Manrose is a manufacturer of ventilation fans and equipment.Manrose is Britain’s fastest growing manufacturer of domestic ventilation fans and equipment with over 600 items in the product range, Manrose continues to lead the way in practical, innovative and cost-effective ventilation solutions.
Supporting this expansion is the company’s new, purpose-built 4000m² factory and warehouse in Reading, accompanied by a £500,000 investment in injection moulding plant. Sixteen state-of-the-art machines have enabled the in-house production of a new family of fans which has recently been completed with the introduction of the 12″ model.
Underlying the company’s phenomenal growth is a philosophy that puts the customer in the driving seat and provides a fast, flexible response to the ever changing needs of specifiers and contractors – as well as those of their customers. Since the launch of the company’s first product, a 4″ bathroom fan, the Manrose research and development team has continued to listen to what customers say and to develop new and innovative products to address those requirements.
A case in point is the company’s response to the increased demand for energy efficiency from householders and Local Authority specifiers. Manrose was one of the first fan manufacturers to introduce humidistat controls to bathroom and utility room fans, enabling the fan to switch off in direct response to Relative Humidity levels, rather than depending on a pre-set time. In this way, a direct link is provided between the actual ventilation requirement of the space and the ventilation supplied by the fan – thus optimising the use of energy.
Similarly Manrose has been at the forefront of passive infra-red (PIR) control for fans in situations where the fan would normally be manually operated with the risk that it might accidentally be left on. With a PIR sensor, the fan switches on when the room is occupied and switches off again when it is vacated – again eliminating energy wastage.
In combining its design and manufacturing expertise with a profound understanding of the application of those products, Manrose has established itself as a major force in ventilation, offering an attractive product range for customers while providing the means to offer end users exactly what they want.
