Elta Select

The fact is, choosing the right fan manufacturer for your requirements is an important decision. Which is why we thought a few facts about Elta Fans and its ‘SELECT’ range might help with that decision...

  • It’s not just one of the widest range of H&V products on the market today.
  • Nor is it our extensive distributor network - We have over 90 distributors in the UK and in 36 countries across 6 continents.
  • Nor is it the people – Elta Fans attracts some of the most talented and experienced professionals in the H&V industry, providing excellence in technical support and a level of customer service the envy of many.
  • Nor is it the depth of stock of standard products we carry, or the flexibility to respond quickly to more specialist product requirements. It is knowing that our customers come back to us time and time again.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

The Elta SELECT range represents one of the widest range of products available directly from stock, and with such a flexible approach developed around our customer's expectations, this means the value we place on customer service, quality and availability of product at competitive prices creates a difficult formula to beat.

ErP Legislation

Elta Fans have revolutionised both their new and existing product ranges to meet legislation directives, but also to incorporate the Best Available Technology, creating a reliable, efficient and powerful range of products.  Legislation has driven enormous change in the fan industry, starting in 2007, the European Council adopted ambitious energy and climate change objectives for 2020:        

  • To reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20%
  • To increase the share of renewable energy to 20%
  • To make a 20% improvement in energy efficiency                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Originally the EuP (Energy Using Products) Directive for products that use electricity.
ErP includes products which impact on energy consumption such as space heating or cooling hence broadening the scope.  The energy saving ErP effect is more than 4 times higher than the energy consuming EuP effect. It is divided into categories called numerical ‘Lots'.

  • Lot 11 - Fans 125W to 500kW Regulation 327/2011 (Applies to fans from 125W to 500kW input power.) 
  • Excludes emergency use only smoke extract.
  • Includes dual usage smoke extract.
  • Excludes fans above +100°C or below -40°C continuous ambient operation.
  • Excludes Atex fans.
  • Excludes fans for toxic, highly corrosive or abrasive applications
  • Specifies the minimum efficiency grade required to CE mark the product.
  • FMEG (Fan motor efficiency grade) is determined in accordance with ISO 12759 Fans – Efficiency classification for fans.
  • Variable Speed Drives (VSD) are allowed as a means to effectively increase the fan efficiency. Some fans will only be able to meet the minimum efficiency requirement if used with a VSD.
  • EC fans can be considered as having a Variable Speed Drive integrated within the fan.

The ZOO FAN has enjoyed shortlisting for the 'Air Movement Product' of the year in the H&V News Awards.

Demand Control Ventilation (DCV)

Demand control ventilation is recognised as being a method of ensuring a building is ventilated cost effectively while maximising indoor air quality. Sensors are used to continuously measure and monitor ambient conditions in the conditioned space and provide real time feed back to the zone controller which adjusts the fan speed modulating the ventilation rate to match the specific use and occupancy of the building.

With the development of our range of DCV fans , we have integrated energy efficient fan impeller units with the ability to use Demand Control Ventilation control methodology.
