Vent-Axia Wins at Prestigious CIBSE Awards
Volution Group plc (LSE: FAN; “the Group” or “Volution”), a leading supplier of ventilation products to the residential and commercial construction markets, today announces that Vent-Axia is celebrating winning ‘Energy Efficient Product or Innovation of the Year’ at the prestigious Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Building Performance Awards 2017. Scooping the award for its revolutionary Sentinel Kinetic Advance Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR), the Sussex-based company received the accolade at Grosvenor House, Park Lane in London on Tuesday 7th February at an event that was attended by the biggest names in the industry.
Judged by a distinguished panel of industry leaders the ‘Energy Efficient Product or Innovation of the Year’ award recognises building services solutions that reduce the amount of energy used in buildings through the efficient use of energy by the innovation itself. Following a rigorous judging process the ground-breaking Sentinel Kinetic Advance was chosen as the winner of the award. The Judges were impressed by the Sentinel Kinetic Advance’s ingenious use of very modern technology, its ability to “deliver strong performance” as well as “ease of installation” and that internally it is made from all recycled materials.
“We are delighted that our innovative Sentinel Kinetic Advance MVHR has won the “Energy Efficient Product or Innovation of the Year’ award at the CIBSE Awards 2017. This is the first of the next generation of heat recovery units and is setting the standard for future developments” said Mark Hoskins, Managing Director of the Ventilation Group UK.”
