COMPANY NEWS | SHOWCASE Ventilation manufacturer EnviroVent has responded to market demand for a ‘smart’ way to control ventilation requirements by making its app available for energisava 250 and 380 MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery) systems. The myenvirovent app, which is available for iOS and Android via the App store, will offer greater control and flexibility for a home’s ventilation by allowing the end user to access certain settings on the unit from anywhere in the dwelling. Rory Percival, research and development and technical manager at EnviroVent, said: “We released the first myenvirovent app with the energiSava 200 MVHR unit and had a great response, with customers requesting its innovative technology and functionality across other units within our MVHR range. The app has huge benefits for the homeowner and is a great added value incentive for housebuilders to demonstrate to customers. Installers have also welcomed the way the app speeds up the installation process and makes setup and commissioning of a unit far simpler and more efficient.” www.envirovent.com Window of opportunity with sales manager appointment OCTOBER 2017 | BUILDING PRODUCTS 81 Stream of new promotions announced Rain-to-drain water management manufacturer Alumasc Water Management Solutions has promoted various people in the company to new roles.
