Sussex-based ventilation manufacturer Vent-Axia has won a Red Dot Award for its PureAir Sense, reportedly the UK’s only bathroom fan with odour sense technology.
Designed to improve indoor air quality, the Vent-Axia PureAir Sense is equipped with an odour sensor that increases airflow when the air in a home is poor.
The Vent-Axia PureAir Sense features an adjustable timer which can be triggered via a switch live or light sensor.
This light sensor recognises room occupancy through movement and also acts as an overrun timer, without having to be controlled through the light switch.
In addition, the Vent-Axia PureAir Sense introduces an automatic humidistat which helps with moisture control and means the fan runs only when it can make a difference to internal air quality.
Commenting on the award win product manager at Vent-Axia Stephen Totman, said: “We are delighted to win a prestigious Red Dot Award which recognises the outstanding design quality of the PureAir Sense and is an independent validation of the true uniqueness of this fan.
“Vent-Axia has been leading the way in innovative fan design for over 80 years and we are committed to producing ground-breaking design for years to come.
Stephen Totman went on to say: “As the health implications associated with poor indoor air quality continue to gain coverage in the media, consumers are demanding more effective ventilation in their homes.
“The launch of the UK Government’s Clean Air Strategy has further increased this focus.
“As a result, consumers are demanding sophisticated ventilation that will help improve indoor air quality, making the PureAir Sense an attractive option for households”
