Greenwood’s Omnique Window Kit has become the first kitchen and bathroom extractor fan to achieve Secured by Design accreditation.
Secured by Design is the official UK police flagship initiative to ‘design out crime’ by encouraging innovative physical security products.
The Omnique Window Fan has been developed in conjunction with local authorities, social landlords and personnel responsible for secure house designs to deter potential break-ins. The fan was given the accreditation after passing independent testing as a critical component within PAS24:2012 by the Loss Prevention Certification Board.
The fan achieves its high level of security through dual-layered, vandal-proof construction, with two durable PC-ABS thermoplastic plates fitted on either side of a glass window. The fixing plates will remain intact if the cowl is removed, with no edges for the intruder to level the external plate from the glass or fan inside.
Designed with privacy in mind, the Omnique Window Fan’s grills are located on its side, ensuring that potential intruders cannot see through it when installed in windows.
The Omnique Window Fan is suitable across all housing stock types and installation applications.
Its multifunctional design includes adjustable airflow settings (continuous and intermittent); low energy EC motor technology to ensure low running costs and SMART humidity and timing controls which eliminate draughts, reduce energy wastage and eliminate heat loss.
The fan’s shutters also reduce back-draughts and heat loss when the fan is switched off.
