Glidevale: Whole-house and building ventilation
The Glidevale iPSV® intelligent passive stack ventilation system provides an ultra-low maintenance, no-energy alternative to mechanical ventilation.
Driven primarily by the natural stack effect by which warm air rises, moisture-laden air is removed directly from 'wet' rooms (e.g. kitchens and bathrooms). Air inlets located in habitable rooms (living rooms, bedrooms etc) provide a flow of replacement air to the building.
The Glidevale Fresh vents range offers a variety of wall inlets. A range of Glidevale Tricklevents are also available. Please contact BDP for more information.
The only BBA-certified PSV system in the UK.
Complies with Building Regulations and Standards.
Provides 24-hour condensation control with continuous gentle extraction.
'Intelligent' extracts and inlets automatically modulate ventilation to suit demand.
Very low maintenance.
