Innovative Domus Radial Duct System recognised as best product

Domus Radial

Polypipe has been recognised at the Housebuilder Product Awards for three consecutive years.

Domus Radial won the award for its innovative design that delivers increased air flow whilst offering an easy installation process and quiet whole house system.

The product is specifically designed for use with whole house centralised ventilation appliances, including Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) and Mechanical Extract Ventilation (MEV) systems. 

It has been designed to allow each room vent to be fixed directly to an inlet/outlet plenum with optional twin duct connections. The plenum is served by a single or tandem duct run which connects to a manifold, acting as an air distribution hub. The manifold is then linked to either a MVHR or MEV unit.

An optional integral flow control device enables the plenum to be connected directly to a grille, removing the need for a room-mounted adjustable air valve. 

The design also allows for single fix commissioning to be carried out in advance of construction of the finished ceiling; meaning that the required air flow rates will be achieved whilst the duct system is still accessible. In addition, the flow control device cannot be easily tampered with after commissioning, which could negatively impact system performance. 

Domus Radial’s 125mm deep slim-line manifold is ideal for installation between joists or in tighter spaces. The smaller manifold size removes the need to place it adjacent to the centralised MVHR or MEV appliance.

Awards hat-trick

Polypipe Ventilation has been recognised at the Housebuilder Product Awards every year since 2013, winning the Best Services Product award in 2013 with its Silavent Green Line HRX Mechanical Ventilation with MVHR range and achieving Highly commended status in 2014 with the Domus Thermal duct insulation solution.

Neil Tilsley, Managing Director of Polypipe Ventilation, commented: “We are thrilled to have been recognised at these prestigious awards for the third year in a row, and to achieve first place in the Best Services Product category for the second time. 

These achievements are testament to the company’s dedication to developing truly innovative, specifiable solutions which not only deliver high performance and energy efficiency, but also really push the boundaries of design to enable simpler design as well as quicker, straightforward and hassle-free installation to benefit both housebuilders and homeowners.“
