Xpelair Ventilation has expanded its Avantgarde range of extract ventilators with the Avantgarde DC, designed to one of the most energy-efficient ventilation solutions on the market. Ideal for new build and refurbishment, this range features Xpelair’s most advanced DC motor. Units can deliver intermittent or continuous ventilation, with an optional pre-trickle function and boost speed selectable at point of installation.

The new units also have a stylish new grille and low-energy internal instant shutter mechanism to protect against external noise ingress, draught and heat loss. There are 100 and 150 mm units, which comply with the requirements of the Building Regulations. They can be used as a whole-house decentralised mechanical ventilation system.

There are four options, including one using relative humidity as the trigger point. Other control options include a pullcord time adjustable up to 30 minutes and integral PIR sensor.
