As condensation build up and the associated problems of damp, mould and mildew can continue to cause problems in both new and existing homes, leading manufacturer Glidevale Protect is encouraging specifiers to take stock of the benefits of working with a single-source supplier.
Glidevale Protect offers specifiers multiple roofing and building ventilation solutions to assist with condensation control and meet the requirements of a ‘build tight, ventilate right’ strategy. In addition, the UK producer offers one of the most comprehensive ranges of cavity trays available to the market for damp proofing protection against rain penetrating the external wall.
For roofing solutions, the manufacturer’s range includes an extensive selection of slate and tile vents as well as eaves, ridge and abutment ventilators to complement its portfolio of pitched roofing underlays. When used in conjunction with products from Glidevale Protect’s building ventilation range, which includes wall ventilation, trickle ventilators for windows and underfloor ventilation, an effective whole-house solution can be achieved.
Glidevale Protect also offers an intelligent passive stack ventilation system (iPSV) which provides a zero energy, low maintenance solution for removing moisture from habitable rooms prone to condensation build-up such as kitchens and bathrooms.
The manufacturer’s roofing and building ventilation solutions are ideally suited for use in residential and social housing and have been used on many schemes across the UK and Ireland to provide an effective condensation control strategy for both new-build developments and retro-fit projects, including the refurbishment of void and tenanted properties.
As a single supplier offering multiple solutions, Glidevale Protect’s product portfolio is fully supported by an experienced in-house technical team that is on hand to advise on creating fully compliant packages to create better buildings and healthy homes. This includes providing condensation risk-analysis and guidance on meeting the requirements of British Standards including BS 5250, the code of practice for the management of moisture in buildings
