Best Practice MEV Installation

All systems are designed in-house by our experienced technical team and installed by our own team of BPEC registered engineers.

Our Mechanical Extract Ventilation units are installed with smoothflow rigid ducting throughout, providing high levels of extraction from wetrooms including bathrooms, utility and kitchen areas.

This solid ducting is resistant to crush damage during the construction phase.

We only use precision engineered metal and plastic fittings, ducting and silencers mechanically fastened and sealed at every joint.



MEV Ducting Installation should take place as follows:

Concrete slab construction

  • When roof is complete (building watertight)
  • Before any other services are installed below the concrete slab
  • A void space of 100-150mm below the concrete slab will allow insulated duct to be used

Timber-frame construction
  •  When roof is complete (building watertight)
  • Before any other services are installed
  • Timber partition walls and floors are in place

Should you decide to install a MEV system from Beam on a DIY basis, we can provide design layout and commissioning.
It is crucial that best practice is adhered to at all times to ensure system efficiency.
