New generation whisper quiet fan is here


There’s a whisper that Fantech has unveiled a smart new way to keep air flowing in rooms where silence is a priority.

The TD Silent range of mixed-flow fans incorporates a number of new technologies that make them extremely quiet.

Fantech Engineering Manager Kerry Dumicich says the revolutionary design is much quieter than other similar products in the market.

“This is a real advance in acoustic technology, he says.

“The breakthrough in noise reduction is due to a specially designed perforated internal skin. Sound waves produced inside the fan are directed through the perforations and are captured by a layer of sound-absorbent material.

“The result is outstanding, a fan that operates very quietly while at the same time maintaining efficiency.”

The most popular model, the TD-500/150 Silent has a sound pressure of only 33dB(A) at low speed and 40dB(A) at high speed.

This makes it perfect as an extract fan in apartments, hotels, and offices where rooms are often close together and the constant sound of the ventilation system could distract the occupants.

Mr Dumicich says it is the small details that help to make the TD Silent so quiet.

“The fan body is held in place with plastic straps at each end which form part of the mounting bracket. These straps grip onto a special ribbed rubber gasket on the fan body that further reduces vibration and noise” he says.

The inlet and outlet spigots also include a rubber gasket which helps to reduce air leakage when connecting to ductwork, making the fan more efficient, but also absorbs vibrations which can sometimes be heard as noise.

All these inbuilt innovations mean that in most cases there is no need for additional attenuation components to reduce noise.

The TD Silent range of fans are now available from Fantech offices and agents.

The range includes a 150 and 200mm spigot diameter model. For more information visit:
