    Bathroom Extractor Next to Shower Head

    Doing an Eicr and the 230v timed class 1 bathroom extractor is less than 200mm next to the shower head. I see this as a C2 and would insist on it being changed to at least a 12v fan or even better a new location. Welcome any thoughts

    Anyone tried the Atoko Fan Select (ATQ6-03) - extractor fan timer - switch fan off during run-on?

    Hi. Has anyone tried the Atoko Fan Select (ATQ6-03)? Its supposed to be an extractor fan timer so you can get delayed start and run-on using a standard fan. They say you can also override the delay and run-on by switching the light - does that really work?

    I’m currently upgrading my bathroom suite and was wanting to remove the old style pull chords style switches for the fan and light for a switch. They will be mounted well outside the zone 2 area in the bathroom so do I need to take any ip rating into account as well. Many thanks

    VERY quiet ceiling mounted (min IP X4) bathroom fan recommendations?

    My very well off customer wants the most quiet ceiling mounted extractor fan there is. They have stipulated that cost is not a barrier and they just want something quiet. I have used one extremely quiet fan in the past, but it simply didn't do it's job, so that's pointless. This fan still needs...
