If you are preparing for a towering challenge in the New Year, look no further when it comes to innovative ventilation for your planned refurbishment project than the award winning MEV Spider.
The MEV Spider is a continuous running mechanical extract ventilation (MEV) system, with eco-friendly characteristics, ideal for retrofitting. It also meets SAP for ventilation and can be fitted by one of our BPEC approved ventilation installers.
Designed with multiple extract points which are ducted to a central system, it works by drawing moisture laden air out of the ‘wet room’ areas of the homes, (kitchens and bathrooms) extracting it out to atmosphere. What’s more, the clever MEV Spider also minimizes the movement of humidity to other rooms, controlling humidity levels and preventing the formation of condensation and mould problems. The unit has intelligent humidity tracking and remote controls as standard.
The energy efficient MEV Spider was chosen by City West Housing Trust as the ventilation system to meet Building Regulations Part F for their mammoth challenge. The refurbishment of Engels House, a 10- storey concrete tower block in Barton Village, Salford. Built in the 1960s the high rise had problems with heat loss, fuel poverty and condensation and mould. Since the retrofit project was completed in March 2012, Engels has been completely transformed and is super energy efficient complete with thermal cladding and an EcoPod heating system. After sealing up the building and sorting out the fuel poverty issue, the MEV Spider was installed to provide the residents with good indoor air quality vital for a comfortable and healthy living environment all year round– free from condensation and mould.
