Broan NuTone, SurfaceShield


SurfaceShield is a technology that offers protection against bacteria, mold, and fungi growth in the bathroom or other humidity-prone environments. Offering a sound rating of 1.0 sone, the SurfaceShield 110 CFM Exhaust Bath Fan generates powerful air circulation with minimal background noise. There are two lighting modes in the SurfaceShield LED light: an everyday white light perfect for task lighting and the SurfaceShield continuous antimicrobial mode. The Roomside Series fans offer an EzDuct connector for hassle-free room-side installation with no attic access needed.

What the judges say: “I think prioritizing more ways to help us keep our homes from harmful bacteria are critical features to offer.”
