New Product Focus: Manthorpe Curv Roof Vent Tile

Manthorpe GTV CURV Cowled Universal Concrete Interlocking Roof Tile Vent | About Roofing

A new addition to our product range is the Manthorpe GTV CURV Cowled Universal Concrete Interlocking Roof Tile Vent

Available in four colours (red, grey, brown & terracotta) to suit most applications, the Manthorpe Cowled Universal Roof Vent is designed to provide a quick and simple solution to the problems of roofspace ventilation and mechanical extraction or soil stack termination through a wide variety of concrete interlocking roof tiles.

It is especially useful on jobs where the installer may not know what the roof covering is: Designed to suit many large and small format concrete interlocking tiles, both flat and profiled in design, from 15x9s to large flat profiles such as the Marley Modern to deep bold roll styles of roof tile.

The Manthorpe Cowled Universal Roof Vent Tile is fitted with a versatile flashing skirt which can be dressed to match the relevent profile of the roof covering and comes with an adhesive mastic backing which securely seals the flashing down to the roof tile.

The hooded cowl protects the opening from the elements whilst providing an airflow path into the roofspace. An integral 4mm louvred grill within the cowl prevents the entry of debris and large nesting insects.

When using the vent for mechanical extraction, soil stack or vent pipe termination, the rear spigot is stepped to allow for 4" round, 5" round or a 6" oval connection.

The 4" connection can be joined to one of the Manthorpe range of GRPA Flexible Pipes to continue the ducting further into the roofspace.

We now have these innovative, versatile vent tiles in stock ready for immediate despatch.
