Airflow Developments’ stylish iCON 15S extractor fans are being incorporated into the ultimate expedition vehicles, manufactured by Bliss Mobil in the Netherlands. The fan’s innovative iRIS shutter was a key differentiator, which enabled Airflow to meet a unique specification.
Combining travelling and technology, Bliss Mobil has developed a smart and unique solution to combat the unexpected while travelling. The company’s robust expedition vehicle provides unrestricted access to even the most remote locations, enabling adventurous travellers to explore anywhere on the globe at an affordable price, and without compromising on quality and functionality.
Airflow’s iCON 15S extractor fans have been integrated into the onboard automation system, enabling the user to activate the fans with an external control such as a smartphone or tablet computer. The fans are also pre-set to activate when external conditions reach certain temperatures, to ensure the best air quality of the passengers onboard, but also to protect vulnerable parts of the vehicle, such as lithium ion batteries and complex computer mainframes.
Marleen Hoex of Bliss Mobil said: “We chose Airflow’s iCON 15S for the unique feature of the iRIS shutter, helping to reduce heat loss, preventing noise ingress, and enabling complete ventilation of the vehicle in all environments, even in dusty desert conditions. After supplying fans for the first two prototypes, the iCON now comes as standard in our high end expedition vehicles, with up to seven being fitted into one model.”
John Kelly at Airflow said: “We are proud to call ourselves the ‘ultimate’ choice of fan for Bliss Mobil’s unique expedition vehicles, providing reliable ventilation whilst blending into the background. The iCON 15S is unobtrusive and stylish, and the ideal fan for the job, with its exclusive iRIS shutter ensuring the ventilation of the vehicle is maintained and runs at full capacity in some of the world’s most extreme environments.”
