No. The HypAir Balance vents are not designed to be exposed to Ultra Violet Rays.

Can the HypAir Balance AAV be installed inside a closed wall and what are the maintenance requirements?

No, the HypAir Balance cannot be installed inside a closed wall. Remember, if the HypAir Balance has to be installed in a wall cavity, it is necessary to use the wall box with a louvered face plate.

Our non-return valves are designed for installation on horizontal pipe sections in sewage manholes, either inside or outside buildings. They provide anti-flooding protection and help to protect buildings against flooding due to rainwater travelling back down the sewage system. Debris gullies provide a connection between the gully system in the building and the waste-water system. Rainwater is effectively removed, protecting the building against rainwater accumulation and damage to the foundations.
