Questions & Answers

The design of the Link Vent MK II benefits from aerodynamic features which direct the air flow efficiently through the vents pathway - the canopy extends only 25mm. It has been developed to meet the minimum requirements of the building regulation Part F1:2021.

Options are available to ensure compliance for both 10mm and 13mm slot height requirements. The design of these vents allow enhanced air flow for their size, meaning in many scenarios, fewer vents are required to rout and fit making installation faster and keeping production costs down.

The vent has one of the highest decibel ratings on the market for a non-acoustic vent. Improved Db reduces noise to new levels of performance, especially in the closed position. The aesthetically pleasing and patented design helps to reduce the visibility of the trickle vent on a window.

It is available in a large range of solid colour or wood grain finishes - internal and external parts can be bought separately for flexible colour choice. The vents are through moulded meaning the colour won’t scratch or peel off. Canopies can be vacuum foiled to match embossed Linear wrapped profiles and the vents can be sprayed to
any RAL colour.

The vent has no end caps and is supplied with the fixing clips fitted - you can push fit the vent into place within seconds. The clips automatically centre the vent in the rout, ensuring it is fitted level. If you prefer to screw fix your trickle vents, just pop out the fitted screw caps before fitting and fix as normal.

What are the changes to Part F 2021 for trickle vents?

Approved Document F: 2021

Why are there new Part F regulations?

The Future Homes Standard 2021

  • Government led project: 31% reduction in CO2 by June 2022
  • Includes updates to Part L and Part F regulations
  • Currently applies to installations in England
  • For windows and doors, by 15th June 2022
    • U values reduce from 1.6 to 1.4
    • Expected goal of 0.8 by 2025

What products can I use to comply?

As windows now make homes more airtight, additional ventilation is required to circulate air in living spaces. Options include mechanical ventilation, extractor fans and trickle vents.

Trickle vents are by far the cheapest and most practical solution to achieve the regulations for both new build and replacement markets.

  • New trickle vents are being launched to offer increased equivalent area air flow.
  • Adjustments to slot heights may be needed to achieve the EQA requirements.
  • Carl F Groupco stock compliant vents from Glazpart, Greenwood, RW Simon and Yale.

What are the new regulations?

for dwellings regarding ventilation....

New build and extensions:

  • Habitable Rooms + Kitchens
    • 8000 EQA
    • 10,000 EQA (single story)
  • Non Habitable Rooms + Bathrooms
    • 4000 EQA
    • 5000 EQA (single story)
  • WC's + Utility Rooms
    • No defined EQA but ventilation is recommended to be provided.
  • Open Plan Living Room + Kitchen
    • If the dwelling has a kitchen and living room which are not separate rooms, at least three ventilators of the same area as for other habitable rooms should be provided in the open-plan space.

Replacement Market:

  • Replacing less than 30% of glazing
    • Replacement windows must provide at least the equivalent EQA as the old window.
