Felt Lap Vent
Product Code G630
Product Description & Key Features
The Manthorpe Felt Lap Vent is a refurbishment product designed to increase the amount of ventilation into existing roof spaces.
Usually fitted retrospectively to properties with additional loft insulation recently installed, however the Felt Lap Vent will help to combat the problem of condensation build up in any roof space with a lapped felt/membrane construction.
The product has been designed as a remedial solution to help overcome the build-up of condensation in the roof space, however like all products that open the felt lap to provide ventilation it does not meet the code of practice BS 5534:2014+A2:2018 18.104.22.168. The specifier or user should be aware that the opening of felt laps on the roof may adversely affect the driving rain resistance of the slates, tiles or shingles, as well as increase the wind uplift forces acting on them.
- 3,000mm² airflow per G630
- Can be fitted at joist centres ranging from 400mm to 600mm
- Easy to fit, the tapered lead in helps to slot the product between the felt laps
- The 3 felt clips help secure the product in place even if the edge of the felt is degraded
