Further Options

  • Extracted air is drawn through an activated carbon filter which removes unwanted fumes and odours before returning the air into the room.

  • Extracted air is drawn through a dedicated duct system via an externally mounted fan unit. This system does not require filters and is therefore more cost effective than the recirculating option.
