Glidevale is a breath of fresh air

Glidevale, the specialist building products and ventilation solutions provider, offers a comprehensive range of slate and tile ventilators, with over 450 choices of tile or slate profiles available.

Glidevale’s range has been collated for over 30 years and includes hundreds of dedicated profiled tile ventilators matching almost any tile available on the market. In addition to current and newly introduced tiles, the company can create vents for tiles which are no longer made by tile manufacturers, making Glidevale tile vents suitable for newbuild and retrofit schemes.

Alongside its profile matching service, Glidevale can colour-match to the exact blend of colours required. When profile matched, and colour blended with neighbouring slates, tiles and ridges, the ventilators are almost indiscernible once installed.

Glidevale also offers a range of universal ventilators which fit a large number of tile profiles. Where tile matching is unnecessary, and a single solution is required for a number of roofs, the compact universal range can be utilised. This includes the Glidevale Versa-Tile G5, providing a guaranteed ventilation area of 20,000mm² and purpose-made to match virtually all interlocking single lap tiles. Also suitable is the Universal Flat Interlocking In-Line Tile, which is said to have a guaranteed ventilation area of 10,000mm² and can be used with a range of tile profiles including Marley Modern, Redland Mini Stonewold, Sandtoft Calderdale and Russell Grampian, amongst many others. Tile vents are offered in seven UV-stable colours and can be easily installed as part of the normal tiling process.

The compact universal tile and slate vents range is typically available within three to five working days, depending on the volume of the order. Profile and colour-matched tile and slate ventilators are made to order and can be on site within eight working days from manufacture.
