Regarding the statements claimed on our Soler & Palau Plate and Cased axial fan pages in our stocklist and in our catalogues both in hard copy and on the internet. It appears we havn’t explained ourselves properly and we’ve claimed that Soler and Palau have been manufacturing fans for Vent-Axia for 20 years!! The 20 years is an exaggeration especially when it comes to the ‘Roof-Units’ fans maybe it just feels like 20 years!! But the basic truth is as follows:-
As you know we have been a Vent-Axia stockist for many years and a Soler & Palau stockist for a lot longer!! In fact we’ve been a Soler & Palau stockist since before there was an exclusivity deal between Soler & Palau and Vent-Axia regarding the Plate and Cased axial fans! You see it all happened a long time ago so the dates are very vague!! Our kept records only go back to 1997 but our history with Soler & Palau goes back a lot longer and we are proud to be their local area stockist!!
At the time Vent-Axia were selling the Plate and cased axial fans manufactured by Soler & Palau; the P (plate fans i.e. P400-14HIAF) and the C (cased axial fans i.e. C400-14HIBF). Vent-Axia then changed thier structure so that the ‘P’ and ‘C’ range (with the plastic blue impellers) became thier ‘commercial’ range and the same fans but with a metal silver impeller and a slightly different code (SMP and SMC) became the new industrial range. Then in 2001 (ish) Vent-Axia bought out the company Roof-Units (they may have been related to them in some way prior?? We don’t know! Actually I don’t think they were!) Around this time the ‘Roof-Units’ fans stopped being a Ziehl design and became the S&P design but in the same RAL grey colour. These were then badged up as an E (for Euroseries) and CA for Cased Axial (Euroseries) axial fans But they were cheaper than the ‘SMP’ and ‘SMC’
So from the 1990s until now Soler and Palau had supplied their fans (HCB & TCB range) compact axial and plate axial fans to Vent-Axia, who in turn had asked them to be slightly different specifications with different pricing structures!! But essentially all the same fan, same dimensions, same performances, different colours!! This is how it works, using a 400mm diameter 1phase plate fan as an example:-
Soler & Palau ref: HCBB/4-400/H This is IP65 best spec and lowest of all the prices with a red impeller.
The V-A ‘Commercial ref: P400-14 HIAF Was the most expensive with the blue impeller IP65
The V-A ‘Industrial’ ref SMP400-14 Was a bit cheaper than above but with a silver impeller IP65
The V-A / R-U ‘Euroseries’ ref E400/4/1A Was cheaper than the above but it was IP54 with a grey metal impeller and case. But it was still very slightly more expensive than the Soler & Palau HCBB fan!!
Clear As Mud!!!!!
The Original And the Best
When our 2009 catalogue went to print all the above was true as we understood it!! So that’s what we put in our catalogue. We did get some of the IP ratings wrong as you can see above but all this has been blown out of the water now because Vent-Axia are now sourcing thier fans from Ziehl.
