Part F compliance: don’t guess - calculate! 08/2007

Titon, one of Europe’s market leaders in ventilation, has launched a CD-based Part F System 1 calculator that assists fabricators or builders in calculating the background ventilation requirement for domestic properties.

The new Part F (Ventilation) Building Regulation requires the background ventilation to be calculated using a number of variables based on building design and occupancy. To achieve compliance with Part F it is important that estimators have an efficient and easy to use method to work out the correct whole building background ventilation requirement. The Titon Part F System 1 calculator simplifies this process.

Using criteria including the number of bedrooms (both single and double), number of storeys, the floor area of the dwelling and the number of facades, Titon’s Part F Calculator confirms how many of its new high performing ventilators, designed specifically to comply with the revised Part F, are needed to fulfil the total EA (equivalent area) requirement. This will allow many more specifiers to stay with the traditional System 1 route to compliance, as these new Titon vents take up no more space than their predecessors, and less space than the competition.

Among the products on the CD are the new Trimvent Select Xtra range and the new TV4000 Hi Lift and TV90 Hi Lift aluminium vent ranges.

The Calculator is free on request and one of Titon’s knowledgeable sales representatives will be happy to demonstrate the free Calculator CD.

Tyson Anderson, Titon’s Marketing Director said: "At Titon we are committed to making life straightforward for our customers. Not only have we been the first to launch a new range of Part F System 1 accommodating products, we’ve also created the Calculator to make specification simple. We are looking forward to helping our customers comply with Part F with minimum work and maximum efficiency."
