For clean, fresh air in your bathroom, quality construction, and reliable performance.
April 3rd, 2012
Today’s bathroom has become our sanctuary – a place to relax and unwind. Creating that sought after tranquil and blissful ambience is the sum of many parts. It’s the result of the careful selection and investment in beautiful materials and sculptural, eco-friendly, well-designed, minimalist fittings and fixtures.
Case in point is the sleek and stylish IXL Tastic® Neo – an unobtrusive and sophisticated heat, lighting and powerful ventilation fixture. Dismissing the traditional thinking that extraction appliances are an ugly yet necessary evil, IXL Tastic® Neo’s sophisticated detailing adds a little bit of luxury to complement today’s contemporary bathrooms.
The superior features and quality of the proudly Australian made product by Australian owned company Sampford IXL epitomises the balance of form and function. As well as perfecting the aesthetics, importantly, the IXL Tastic® Neo creates the ideal clean, fresh air bathing environment that is light filled and well ventilated.
Ventilation and placement to create cross-breeze has become an increasing important factor given the trend towards airtight design within a home. And while airtight design has the positive of keeping drafts at bay, thereby reducing energy use and associated heating and cooling costs, according to the Council of Standards Australia, it doesn’t allow for the proper ventilation of harmful pollutants that can accumulate in a home.
“Adequate ventilation in a bathroom is imperative to assist in eliminating the threat of poor air quality,” cautions Libby Strong, National Brand Manager for Sampford IXL. “A high performing exhaust fan or 3 in 1 bathroom unit can expel humid air before it has the chance to condense.” Condensation and moisture created from steam in a bathroom situation tends to penetrate crevices, allowing mould and mildew to prosper. In some cases structural rot of a building can occur.
Standards Australia Committee ME-062 Ventilation and Air-conditioning heeds that over time, dwellings where stale air is contaminated daily by a collection of pollutants has proven to be harmful for residing humans and animals. The local design, engineering and manufacture of the IXL Tastic® Neo has ensured that the unique Australian three in one, light, heat and ventilation product is at the forefront of extraction unit market innovation.
While visually unimposing, and low on noise impact, IXL Tastic® Neo is one of the most powerful inline bathroom fans on the market, now offering an increased extraction capacity of 96 litres of air per second (or 346 m3 of air per hour).
An ideal suitor for 5-star rated homes, careful consideration to minimising energy consumption is evident in IXL Tastic® Neo’s use of energy saving compact fluorescent lights and use of back draught prevention flaps on the venting mechanism which helps to maintain a comfortable temperature.
A choice of two sizes is a further measure aimed at providing effective heating of bathrooms with different ceiling heights and in different climates. The IXL Tastic® Neo single unit suits ensuites and mid size bathrooms that have a ceiling height of up to 2.4m and the dual unit is designed for mid to large bathrooms with higher ceilings of up to 3.3m and or in cooler regions. Exhaust power is however the same in both the single and dual unit.
