Preventing heat build up

Ultraframe has launched its new slimline roof vent, which is thermally broken and engineered for long lasting performance.

Ultraframe’s design and development director Andrew Thomson said: “Many installers are reluctant to add roof vents into a conservatory, but as hotter weather continues in the UK, they are increasingly important and are one of the fastest ways of ventilating a conservatory during the warmest months of the year. Our new slimline vent fits perfectly with the new contemporary styles of conservatories that are becoming more and more prominent in the marketplace.”

Featuring a powder-coated aluminium sash as standard, along with the option of aluminium internal claddings on the Ultrasky roof and Ultrasky Lantern, the new vent boasts a PVC welded frame to eliminate any chance of leaks. Weather baffles and a built in internal drainage system also ensure maximum protection from the elements.

“Its old counterpart comprised many parts that provided more opportunity for the vent to fail in terms of leaks and so when designing the new one we’ve created a welded PVC frame to eliminate this issue,” Andrew said. “The new vent is also a dry product unlike the old one, which relied on silicone for assembly, and could look unsightly if not applied perfectly.”

The high quality powder coated paint finish on the new roof vent is available in white as standard with any other RAL colour available on request.
