Vent-Trex from Titon Celebrates 10 Years of Extracting Standards Across the UK

Vent-Trex, the highly effective combined over-head extract fan and trickle ventilator, distributed by Titon, is celebrating more than 10 years of efficient installations. Ideal for refurbishment situations, in all window types, without damaging the fabric of the building, Vent-Trex provides a minimum Equivalent Area (EA) of 2500mm² and extract ventilation rates, to assist in compliance with the latest Building Regulations.

The specification and fitting of Vent-Trex ensures there is no detrimental visual impact to the outside of the building. The product is easy to install, in kitchens and bathrooms, and fits conveniently and discreetly just above window frames reducing the overall frame height by only 30mm, (as illustrated in the image), to ensure low installation costs. Designed to make specification simple, the bathroom variation has a single speed of 15 l/s, while the model developed for kitchen installation has two speeds; 30 l/s and 60 l/s, subject to window size. Both products have an IP24 rating. To ensure versatility, Vent-Trex also has variants which make the product suitable for the varying demands of different local authorities, including ‘continuous power’ or ‘continuous running’ versions for the benefit of end-users, to maintain consistent air-flow or intermittent usage, as required.

Paul Duke, Titon’s Technical Manager, said: “Vent-Trex has been specified and successfully installed by local authorities and homeowners throughout the UK for more than 10 years. It has proved to be a very reliable product, operating successfully to improve extraction and ventilation in domestic properties. It can also be fitted to solve extract ventilation issues during any window replacement programme, which can save time and money.” 

For ease of use, Vent-Trex features a pull cord switch and power light, dependent on the model and a humidistat option is also available. Plus, the combination of low energy usage, as well as easy cleaning and maintenance helps ensure efficiency with minimum effort. For added peace of mind, all units are supplied with a two year guarantee as standard.
