Vent-Axia is supporting Noise Action Week (May 21-26 2018) for the sixth year in a row.
Co-ordinated by Environmental Protection UK, Noise Action Week aims to raise awareness of the cost of noise to the health and well-being of communities and individuals, as well as helping tackle noise problems in our neighbourhoods.
Vent-Axia also aims to help tackle household noise through a focus on continuing improvement through its research and development, to produce the quietest products on the market including the Lo-Carbon Svara and the Silent Fan, which both have a Quiet Mark.
Leading the way in silent fan design, Vent-Axia is committed to reducing sound levels in its products to help create a peaceful home environment. Sound levels are an important comfort issue, with nuisance noise causing unnecessary stress in the home.
A raft of research has highlighted the detrimental health impact of noise, with the chief medical officer’s 2017 Annual Report, Health Impacts of all Pollution, confirming the effects of noise pollution and stating: “Noise stands second to poor air quality in terms of the burden of ill health caused by a single pollutant.”
Jenny Smith, marketing manager at Vent-Axia, said: “We are delighted to once again be supporting Noise Action Week. Excessive noise causes many problems and is now proven to affect our health and well-being, so this initiative is an important way of highlighting the benefits of noise reduction.
“At Vent-Axia we are committed to developing quiet ventilation solutions that meet our customers’ needs. We have a sound laboratory and use computational fluid dynamics to ensure we can provide the quietest ventilation on the market.”
