Vent-Axia Sentinel Apex scoops CIBSE Air Quality Award

Vent-Axia has won an award at the CIBSE Building Performance Awards 2024. The Sussex-based company won the ‘Product or Innovation of the Year – Air Quality’ category for its Sentinel Apex, the next generation of commercial heat recovery ventilation. The winners were announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday 29 February 2024 at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, London.

The CIBSE Building Performance Awards (BPAs) 2024 recognises the people, products and projects that demonstrate engineering excellence in the built environment. After a rigorous judging process, the judges selected the Sentinel Apex, which they noted supplies fresh, healthy, filtered air to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) and removes pollutants such as moisture, carbon dioxide and external fumes.

The award judges also noted that Vent-Axia’s Sentinel Apex was developed from the outset with equal consideration to operational performance and whole-life costing, and this is visible in the data available for the product. Other areas that the judges highlighted include Sentinel Apex’s local sourcing and manufacturing in a low-energy facility that delivers on Vent-Axia’s low carbon manufacturing claims, with the judges praising the company for providing excellent resources, including BIM, TM65 and information to help with correct application and sizing.

“We are very proud that our Vent-Axia Sentinel Apex has been recognised by the CIBSE Building Performance Awards. This marks the third industry award for the innovative Sentinel Apex since its launch in November 2023. We understand the challenges that come with designing low carbon buildings, which means every aspect has been considered in the Apex’s development to maximise its energy efficiency and performance while providing excellent IAQ, ultra-low sound levels and thermal comfort. We have also designed the Apex to have a low embodied carbon footprint and to help consultants we have used CIBSE TM65 data collection methodology to provide accurate and detailed carbon information,” says Lorna Kerrigan-Hall, Sales Director C&I at Vent-Axia.
