Through the use of an individually configured cover, the SmartFan® becomes a DesignFan. We offer a range of 200 preconfigured design covers, as well as personally configured covers matching your décor.
With its aerodynamically shaped air outlet and integrated guide vane (a feature of modern turbine technology), the high-tech covers guarantee optimal airflow. The innovative solution with its integrated fan turbine technology boosts the fan’s performance, providing maximum airflow yet using minimum energy – as confirmed by the aerodynamic tests conducted by the Düsseldorf University of Applied Science’s Department of Fluid Mechanics. Moreover, the cover’s rounded design blends in with the décor.
The standard 3G dust filter can be easily inserted into the inside cover, and it’s just as easy to replace it.
A ‘pollen magnet’
The pollen filter prevents dust and pollen from entering a room. The optional pollen filter uses the principle of the electrostatic attraction of positively charged atoms. Like a duster, the filter attracts tiny particles in the air – like a magnet –, thereby greatly reducing the amount of pollen and dust in the inflowing air, without any great loss of pressure. And the regular cleaning of the filter is no great problem: all you have to do is to take the unit apart (just a couple of steps), the filter is vacuumed, and then replace everything.
Through simply plugging in the sensor stick, the SmartFan® can be converted to a SmartFan® S. The sensor automatically measures a room’s temperature and humidity level and selects the right mode for the right room climate.
Aerodynamic and exceptionally quiet
The reversible axial fan with its protective grille is at the heart of the ventilation system. The electromagnetic motor with its vibration damper cuts out practically all mechanical noise, while at the same time ensuring high performance (up to 46 m³/h when operated in pairs). The aerodynamically shaped rotor blades transport air in a highly efficient and silent manner. The fan’s main feature is its constant performance in both directions.
The honeycomb structure lets air flow through without any great hindrance, while being 10% more compact than a comparable square-shaped structure with the same surface area. This saves material, provides greater stability and allows air to flow through without hindrance.
The insect filter protects the SmartFan® components from external objects, mostly insects or coarse dirt. Regular cleaning ensures constant performance.
The ceramic heat exchanger
Inspired by nature
The highly efficient ceramic honeycomb heat exchanger provides the highest possible surface area for recovering heat from the outflowing air, achieving a heat recovery rate of up to 91%. At the same time, the elevated pores result in a comparatively low loss of pressure. The heat exchanger is made of a special ceramic material particularly resistant to chemical, thermal and mechanical influences.
The noise deflector consists of a patented multi-membrane plastic layer inside the cover which reduced airflow noise. The noise deflector consists of a patented multi-membrane plastic coating inside the cover which reduces airflow noise.
Condensate can form due to differences in temperature. Small grooves channel it to the outer edge of the cover, where it drips off via a lip, sufficiently far away from the facade. As a result, the facade is kept free of any damage or discolouring.
The lamellae lining the outside cover mean not only that the cover can be installed tightly without tools, but also that the SmartFan® is properly sealed.
The functionality of the outside cover has been designed right down to the very last detail. The noise deflector inside the cover minimises outside noise, as well as any airflow and motor noise. Due to the 3-degree gradient of the core-drilled hole, any condensate in the installation cylinder flows down to the outside cover, where a special lip lets it drip off. Even installation is simple, as it can be done completely without tools or having to drill holes. This also means that maintenance is simple.
The TOUCH control unit automatically recognises when a sensor stick has been inserted, showing the symbol “Auto” in the display panel. Moreover, the sensor’s LED starts blinking. When required, the automatic mode can be switched off via the control panel.
Sophisticated sensor technology
The sensor is located within the fan unit, directly measuring inflowing and outflowing air. Registering the air’s temperature and humidity level, it automatically selects the level of ventilation in line with the selected mode. All SmartFan® systems allow a sensor to be retrofitted.
With automatic humidity and temperature regulation
The new SmartFan® S is a further developed version of the existing SmartFan®. It combines all the features of the existing SmartFan with innovative sensor technology.
Its integrated sensors measure a room’s temperature and humidity level, enabling it to automatically select the right mode for achieving optimal ventilation. This in turn allows occupants to stop worrying about too high humidity levels or wasted heating energy. Thanks to the SmartFan S, they can always enjoy a comfortable climate in all rooms. The SmartFan® S is controlled via the modern TOUCH control unit, which also offers a wide range of modes in manual operation.
Anyone already using a SmartFan for his home ventilation and wanting to benefit from the advantages of the new sensor-driven controls can upgrade his existing system.

SmartFan® control unit
You’re an individual - and so is your ventilation!
Control all SmartFan® functions via a smartphone app. The intuitive control screen provides the same functionality as the TOUCH control unit.
LED control unit
The low-price control unit has just four buttons, making it very easy to select fan speed and operating modes.
TOUCH control unit
A touch of your finger on the TOUCH control unit is all you need to select the fan speed for selected zones. The six pre-defined operating modes can be selected for each zone
It’s up to you: a TOUCH or LED control unit
getAir’s control units are designed as modules, thereby increasing flexibility. The frame and control screen can be inserted into the base element without tools, allowing for instance the low-price LED control unit to be upgraded to a multifunctional TOUCH control unit.
Measure the thickness of the wall. Should any plastering still need to be done, allow for
plaster thickness when shortening the mounting tube. Shorten the mounting tube using a
sabre saw in such a way that the mounting tube ends are flush with both inside and outside
walls. Cut one or two slits (each ca. 10mm wide and 30mm long) into the mounting tube
on the indoor side (1). These are required for the incoming data cable (and possibly for a
cable to the next fan when serially installed). When using cables with a larger diameter or
when linking several SmartFan units together, the slit will need to be wider.
Coat the outside of the mounting tube with the sealant (2) and insert it into the core-drilled
hole (3). Pay attention to how long the sealant needs to dry. Proceed to the next step.
Use slits in the wall or cable ducts to lead the cables to the hole in the wall. Make sure
that the length of the cable in the mounting tube corresponds to the thickness of the wall
minus 150 mm. Wire the plug for connecting up the fan unit (see Electrical installation).
Should cables with a diameter > 6.1 mm be used, the top layer of insulation will need to be
removed to prevent problems with the further installation.
Once all work on the building‘s facade has been finished, the outside cover can be installed.
Remove the plastering cover and insert the outside cover into the mounting tube. Make sure
that the outside cover is straight and points downwards (the air vent at the bottom). Due to
the special mounting slats, the outside cover can be installed without any tools and sits tight
in the mounting tube.
Once all work on the inside wall has been completed and the outside cover installed, the
heat exchanger unit can be installed. The exchanger is inserted with the insect filter facing
the outside. Push the unit carefully into the mounting tube until it touches the rim of the
Once the heat exchanger has been installed, the fan unit is then inserted. Set the DIP
switches on the fan unit for the desired zone and initial fan direction (see Electrical
installation). Mark the settings of the switch on the corresponding sticker.
Make sure that the fan unit sits properly in the mounting tube and that the electrical control
baseis on top. Connect the power cable to the fan unit and insert the unit carefully into the
mounting tube until the spacers touch the heat exchanger.
Once all work inside the building has been completed, the inside cover can be installed.
Place the filter unit in the slots for the filter inside the cover. Insert the cover into the
mounting tube, making sure that the air vent points upwards and that the cover sits tightly.
