Over 30 years of Glidevale profile and colour matching for tile and slate ventilators

At Glidevale we take pride in our vast tile and slate ventilator collection. With over 450 choices of tile or slate profile, we are one of the market leaders in tile vent manufacture in the UK.

Over 30 years, Glidevale has collated a comprehensive range to include hundreds of dedicated profiled tile ventilators matching almost any tile available in the market. In addition to tiles currently available on the market and newly introduced tiles, we can create vents for tiles which are no longer made by tile manufacturers, making Glidevale tile vents suitable for new build and retrofit schemes. Alongside its profile matching service, Glidevale can colour match to the exact blend of colours required.

When profile matched and colour blended with neighbouring slates, tiles and ridges, the ventilators are almost indiscernible once installed.

In addition to profile matched tile and slate ventilators, Glidevale also offers a range of universal ventilators which fit a large number of tile profiles. Where tile matching is unnecessary and a single solution is required for a number of roofs, the compact universal range can be utilised. This includes the Glidevale Versa-Tile G5, offering a guaranteed ventilation area of 20,000mm² and purpose made to match virtually all interlocking single lap tiles. Also the Universal® Flat Interlocking In-Line Tile, which has a guaranteed ventilation area of 10,000mm² and can be used with a range of tile profiles including Marley Modern, Redland Mini Stonewold, Sandtoft Calderdale and Russell Grampian, amongst many others.

Tile vents are offered in six UV-stable colours and can be easily installed as part of the normal tiling process. They can be adapted into a soil ventilation pipe or mechanical extraction terminal by means of a Glidevale pipe adaptor and flexible pipe.


Whether covering a high volume application housing scheme with the fewest number of references or matching the exact profile and colour for a heritage project, Glidevale can provide the solution for your development.

The compact universal tile and slate vents range is typically available within three to five working days, depending on the volume of the order. Profile and colour matched tile and slate ventilators are made to order and can be on site within eight working days from manufacture.
