plastic waste

With over 1 million tonnes of plastic going to landfill every year in the UK alone, industry-leading ventilation company Vent-Axia is helping social housing providers reduce their environmental impact by designing modular products to reduce plastic waste. By carefully considering the design of its products, Vent-Axia’s latest energy efficient fans are even easier to repair and recycle, reducing carbon footprints and helping make ventilation even more cost effective for social housing providers.

In the past many manufacturers have recommended that if a fan has a fault it should be replaced. Not only is this expensive when the fan has exceeded its warranty period, but a lot of unnecessary waste is sent to landfill. Vent-Axia has now tackled this issue head on designing fans, such as the Lo-Carbon Revive, which have individual modular components that can all be replaced separately. So, if a Lo-Carbon Revive develops a fault it’s likely that a new spare part can be easily ordered, avoiding paying for a completely new fan. This considerably reduces the amount of plastic waste and, should the exterior of the unit require replacing, all Lo-Carbon Revive fans are made with recyclable ABS plastic.

Lo-carbon Pozidry Compact Pro

Offering a totally new way of thinking about Positive Input Ventilation (PIV), Vent-Axia’s innovative new Lo-Carbon PoziDry Compact Pro is the ideal solution for combating condensation and mould in problem properties without a loft. Ultra small and light, the unit can fit in the smallest of spaces and a removable inner cartridge makes installation and maintenance a breeze.
Vent-Axia has spent considerable R&D time thinking outside the box to come up with an innovative solution inside the box. The unique PoziDry Compact Pro has been designed to be the smallest on the market, making it easy to install even in the tiniest apartments. Half the size of conventional boxed PIV units the PoziDry Compact Pro is still powerful enough to effectively tackle condensation and mould. With the unit’s cross section measuring only 200mm by 200mm the PoziDry Compact Pro is so small that it can fit inside the decorative boxing that is used to cover its ducting.

Breaking the mould

Ventilation experts are now offering a condensation and mould service to landlords to help them eradicate this costly problem. Tom Wodcke, Product Marketing Manager at Vent-Axia explains there is now a raft of tools available to help landlords simply and effectively deal with condensation and mould.

Condensation and mould can be hard to treat... Since condensation and mould is such a widespread issue it is not surprising it is to be addressed by the government with the proposed Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Bill. Landlords may soon be obliged to ensure fire safety, adequate heating and sufficient ventilation plus, under the proposed Bill, residents would have the right to sue landlords who let properties that aren’t “fit for human habitation”.
