Versatile ventilation with HiB
HiB has consolidated its Hush and Breeze ventilation ranges with the launch of two new Selv fans.
Directly appealing to fashion-forward homeowners, the new fans leverage burgeoning consumer demand for sleek and contemporary bathroom design.
Furthermore, the added protection of Selv provides electricians with an extra layer of safety and total confidence in their choice of ventilation solution - and consequently real peace of mind for occupants too.
Hush (pictured) and Breeze, available in white or chrome, combine muted yet powerful extraction with modern chic. The ability to mount these fans on either the ceiling or the wall allows consumers the freedom to choose what works best for their particular space, without interrupting their carefully planned decor.
To ensure the room remains damp-free, Hush and Breeze offer extraction rates of 86m?/hr and 77cu.m/hr respectively, exceeding the minimum requirement of 54cu.m/hr. What's more, the fans also operate at near silent noise levels of only 25dB and 32dB, meaning the atmosphere remains undisturbed.
Steve Kaye, marketing director at HiB, says: "Unfortunately, fans are often seen as an afterthought by installers, retailers - and consumers, too. However, it is a critical consideration; after all, there is no point in splashing out on a beautiful bathroom only to let it become ruined by damp and mould.
"Hush and Breeze have proved a huge hit with homeowners so far - however, despite their IPX4 rating, we've noted a trend amongst installers for the enhanced protection of Selv. The extension of our existing ranges provides them with a product they feel entirely confident fitting and will enable them to create a complete bathroom scheme for the end user, boasting an effective ventilation solution without needing to compromise on style."
