The SELECT Industry Awards includes categories covering a wide range of disciplines and services. It celebrates innovation and rewards individuals and Members across the industry.

“We are delighted that the innovative Deluxe Quick Internal Fit Wall Kit has been recognised in these important industry awards” said Clive Britton, Sales Director at Manrose. “The Wall Kit is proving very popular with installers since it can be fitted from inside the property so it offers quicker and much safer ventilation installations. It also helps installers avoid the worst of the British weather too!!”

Using patented technology, the Deluxe Quick Internal Fit Wall Kit is a new breed of wall kit which can be installed entirely from the inside of a property. It has no loose parts and the external grille is fixed to the wall liner eliminating the risk of dropping grilles from scaffolding or falls from height, reducing installation time and removing the need for costly and time-consuming external grille fitting involving scaffolding or ladders. No matter what the height or what the weather, this wall kit is quick, easy and safe to install.

Ideal for high-rise applications, first floor bathrooms and anywhere that is not readily accessible from the outside, the innovative Wall Kit simply pushes through a hole from the inside of the building. An external grille is then deployed that doesn’t require the installer to reach through the entire length of the wall tube, and spring pins hold the wall kit securely in place. Notches in the internal face allow it to be simply aligned and then the external grille and seal can be pulled back against the external wall so a tight fit can be achieved. This covers up break-out from the external surface and provides water ingress protection, resulting in a neat and secure installation. The Wall Kit is also incredibly versatile, being suitable for differing wall thicknesses and fan types, including those with and without integral shutters.

The Wall Kit has other benefits too. It is suitable for intermittent and continuous running fans, due to its low resistance external grille, and the tubes’ extendable length means the Wall Kit can be used in a wider range of properties than other, less adjustable kits. The Wall Kit is adjustable, so removes the need for cutting on-site and can accommodate wall thicknesses from 225mm up to 390mm.

The Internal Fit Wall Kit is suitable for a wide range of 100mm fans. To allow a variety of fans or grilles to be installed the Wall Kit has been designed so the internal flange thickness is minimised. The Wall Kit offers further versatility since the internal flange is also flexible enough to accommodate deviations in the internal surface finish. The Wall Kit also has an optional backdraught shutter model for use with fans that do not have integral shutters. In addition, the Kit is also suitable to be used as a passive air grille in passive ventilation.
