    Vent Axia Lot 20 Electric Panel Heaters

    Explaining LOT 20

    Lot 20 is a new Ecodesign legislation from the EU which affects electric space heating, Introduced in January 2018, all local space heaters which use electricity, gaseous or liquid fuels, will have to comply with a minimum efficiency standard under Lot 20 of the Energy Efficiency Directive. This includes electric radiators/panel heaters, electric and gas fires and electric underfloor heating. The aim is to ensure that inefficient technologies are replaced with energy efficient products that aim to reduce the amount of energy used in our homes, thus helping to achieve our overall carbon reduction targets. This will be achieved by regulating the operation of local space heaters through the use of intelligent controls.
    Manufacturers will be required to incorporate functions within their products, which may include temperature controls with day/week timers, presence detection, adaptive start control and distance control functions and open window detection, making products more sophisticated. This new legislation will mean that more energy efficient products will enter the market, operated via intelligent controls. The knock-on effect of this will mean that manufacturers of controllers and/or the components that make up these control systems will also need to increase the efficiency of their products.

    Comfort Heating
    Lot 20 Panel Heaters are direct acting heaters, used to heat up a space quickly with 100% efficiency. Vent-Axia’s Panel Heaters offer a range of heat outputs from 1kW to 2kW and every model comes with electronic thermostatic control and 12 pre-set heating programmes. Vent-Axia Panel Heaters look as good as they perform. Stylish and slim, they occupy minimal wall space and are finished in an attractive gloss white finish. Vent-Axia Panel Heaters are wall mounted and connected to the permanent electrical supply via a fused connection switched outlet. Vent-Axia Panel Heaters are supplied with mounting brackets, 1.5m of flex and come fitted with an easy to use LCD display screen. You can view the rest of our electric heating on our website here.

    Minimalist Modern Ceiling Lights

    Minimalist Modern Ceiling Lights

    Minimalism is synonymous with modern interiors. In contrast to the rural look, there are no distinctive decorations to brighten up a space. Clean lines and simple forms characterise this interior style, which is what makes minimalism a very pure design philosophy. When Lighting your space clean lines can be kept by using recessed downlights and LED tape, this keeps any large ceiling mounted light fitting from looking out of place. Downlights are a great way to create zones, navigate around a space or highlight art and can provide in-fill light or task lighting for example over a kitchen island. Downlights themselves come in a variety of styles including trimless and baffled. Rooms to benifit from these downlights are Modern, open, kitchens or living rooms or even home cinemas where the lighting can dimmed when using the room for watching a film. We offer a lighting design service and can help you plan from a room to a complete new build.

    Astro Trimless 230V recessed lamp at Nostraforma


    Integral Evofire is a range of slim(1mm) bezelled fire rated downlight which is up to 10 times thinner than typical IP65 rated downlights and fits almost flush with your ceiling, so the downlight looks discreet and pleasing in any setting. The canless design does not conceal your lamp in a large metal canister, which can trap some of the heat it generates, lowering lamp lifetime and performance therefore extending the lifetime of your lamps. The Baffled version holds the lamp higher in the ceiling, resulting in a designer look with lower glare. Trimless, or plaster-in downlights take away the bezel completely, fitted prior to plastering the ceiling these take a little more time to install and we have been providing the Astro trimless downlight for many years on our designs.

    We now have a new directional slim line downlight that can also be plastered in. This All LED iCAN75 tiltable downlight comes in 3 finishes, being tiltable allows for more areas of installation including in vaulted ceilings to keep the light directing straight down.
