Vent-Axia has been named as a ‘UK Business Hero’ by the British Chamber of Commerce as part of the Chamber’s campaign to recognise the incredible work UK businesses are undertaking, in the most challenging of years. Nominated by Sussex Chamber of Commerce, the leading British ventilation manufacturer was awarded this prestigious accolade for its valuable work supplying ventilation to COVID-19 hospital wards and field hospitals in unprecedented timescales, throughout lockdown and beyond. The Crawley-based company is delighted to be one of only 399 UK businesses to be given this national recognition.
Vent-Axia, the market-leading British ventilation manufacturer, is delighted to have been named in the UK Business Superbrand list for 2019. The award follows robust independent research commissioned by The Centre for Brand Analysis (TCBA), which identifies the UK’s Superbrands in an annual league table. The ranking, which has been tracking the UK’s leading business-to-business (B2B) brands since 2001, recognises the company for quality, reliability and distinction.
The UK Business Superbrand is considered the Business-to-Business brand barometer. The annual Business Superbrand survey involves voting undertaken by marketing experts and business professionals. Brands do not apply or pay to be considered; rather an extensive database of UK brands is compiled using a wide range of sources from sector reports to industry league tables.
As the UK becomes the first major economy to commit to net-zero emissions, leading British ventilation manufacturer, Vent-Axia is delighted to support BEAMA’s¹ ‘Net-Zero by Design’ report. Launched on 10th September 2019, at the Council Room, One Great George Street, Westminster, London, BEAMA’s report sets out industry’s commitment to meeting the UK’s net-zero 2050 target and its view on how to ensure net-zero can be commercially viable for businesses and consumers.
Vent-Axia is delighted to announce that its ground-breaking Lo-Carbon PoziDry Compact Pro Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) unit has been announced as a finalist at The Electrical Industry Awards 2019. This innovative product combats condensation in mould even in the smallest of homes and has been shortlisted in the ‘Residential/Domestic Product of the Year’ category at these prestigious awards.
Vital ventilation changes in the social housing sector have been highlighted in the publication of the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence’s (NICE) draft Guidelines on Indoor Air Quality. The consultation document ‘Indoor Air Quality at Home’ calls on local authorities to adopt new indoor air quality (IAQ) strategies, urging them to be aware of the air quality in their residents’ homes in order to reduce exposure to indoor pollutants and so help protect tenant health.
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.
