Welcome to our Home Page!
SAV works closely with its technology partners and with consulting engineers, to ensure that the right product solution is delivered to each building services project.
We offer to participate with the initial project viability and design, to remain involved through the drawing up of equipment schedules / specifications and to be there at the installation and commissioning stages. We do not walk away after handover. It is important to us that every project performs as expected, and reflects well on those who specified SAV for whatever type of equipment, however small.
Our technology partners have been chosen for their consistently high quality of product and innovative skills. On this website, you will find a wealth of information about SAV and each of its technology partners. They are experts in several different areas of technology, all with the common denominator of providing low carbon solutions for the challenges of today.
Here is a brief introduction to our areas of expertise:
Heat recovery ventilation systems (HRVS)
SAV’s partnership with AirMaster AS provides access to the technology supporting state-of–the-art and energy-efficient heat recovery ventilation systems. AirMaster’s innovative solutions have been developed to comply with rigorous Northern European standards, which enables UK design consultants to stay ahead of the curve. It means that SAV are in a position to help specifiers and building operators put together good ventilation solutions which are low carbon, decentralised and demand-controlled.

Flatstation & Substation HIUs
SAV has a longstanding association with Danfoss AS and its Termix subsidiary in particular. This is the powerhouse behind the FlatStation Heat Interface Unit (HIU) technology, which is a fundamental part of district heating systems that are the norm in many parts of Northern Europe. SAV works closely with Termix to develop FlatStation features which are tailored specifically to meet UK Building Regulations. Whether for centralised plant rooms or for district heating, FlatStation HIU unit volumes can be large; this is where Danfoss reliability and manufacturing economies of scale are crucial.
Energy Metering Systems
Also through Danfoss, SAV have access to compact and well-engineered ultrasonic energy meters to help meet the requirements of Building Regulations Part L. Ancillary equipment can include data logging and the Watchman facility to generate reports on energy usage. This can produce the content for statutory Building Log Books.
Automatic Monitoring and Targeting
Inclusion of aM&T within a building produces a better energy rating under Building Regulations Part L. This means that building owners can expect to benefit from higher re-sale values.

HVAC Distribution Modules
Benefiting from the technology partnership with FAR Srl, bespoke modules can be provided to enable the rapid installation of FCU / AHU / Chilled Beam temperature control systems. Flushing provisions and self-balancing circuits pave the way for efficient commissioning. Advice on clustering and pipe sizing is part of the package.
Domestic Hot Water & Cold Water Manifolds
Selection from the large FAR product range means that compact, factory-made assemblies enable large numbers of connections to be completed and tested off-site. Bespoke drawings help optimize client requirements for DPCVs, isolators, filters, venting and metering. Enquiries for non-standard assemblies welcomed.
Manifolds, flexible pipe and actuators
A superb range of fittings carefully sourced through top manufacturing companies in Europe: FAR (manifolds), Haka (multilayer piping) and Mohlenhoff (room temperature controls).
