profi-air starline design grill: Easy installation meets elegant appearance

profi-air starline design grill: Easy installation meets elegant appearance

HRV technology meets premium design: The new profi-air starline design grills by FRÄNKISCHE are both stylish and easy to install. The expert in the field of installation technology “behind the wall” has developed the design grills in close cooperation with sieger design to set the right high-lights also "in front of the wall".

With its innovative profi-air ventilation system, FRÄNKISCHE brings variety and flexibility onto the heat recovery ventilation (HRV) market: The family-owned enterprise from Königsberg in Germany does not only offer classic round pipes but also flat tunnel pipe variants for installation. Thanks to the profi-air complete range with piping systems, ventilation units and the new design grills, both existing buildings and individually con-structed new ones can be furnished with high-performance, clean and highly efficient HRV systems. To achieve both perfect technol-ogy behind the wall and great design in front of it, FRÄNKISCHE has partnered with sieger design. The design agency from Sas-senberg in North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany) has created profi-air starline - high-quality, stylish and at the same time practical ventilation grills for profi-air.

Flexible alignment of design grills

3 simple steps to install the new design grills without the use of tools: The first step is to connect the ventilation grill with the mounting frame using two mag-nets. Thanks to the magnetic fixing, the design grill is reliably attached to the mounting frame, and its position can easily and precisely be adjusted manually. The connected unit can then be inserted into the profi-air air outlet without any tools; clamps provide a reliable and durable connection of the mounting frame. The last step is to align the ventilation grill horizontally. Potential minor flaws, e.g. if the profi-air ventilation shaft has been installed slightly askew, can be easily compensated for with the help of profi-air starline. “This practical solution makes the installer's work quick and easy. The easy adjustment makes our design grill a unique product on the market boasting significant advantages over competitive products", says Jürgen Rudolf, product manager for heat recovery ventilation of the FRÄNKISCHE Building Technology division. The new design grills are suitable for both wall and ceiling installation.

New material: ventilation grills made of glass

As part of its profi-air starline collection, FRÄNKISCHE offers 20 grill variants made of high-quality materials. In addition to ten rectangular shapes, there are nine square grills and a round one. They are made of stainless steel or powder-coated steel plate; ventilation grills made of glass constitute a brand-new market innovation. sieger design created a total of six appeal-ing starline motifs. The glass design grills are available as "White Pure". All metal designs are avail-able in a white finish as well as in another colour matching the respective motif. So there is always an adequate motif to match each and every interior style and to suit all tastes. But there is more to it - the flexible installation of the design grills makes design changes mere child’s play: Just remove the magnetically attached ventilation grill and replace it by a new one - place, align, done. To keep the piping system even cleaner, FRÄNKISCHE also offers extract air filters and a special grease filter for kitchens which can be secured in the mounting frame by means of adjustable flaps.

Awarded: "Best of Best"

Practical yet design-oriented starline ventilation grills made of glass have been awarded by the German Design Council in the "ICONIC AWARDS 2016: Interior Innovation" competition: The SHAPE design grill collec-tion has been awarded the "Best of Best" prize in the building fixtures category. The new competition that is based on the former Interior Innovation Award sees its aim in honouring innovative excellence with a focus on connecting the realms of architecture and furnishings. The German Design Council supports the industry in all design-related matters and is one of the world's leading centres of excellence for conveying holistic design.

profi-air design grills are a true eye-catcher for heat recovery ventilation sys-tems – matching any interior style and easy to install: Cutting-edge technology behind the wall meets high-quality design in front of the wall.
