Building Regulations Approved Document F gives examples of four main methods of ventilation. System 3, Continuous mechanical extract ventilation can be achieved using a single centralised extract unit such as the Sentinel Multivent ducted to ‘wet’ rooms (kitchen, bathroom, en-suite and WC) or by decentralised individual fans, such as the Lo-Carbon Centra in the ‘wet’ rooms. The fans run continuously at near silent levels providing a simple and effective form of ventilation.
SELV (Safety Extra Low Voltage) is designed for areas where a fan can be installed within Zone 1 in a room where there is a fixed bath or shower. Ingress Protected (IP) to IPX7 Lo-Carbon Centra SELV can be fitted safely within the spray area. The separate transformer can be mounted away from the spray zone and out of reach from the bath or shower.
The Lo-Carbon Centra meets the latest requirements of the Building Regulations Approved Document F for wholehouse system ventilation.
Selection of the two normal flow rates (6l/s or 9l/s) is via a simple ‘jumper’ on the control board. Different methods are available for operating boost speed from a simple switched live to integral humidistat or CO2 sensor. See individual models for further details.
The attractive and discreet styling of the Vent-Axia Lo-Carbon Centra will complement the décor of any new home while virtually silent operation ensures optimum ventilation is achieved without intrusive noise.
dMEV version recognised in SAP Appendix Q. Lo-Carbon Centra has a specific fan power of only 0.18 W/l/s in through-the-wall kitchen applications.
