Just imagine that you are sat in the car with dennis doing a 3 point turn.
How was the airflow QT100T that you bought?

Parents have a couple of these. They do open slowly, but technically, there's a choice between using a magnetic solenoid which opens with a load bang (not great in the middle of the night), or a thermal solenoid which is silent but takes a minute or so.
The two my parents have open very smoothly, but they're only about 18 months old. Maybe when they're clogged with dust, they won't work so well. OTOH, they're on the end of such a long length of ducting, that there's probably no airflow anyway - they were mainly to satisfy the BCO, where being fitted is what counts, not that they actually do anything.

I fitted a fan to please the BCO not long ago. I might as well have put two 10mm holes through the external wall for all the good that it did as the ducting was that long and the owner did not want to pay for a decent inline fan.
I have just seen the Vent Axia silent range at the wholesalers. It looks impressive and as a working shelf display I can say that it sounded very quiet.

I've not looked to see if Greenwood extractors are still around but mine started being unreliable 2 weekends ago. It long since got disconnected from the light and used by a pull cord only as having a bath with a whirring fan is not conducive to relaxing bath enjoyment. The fault was not the Greenwood which with a simple repair is functioning again fine, but it took a morning to sort it out.
I hold up my hand at this point and admit that I had wired it in without any isolation, so when it started cutting out I had no idea what wiring laziness I had employed to power it. This was further compounded by the bathroom ceiling being lowered 22 years ago and the wires running therefore in a now inaccessible slot.
It was in the end sorted out, an FCU installed and calm returned - the Sunday morning calm being disturbed of course by my troublesome language on the matter.
And the fault - the screw on the line connector in the extractor had come a little slack and erratically breaking contact. Here endeth the story - I just do wonder how many other home wiremen are saying 'there but for the grace ... etc'!!
