Glidevale’s Versa-Tile G5 universal tile ventilator for retrofit roof space ventilation applications

Glidevale, the specialist building products and ventilation solutions provider, extends its tile ventilator range with the improved version of its Versa-Tile G5 tile ventilator and terminal solution.

The Versa-Tile G5’s universal design provides a single solution for the majority of single lap tiles*, resolving the challenges around tile profile matching. With a sleek, lower profile and guaranteed 20,000mm2 ventilation area, it can be used for all roof space ventilation requirements and is the ideal solution for refurbishment projects where retrofit roof space ventilation is required following the installation of increased roof or loft insulation. The product can also be adapted into a soil ventilation pipe or mechanical extraction terminal using Glidevale’s pipe adaptor and flexible pipe.

Manufactured from robust ABS and polypropylene material, the Versa-Tile G5 has a multi-coat, water based, environmentally friendly UV-resistant coating, to help weather more closely with the surrounding tiles over time. It has been proven to resist driving and deluge rain. The Versa-Tile G5 also incorporates Aluflash, a flexible adhesive-backed aluminium flashing at the leading front edge, which ensures the weathering and wind uplift security of the ventilator.

With the Versa-Tile range proven in use for over 15 years, the Versa-Tile G5 ventilator is suitable for roof pitches between 20° and 60°. It is available in the following UV-stable colours: brown, grey, black, terracotta, red and red streak. The product is supplied with comprehensive fixing instructions.

* Not recommended for use with plain tiles, clay single pantiles, interlocking slates, and certain small format tiles.
