Our products are the business

Within the general commercial sector Passivent’s products are used in a variety of applications from energy innovation centres, business incubation centres and industrial bakeries to surface treatment plants, commercial offices and MOD facilities. All of these buildings and many others have used one or more of our natural or hybrid ventilation products including roof terminals, window & wall ventilators, hybrid ventilation products, natural daylighting products and acoustic air transfer units.

A safe pair of hands

Our long-standing technical reputation is based on more than 38 years of working closely with our customers to gain an in-depth understanding of their natural or hybrid ventilation requirements. Our products comply with the highest standards of quality (ISO 9001), health and safety (ISO 45001) and environmental management (ISO 14001) and are manufactured in the UK at our site in Nottinghamshire.

Comprehensive technical support

Our support to architects, consultants and contractors ensures each project runs as smoothly as possible and achieves the best possible natural or hybrid ventilation strategy. Passivent’s experienced Technical, Sales and Commissioning teams are always on hand to add extra value to your project providing customers with a full range of support which includes early design guidance, bulk air flow calculations, thermal modelling (when required), value engineered solutions and commissioning or after-sales services. Other technical support includes structured quotes, site visits, CPDs and a wealth of technical information such as product literature, case studies, BIM objects, NBS specifications, specification clauses, specification documents and sample wiring diagrams.

Arup’s acoustic experts and product designers worked with Passivent to ensure that SoundScoop achieves market leading acoustic attenuation and airflow. We get very excited about clever products like SoundScoop that can simultaneously improve occupant wellbeing and building efficiency. I’m delighted that an independent team from Arup Associates chose to specify SoundScoop on BSkyB – it’s validation of the product’s market leading performance. I understand that a year after opening, it continues to perform well.
