Care Homes Benefit From Polypipe Ventilation
Domus ducting and Silavent Curzon fans from Polypipe Ventilation, manufacturer of market leading, energy-saving domestic and light commercial ventilation systems, have been specified and installed in private sector care homes across the UK by LNT Construction Ltd.
Committed to building 1000 beds per year predominantly for its own carehome group Ideal Care Homes, LNT Construction works to a very high standard and the company has won a number of awards for its design and build. The care homes are purpose built, with every thought given to the well-being of the residents.
Kevin Newell, Mechanical & Electrical Buyer at LNT Construction, specified the Domus ducting and Silavent Curzon fans from Polypipe Ventilation for its care homes because they are “readily available locally, good product and good value for money”.
The service supplied by the company has also proved a winning formula: “Considering the present economic climate, Polypipe have responded very well to our requirements and are working with us to develop a new Curzon fan that gives us the opportunity to make our buildings more carbon neutral”.
Domus PV Low Profile 225 is used across LNT care homes. An ultra low profile system (234 x 29mm), the PV Low Profile 225 design enables concealment when installed along the top of wall units or when fitted in ceiling voids, cavity walls and other confined spaces. Domus duct systems are specifically designed to optimise air flow energy-efficiency, with minimal air leakage and moisture leakage from condensate eliminated.
The Domus ducting is being used with Silavent Curzon fans from Polypipe. A quiet centrifugal fan, complying with Building Regulations (F1), they are nonetheless very powerful and are designed to perform well when working with longer duct runs, making them ideally suited to use in larger properties such as care homes. Curzon fans come with a large range of options including pull-cord, timer and humidity control.
Domus ducting and Silavent Curzon fans have most recently been installed in Ideal Care Homes in Bolton on Dearn, Sutton In Ashfield, Wigan and West Bromwich, with two more due for completion shortly in Stockport and Bulwell.
