Titon Launches New Improved Sound Attenuator Slot Vent - June 2015
Titon has introduced a new and improved sound attenuation ventilator, the SF Xtra Sound Attenuator, which can achieve up to 44 Dn,e,w.
The new product builds upon the success of Titon’s SF Sound Attenuator, utilising the same acoustic principles while benefitting from the better sealing SF Xtra ventilator. Doing so has led to a marked improvement in possible sound attenuation levels.
Suitable for use on PVCu, timber or aluminium windows, the SF Xtra Sound Attenuator can be purchased in a number of combinations based on different sizes of inner (ventilator) and outer (canopy).
Three vent sizes (V25, V50 and V75) are available, alongside three canopy dimensions (C25, C50 and C75) to suit a variety of attenuation requirements. The pairing of V75 and C75 is capable of achieving an exceptional acoustic rating of Dn,e,w (C;Ctr) = 44 (-2;-3)dB when the vent is open.
Independently tested by Sound Research Laboratories in accordance with BSEN20140-10:1992, ISO140-10:1991, this product is ideal for reducing incoming noise in situations where conventional slot ventilators are unable to assist with acoustic issues. Indeed, the cost effective SF Xtra Sound Attenuator comes fitted with a Titon SF Xtra Ventilator and/or SF Canopy and fits over the standard SF, Trimvent Select or Select Xtra slot size.
The SF Xtra Sound Attenuator is suitable for domestic and commercial installations, while it can be fitted in retrofit applications over an existing 13mm slot. A high performance gasket on the ventilator improves the sealing in adverse conditions, while the vent can also be mounted to deflect air upwards or downwards. Plus, a number of special paint finishes are also available.
Commenting on the new product, Tyson Anderson, Sales & Marketing Director at Titon, said: “The SF Xtra Sound Attenuator is a slot ventilator which provides high levels of sound attenuation when compared to similar products available on the market. These outstanding acoustic capabilities help reduce unwanted noise in a wide variety of applications, either as part of a new build or retrofit project.”
The SF Xtra Sound Attenuator is also extremely effective at reducing pollutants in the home and improving Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), therefore reducing the risk of Toxic Home Syndrome.
