Lead Roof Vents
Lead Roof Vents For Pitched & Mansard Roofs
These Lead roof vents are suitable for use on pitched and mansard roofs. These vents are compatible with slates or tiles. Lead roof vents can be used for kitchen or bathroom extract, as well as roof space ventilation.
The lead vent is hand-made in the UK from Code 4 lead and fully recyclable, with a long life expectancy. This is a truly sustainable ventilation solution with a BRE Green Guide rating of A or A+. This vent delivers free air flow of 12,000mm2 through a standard, lead downpipe in 110mm. The vent with pipe will accommodate a 110mm pipe (either a flexi pipe or rigid pipe). The vent is also available on its own with no outlet connection.
Installation is straightforward, following traditional roofing techniques. After removing some of the tiles at a suitable spot, the vent is placed in the chosen position. The centre-lines of the downpipe are marked on the remaining tiles. Obstructing battens and tiles must be cut to accommodate the downpipe. An additional 10mm of free space around the downpipe is recommended to allow for expansion of the lead. Finally, the vent is nailed to a batten, and the surrounding tiles are angle-cut to finish.
These handsome, lead roof vents are designed to complement the aesthetics of any high specification, well-constructed roof. As well as being popular with professional roofers, they are also highly regarded by conservation officers for use on listed buildings. Select these lead roof vents as your sustainable, maintenance-free ventilation option on an authentic, heritage roof refurbishment project.
