, specifiers, installers, home owners and distributors meet emerging environmental standards.
