Kenrick extends trickle vent range

Hardware manufacturer and supplier, Kenrick, has added the new EasyVent Plus range to its trickle vent options.  

Andy Meakin, sales and marketing manager at Kenrick, said: “The EasyVent Plus offers fabricators and installers a solution that not only ensures they meet the regulations but also provides features and capabilities that genuinely enhance the window.”

He continued: “EasyVent has long been a favourite of social sector window replacement programmes because it provides effective ventilation while reducing mould and condensation. Since the updates to Building Regulations in 2023 that effectively mandated the use of trickle vents, it has extended its presence in the domestic sector thanks to its unique features and elegant design.”

The EasyVent Plus has a compact and discreet design with a unique closure plate that optimises and controls airflow, cuts out noise and firmly shuts out the elements. The external hood features a flyscreen to prevent insects entering a building. It is available in a wide range of colours including on-trend tones Chartwell green and anthracite grey, with realistic woodgrain finishes and RAL colour matching available on request.

The EasyVent Plus meets the requirements of the current Building Regulations ADF 2010. It is available in a choice of three variants – 2,500EA (Equivalent Area), 4,000EA, and 5,000EA, each providing a different level of ventilation, depending on requirements.

The EasyVent Plus meets LABC building regulations, reducing administration requirements. It uses screw or clip fixings and is said to be a robust solution that is quick and easy to fit because there are no end caps to lose or break.
