Bathroom Extractor Fans
Bathroom fans come in two main types; Mains voltage and SELV or Safety Extra Low Voltage and it is vitally important that the correct fan is installed. Since electric and water make for a fatal combination strict regulations were introduced dividing the bathroom into 4 zones, 0 - 3. Mains voltage extractor fans may only be used in Zone 3 of the bathroom. In Zones 0, 1 and 2 SELV fans (12 volt) ONLY must be used, with the transformer being housed in Zone 3.
Inline Ceiling Fans
Q: What's an inline duct fan and when should I use it? A: an inline extractor fan is one which sits in the middle of a length of ducting up in the ceiling, rather than on the wall or ceiling. One end of the duct goes to a grille in the room from which the air is being extracted, the other to the outside grille. They should be used when extracting air from zone 0,1 or 2 in a bathroom, where a normal mains voltage fan may not be used. Read more about Inline Fans....
The regulations governing extractor fans in the kitchen are less strict than those for the bathroom and are concerned with the amount of air that is to be removed (air extraction rate), rather than user safety and voltage. The minimum air extraction rate is 15L/s. All extractor fans on our site far exceed this minimum requirement.

17th Edition Consumer Units
The term '17th Edition Consumer Unit' is now one of the most commonly used and misunderstood in the UK Electrical vernacular. Through lack of industry conformity the term has come to mean a consumer unit supplied with two RCDs. BUT: This does not necessarily mean the consumer unit abides by 17th Edition Regulations and certainly does not mean that other consumer units are not 17th Edition compliant.
