A Trickle Vent is a very small opening in a window to allow small amounts of ventilation in spaces. Trickle vents are used extensively in the UK and Europe integrated into window frames to provide minimum ventilation requirements for naturally ventilated spaces. Trickle vents are often put into new upvc window frames, but can also be fitted into older frames which are already fitted in your home.
All our trickle vents are sold as pairs (internal & External Canopies)
The question is usually followed by a silence as the customer thinks about what they already have. Some customers have the vents already fitted to their windows but don't have the vent cover open. So it can be as easy as just opening the cover. If you do not have trickle vents fitted then the ones shown on this page will certainly help.
Imagine you put your hand in a plastic bag and seal it at the wrist. If you leave it for about 10 mins it will start sweating and the bag will get moisture resulting in condensation on the inside surface.Without opening the bag the moisture will never go. The same principle is causing Damp and Mould in our houses. As a general rule most of the country is insulating their homes to save fossel fuels & keep energy bills down. The only problem is with that is the rooms we sleep in every night (and breath & sweat water) are gradually gathering water just like the hand in the plastic bag mentioned earlier. To cure the problem we need to ventilate the room.
