If several people are spending longer periods of time in an enclosed space, used air must be regularly expelled and sufficient air exchange must be ensured. Ventilation systems from D+H provide fresh, healthy air at all times of year. These systems use time-controlled, automated ventilation to reliably remove hazardous aerosols.

Germany closes standardisation gap for SHEV controllers
The German Institute for Standardisation (DIN) has played a lead role in the enhancement of an important part of a DIN standard relating to smoke and heat exhaust ventilation. The recently published draft version of DIN 18232-9 refers to the internationally relevant ISO 21927-9 standard. As a result, an EN standardisation gap that existed throughout Europe has finally been closed in Germany. In addition to the specifications for natural smoke and heat exhaust ventilators (NSHEV) and power supplies, the minimum requirements for control panels are now also clearly defined. D+H control panels for smoke and heat exhaust ventilation (SHEV) already fulfil these minimum guidelines and are certified by the Verband der Sachversicherer (VdS) (English: German Association of Insurers) in accordance with ISO 21927-9 guidelines.
