The Passyfier Sleeved 230 Dehumidifier Vent represents a significant advancement in environmental control technology within domestic and commercial settings. Designed to create an effective opening on wall sections perpendicular to airflow, this vent facilitates a superior area for airflow well above the minimum requirements. The core of this innovation lies in its ability to regulate airflow automatically via a mineral wool slab, ensuring that the indoor environment remains free from excess moisture without introducing uncomfortable draughts.
Crucially, the Passyfier Vent operates on the principle that indoor moisture vapour pressure is inherently higher than that outside, promoting a natural diffusion process for moisture escape. Unlike mechanical ventilation systems that can rapidly remove water vapour, the Passyfier Vent's diffusion process is deliberate, making it ideal for sustained humidity control in living spaces. With a capability to extract a maximum of 2.3 litres of water per day, even at low vapour pressures, it stands as an essential tool for maintaining optimal indoor air quality.
The vent is designed for easy installation in both retrofit and new-build applications, preferably positioned at a high level for maximum efficiency. Its compatibility with the Passyfier Sleeved Vent Kit further enhances water vapour transmission, ensuring that indoor spaces remain comfortable and dry. For buildings with thicker walls, an Extension Sleeve is available, allowing for an additional 112mm of wall thickness.
Featuring the innovative ArrestAir-Pro Vane Technology within its airbrick, the vent is designed to fit standard apertures, complemented by an internal white plastic grille equipped with a built-in fly screen. This grille is specially designed for extra coverage, facilitating ease of retrofitting in a variety of settings.
Note: Passyfier Vents are used as an aid to help control humidity and are NOT to be used as a method of providing ventilation to any gas, oil, or solid fuel appliance.
Automatic Airflow Control: The mineral wool slab acts as an intelligent barrier, automatically adjusting airflow to reduce moisture effectively while preventing cold draughts.
Effective Moisture Management: Offers superior moisture vapour control by leveraging the natural diffusion process, capable of extracting up to 2.3 litres of water per day, ensuring indoor air remains dry and comfortable.
Minimal Energy Usage: Operates without the need for electrical power, offering an energy-efficient solution to humidity control, reducing reliance on mechanical ventilation systems and thereby lowering energy costs.
Noise-Free Operation: Designed to work silently, the Passyfier Vent ensures a quiet living or working environment, making it ideal for use in habitable rooms where noise minimisation is crucial.
Ease of Installation: Whether in new-build or retrofit applications, the vent can be installed at a high level easily, with an Extension Sleeve available for thicker walls, ensuring flexibility across a range of architectural designs.
Enhanced Indoor Air Quality: By controlling indoor humidity levels, it helps prevent the growth of mould and mildew, contributing to healthier indoor air and reducing the risk of respiratory issues.
Designed for Durability: With components like the ArrestAir-Pro Vane Technology airbrick and a robust internal grille with built-in fly screen, the vent is built to last, offering long-term performance with minimal maintenance.
Residential Living Spaces: Ideal for bedrooms, living rooms, and other habitable spaces up to 20m², ensuring these areas remain free from condensation and excessive moisture without the introduction of draughts.
Office Environments: In open-plan offices or smaller workspaces, the Passyfier Vent helps to maintain optimal humidity levels, enhancing comfort and productivity by providing a healthier indoor environment.
Historic Buildings: Particularly suitable for buildings where structural integrity and aesthetic considerations limit the use of modern mechanical ventilation systems, offering an unobtrusive, efficient moisture control solution.
Healthcare Facilities: In patient rooms and other areas where noise minimisation and air quality are paramount, the silent operation and effective humidity control support a conducive healing environment.
Educational Institutions: Classrooms and libraries benefit from the vent's ability to manage moisture levels, protecting educational materials and creating a comfortable learning atmosphere.

Installing the Passyfier Sleeved 230 Dehumidifier Vent is a straightforward process that, when done correctly, can significantly improve the air quality and humidity levels within your home.
This guide will provide detailed steps, leveraging key search terms to ensure visibility for those seeking DIY ventilation solutions. Follow these instructions carefully to ensure a successful installation.
Start by identifying the most effective spots for your Passyfier vents within habitable rooms such as bedrooms and living rooms. To maximise the vent's efficiency in capturing upward-moving moist air, install it no more than 12 inches below the ceiling. This strategic positioning is crucial for optimal performance in moisture control.
Once you have decided on the location for the Passyfier vent, it's essential to measure the height and width of the intended opening accurately. The Passyfier 230 Sleeved Vent is designed to fit into a standard 225mm x 150mm (9"x 6") airbrick aperture, making it suitable for rooms up to 20m². Ensure you select the correct size of the Passyfier vent for your space, adhering to the dimensions provided in the instructions.
The installation process involves creating an opening in the external wall of your property. Mark the exact position of the vent on the outside wall using a pencil or marker. Then, proceed to remove a brick to accommodate the vent, using a hammer and chisel. It's imperative to wear appropriate safety gear during this step to prevent injuries.
Once the opening is ready, it must be cleaned and prepared. Remove any debris, old paint, or dirt, ensuring a smooth and level surface for the vent's installation.
Carefully insert the Passyfier Vent tube into the prepared opening. Then, connect the internal plastic grille and the external cowl to the vent tube. Secure the entire assembly to the wall as per the manufacturer's instructions, ensuring that the vent is perfectly level and securely held within the opening.
To prevent water ingress, apply a bead of sealant around the perimeter of the vent opening. This step is crucial for maintaining a water-tight seal, ensuring the longevity and effectiveness of the vent.
With the installation complete, it's important to test the airflow through the vent. Hold a piece of thread or tissue paper near the vent to check for smooth air movement. If the vent seems obstructed or not functioning as expected, refer to the troubleshooting section of the manufacturer's instructions or consider seeking professional assistance.
By following these detailed steps, you'll be able to install the Passyfier Sleeved 230 Dehumidifier Vent efficiently, enhancing the comfort and air quality of your indoor environment. This DIY project is not only a cost-effective way to manage indoor humidity but also an investment in the health and wellbeing of your home's occupants.
