North West Aluminium (NWA) & Glidevale continue strong partnership in Ireland

NWA, one of Irelands top distributors of Roofing & Ventilation products & Glidevale have been working closely over the years promoting Glidevale’s range of products. 

Two unique product ranges in particular they are actively promoting at present are the Protect range of Roofing Membranes and Glidevale’s G-Range of Slate & Tile Ventilators.

Glidevale's market leading 'low emissivity' reflective technology membranes forms the core of a wider range of construction membranes which include air-tightness solutions, floor protection, timber frame and cladding membranes and a complimentary range of bespoke adhesive tapes.  Many of the membranes now include their innovative lap and seal technology which actively reduce installation time and errors on site.

All Protect Membranes are designed and developed specifically for the UK and Irish market requirements under BS EN ISO 9001 quality standards and are CE marked to relevant standards.

Glidevale’s G-Range of Slate &Tile Ventilators is unique in that they are designed & manufactured to suit each Slate/Tile brand.


Profile Matched Tile Ventilators

Posted: Mon, 06 July 2015, 13:56

Insulation installer/contractors are increasingly switchig over to profile matched tile ventilators as apposed to the universal tile vent version. The main reason for this is the huge labour saving they can achieve during installation. Installation of universal tile vents requires removing up to 4/5 tiles compared to the profile match vents which only require the removal of one. This is ideal when doing multiple buildings or housing estates.

Profile match tile vents also have the advantage of looking more aesthietically pleasing to the eye as they blend more naturally with the existing roof tiles. 
Our dedicated team of technical staff can visit any site in Ireland to survey the tile make/brand required.

Difference between Free Area & Equivalent Area

Posted: Mon, 30 March 2015, 16:41

A common question we are frequently asked is: 

Whats the difference between Free Area & Equivalent Area?

 

The following definitions are from the Technical Guidline Document issued by the Irish Building Regulations 2009.

 Free Area

Equivalent Area

  • The area of a single sharp edged hole that passes the same air volume flow rate at the same applied pressure difference as the vent being tested.

 The Equivalent Area of a ventilator is always less than the Free Area and is a better measure of the airflow performance of a ventilator. 

 

If you are still unsure as to what you requirements are regarding airflow measurements, then please don't be afraid to contact our technical team anytime...
