Vent-Axia acoustic enclosure and top box.
With the negative effect of noise on health now recognised, the Vent-Axia Acoustic Solution has been designed to further reduce the noise levels of the MVHR units to improve the quality of life of inhabitants.
The effects of noise are more than just an annoyance, with research suggesting that raised noise levels in the home can be hazardous to both physical and mental health. The World Health Organization (WHO) claims that increased exposure to noise can lead to cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment, as well as negative effects on sleep. Vent-Axia helps consultants achieve low noise levels with their MVHR range and Acoustic Solutions that are all independently.
Vent-Axia’s new acoustic range includes two solutions. The Acoustic Top Box reduces induct noise at key frequencies in living areas, bedrooms and wet rooms. Meanwhile the Acoustic Enclosure reduces breakout noise from the MVHR unit, lowering noise levels throughout the dwelling, and comes equipped with internal anti-vibration mounts that prevent vibration passing from the unit through the fabric of the building.
Jordan Lilford, product manager, new build residential at Vent-Axia, said: “Noise pollution in the home is not only an annoyance but is also proven to cause ill health so we’re thrilled that The Acoustic Solution has been recognised as an innovative product by the HVR Awards. Our Sentinel Kinetic MVHR range is already quiet but for applications which are particularly noise sensitive The Acoustic Solution reduces sound levels even further.”
