Each and every workplace is required to provide an adequate supply of fresh air for guests, staff and visitors. This means that effective ventilation systems must be present in such premises; without such a system, it is impossible to achieve a higher standard of air.
Airway Group Ltd offer a wide variety of Ventilation Solutions from Small Heat Recovery Units to large scale Air Handling Plant, Providing tempered fresh air and extracting stale air in homes or commercial outlets such as offices, hotels, retail and manufacturing.
Adequate Ventilation is a key component of Climate Control in buildings, offices and shops and is part of legal requirements. On a very basic scale, each building occupant should have 10 litres per second of fresh air in line with legislation. If this is not Achievable by natural means (passive air through windows) then mechanical Ventilation is required.
Airway Group can also cater for more specific Ventilation requirements where the buildings use dictates that a more specialist Level of Ventilation is required such as Clean Rooms, laboratories, lecture theatres etc..
Our professional expertise is focused on energy efficiency and customer wellbeing alongside our commitment to design and build a Ventilation Solution to your individual requirements especially in the current climate where fresh air provision is more important than ever before.

Heat Recovery Ventilation
A heat Recovery Ventilation system (HRV) also known as mechanical ventilation heat recovery (MVHR) is an energy recovery ventilation system that uses an air-to-air heat exchanger that recovers heat that is normally wasted while at the same time supplying fresh air – improving indoor air quality.
Heat recovery ventilation systems are commonly used for residential buildings but is also suitable for most commercial premises, providing Air Exchange and minimising heat loss.
There are various types of specialist Extraction systems such as Dust, Fume, moisture, Odour and Gas. As well as smoke and heat for Commercial manufacturing and food preparation. Extraction fans can be installed externally or internally dependent on requirement and application.
More simplistic Extract Fans are commonly used in homes – Extractor fans help to reduce humidity remove moisture from a space; this is particularly useful in rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms, where mould can grow as a result of the steam and humid conditions. They are also used commonly in the kitchen for extracting smoke and cooking odours.
Supply Air Systems
Supply ventilation works by pressurizing the building by using a fan to force outside air into the internal space allowing air to leak out of the building through holes in the shell, ducts and vents. A typical system has a fan and duct system that introduces the fresh air into rooms. By pressurizing the building supply air systems discourages the entry of pollutants from outside. It also allows air introduced into the dwelling to be filtered to remove pollen and dust or to be dehumidified.
Air Handling Units
AHU’s most commonly used for commercial and industrial buildings. Simply put Air Handling Units take air from outdoors re-condition and circulate it as fresh air as part of a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. AHU’s are designed to clean the air, heat it, or cool it, or even humidify it and then force it through the ductwork around to the designed areas within a building whilst also extracting stale air in one complete package.
Positive Input Ventilation
Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) is a low energy whole home ventilation solution. Fresh air is drawn through the loft by the PIV unit where it is filtered and passes via a ceiling diffuser, creating a positive pressure within the home forcing air pollutants out through the natural leakage gaps found in every home.
