Summary

The Airflow iCON 15 is perfect for bathrooms, shower rooms, toilets, en-suites, and, utility rooms.

It can either be recessed into the ceiling or the wall and is very stylish yet unobtrusive – even in the smallest of spaces. If you prefer to surface mount the unit, a narrow “skirt” is supplied.

This quiet yet powerful fan delivers an extraction rate of 19 l/s while consuming just 9.4Watts.

The iCON 15 also features a sleek iris shutter, designed to prevent back draughts, operate quietly and also to help reduce any noise ingress.

Extraction Rate

The Airflow iCON 15 has a max extraction flow rate of 69m3/hr, which is around 19 litres per second. Being the first extractor fan in the Airflow iCON series, this extraction rate, while decent, will be suitable for smaller applications e.g. en-suite, toilet, shower room etc. If you feel you need a more powerful extraction rate, you should consider the iCON 30 or iCON 60, but do keep in mind these will be a bit more expensive.

Power Consumption

This iCON 15 axial fan has a maximum consumption rate of just 9.4 Watts. It also has a great Specific Fan Power (SFP) Efficiency Rate of 0.49W/l/s.

Noise Level

The Airflow iCON 15 outputs a low sound level of 28.8dB at 3m, which is fairly quiet, especially for a moderately powerful extractor like this one. The standard for a quiet extractor fan is  30dB so this flow rate is pretty good.

Design

This extractor fan was created from quality ABS thermoplastics. It is refreshing to see a circular design where most are usually square! The iCON 15 also has cantilever fixing lugs meaning it can be installed on uneven surfaces if required.

One of the reasons this fan is so popular is due to the sleek iris shutter. The iris shutter is activated by the brown actuator, which heats up and pushes onto a white plastic clip, which results in the iris shutter opening. With that said, all of these components need to be aligned correctly during installation – especially when you fit the fan cover onto the fan. This is because if it is done incorrectly, it may seem like the fan itself is not working properly.

Furthermore, Airflow also has four great easy-wipe cover choices for the iCON 15 to match your bathrooms interior; Silver, Anthracite, Sandstone, and even Chrome!

Overrun Timer

This model does not have a run-on timer feature. If this is something you’re after, you will need to get the Airflow TM iCON Plug-in Timer Module as well. It is very quick and simple to install and would be much cheaper to replace than the whole fan itself.

Alternatively, you can buy the module and the iCON 15 together here.

Humidity Sensor

The iCON 15 does NOT have a humidity sensor or humidistat. If this is something you want, you will need to get the Airflow HTM iCON Plug-in Humidity & Timer Module and hook it up. This one is handy because it also has a timer control option as well.

Alternatively, you can buy them together here.

Other Control Modules

One great feature of the iCON series is the optionable control modules. While you have to purchase these separately, they allow great customisation for whatever application you are going for. Below is a table that details each module along with their respective product code.

Warranty

This extractor fan by Airflow comes with a 3-year warranty, which is pretty standard. Make sure you check out their help section if you have any issues after you purchase.
