Trickle vents and the newly updated Building Regulations are front and centre of minds right across the fenestration industry. In particular, the new regulations on background ventilation.

For decades the industry has wrestled with the trickle vents, their pros and cons, their popularity with homeowners and their general use within fenestration.

There are, however, many questions surrounding the new Building Regulations, their interpretations and how the use of trickle vents in replacement windows is going to change our sector.

Installer ventilation survey

In order to know in more detail what we know or don’t know, and what current sentiment is towards the product and the new regulations, DGB has commissioned a survey that will be distributed throughout the sector to gauge opinion on some important questions.

If you are an installer within the fenestration sector please take a moment to participate in this important market survey:

With discussions still ongoing about the implementation of the new Building Regulations and how installers can comply, the results of this survey are important and will form part of the wider discussion about how our sector goes about debating the role ventilation plays with new windows and door installations.

The more installers that take part the more accurate and influential the results will be. Results of this survey will be published soon.
