National Ventilation is delighted to announce that it has been nominated in the ‘Best New Product’ category at the prestigious Electrical Wholesaler Awards 2021. The company’s Monsoon Shower Extract Fan Kits are a finalist in this important category with the winner chosen, in part, via an industry vote. With voting closing on Friday, 30th April, the Monsoon Shower Extract Kits now need votes from the industry for a chance to be named as winners. The winners will be announced at a live presentation on Thursday, 20th May.
The Electrical Wholesaler Awards recognises excellence and achievement across the electrical wholesaling sector. Winners are decided via a two-step process with finalists firstly facing the industry vote before being critiqued by a specially selected judging panel, comprised of individuals with extensive industry knowledge and experience. This process is designed to ensure that only the very best pick up a coveted stamp of industry approval.
“We are thrilled that our Monsoon Shower Extract Fan Kits have been nominated at these important industry awards”, says Robin Francis, Managing Director at National Ventilation. “Offering super-fast and easy installation, as well as high performance and low power consumption, the kits have everything electricians need for the job included in the box so they can just grab the kit and go. This also means less time on site, saving time which saves money and, in a pandemic, also offers a safer fit with less time in a customer’s home.”
National Ventilation’s popular Monsoon Shower Extract Fans were launched in kit form to provide a one-box solution for a super-fast installation. Designed to make both electricians and electrical wholesalers’ lives easier, there are now two new boxed-options available: the Monsoon Shower Extract Kit with a shower grille and the Monsoon Showerlite LED Extract Kit with an energy-saving LED shower light to provide illumination, as well as extraction.
Allowing electricians to easily grab a kit and go, the Monsoon Shower Fan Kits incorporate everything required for a super-fast install, both kits contain a 100mm UMD100T mixed flow in-line fan, 6m of PVC flexible ducting, an external fixed grille and cable ties. The Monsoon Shower Extract Kit also contains two internal diffusers, while the Monsoon Showerlite LED Extract Kit features an LED light and two air diffusers. Both types of diffuser come with a choice of white and chrome covers meaning the fan can be matched to a household’s décor. Plus, as UK-manufactured premium-build fans both kits also come with a 5-year warranty.
As a one-box solution the new kit form also simplifies things for electrical wholesalers. Previously the parts needed to install the Monsoon Shower Extract fans were ordered and sold separately, but with the new kit option everything is in one box. For counter staff this means they no longer need to go back and forth from the warehouse to find all the different parts required for an install while their customer waits – a time saving for both the wholesaler and the electrician.
Made in the UK, the Monsoon Shower Fan kits combine high extract performance of up to 198m3/h with power consumption as low as 17-19W and low noise levels of just 28dB(A) on low speed. The fans are IPX4-rated so can be safely installed in the splash zone. Both kits feature a two-speed motor with the option of overrun timer from 2 to 30 minutes, with the Monsoon Shower Fans’ motor is equipped with Standard Thermal Overload Protection for extra safety. Meanwhile, the Monsoon Showerlite LED Extract Kit also features LED technology offering low-energy illumination which uses 3W of energy compared to standard dichroic lamps which use 20W.
Offering a choice of extract or extract with illumination, the Monsoon Shower Fans will enhance any bathroom providing improved indoor air quality and effectively tackling condensation and mould. Offering install flexibility, the 100mm fans are easy to retrofit in existing bathroom as well as for new builds. The 6m of flexible PVC ducting enables electricians to adapt the installation to any size room.
