The GRB Galaxy Roof Mounting Belt Driven Twin fan range represents the latest development from Vent-Axia in high performance, run and standby twin fan. Designed to be controlled inconjunction with Vent-Axia Trakmaster twin fan controller range, the total package offers the end user flexibility when interfaced with or without a (BMS) Building Management Systems, such as: manual selection; 12/24hr auto changeover ensuring the extended life of the fan and motor; night setback during low levels of occupancy, for energy management control during 24hr extraction.
The unit casing is manufactured from mill finished aluminium fitted with discharge aluminium weather louvre with bird mesh as standard. Assembly is controlled to BS EN ISO 9001.
Individual gravity return shutters are fitted as standard to prevent air recirculation through the standby fan or the system during shut down periods. Galaxy Roof Mounting Fans are only suitable for horizontal mounting. When installed on a shallow pitch roof a special upstand will needed to compensate for the angular difference – to be manufactured by others.
To meet COSHH requirements, double pole service isolator switches are fitted and pre-wired from the fans and mounted to the outer casing to reduce installation time and cost. Access to the fan section is via an easily removed top access panel for cleaning and maintenance during shut down periods.
The Galaxy range is available in four models with extract performance ranging from 0.02m³/s up to 2.5m³/s (720m³/h to 9000m³/h), with pressure characteristics of up 400Pa. All models are supplied with inlet spigots on the underside of the unit casing and an HET9TF discharge anodised aluminium weather louvre.
