All about excellence and compliance – Tradelink Direct becomes a Glazpartner

Glazpart is delighted to announce that Tradelink Direct is the latest company to join the Glazpartners initiative – the marketing partnership set up by Glazpart to develop closer collaboration with customers for mutual promotional benefit.

Tradelink Direct is a world class manufacturer with over 30 years of experience in supplying a wide range of high-quality windows, doors, sealed units and conservatories to installers throughout the UK.

A shining example of manufacturing excellence, Tradelink continuously looks to improve the overall product quality and excellent customer service. When the building regulations (Approved Document F – ventilation) changed in June 2022, Tradelink made sure their team was ahead of the game by ordering the best solution for trickle ventilation, namely the Link Vent from Glazpart.

The ‘Link Vent’ range sizes include 5000, 4000 and 2500 EQA. Equivalent Area (EQA) is the measure of the vents’ airflow performance.

The vents are designed to fully comply with building regulations, Approved document F1 (means of ventilation).

The Link Vent follows a clever design that is simple and user-friendly for both opening and closing – the innovative closing action allows the closure plate to be positioned so that it reduces draughts by directing air away from occupants.

The Link Vent 4000 and 5000 closure plate is split to allow for partial (50%) opening and greater ease of opening of the ventilator.

The Link Vent also has rounded ends of the vent to allow for installation on timber windows and it is available in either screw or clip in fixing types – the design eliminates the need for end caps whilst the clip fix design (Pawl’s) allows for a fast, easy vent installation.

With smart design, easy fitting, and functionality as well as a huge choice of 1000s of colours and decorative finishes, it is easy to see why Tradelink decided to use the Link Vent for the range of PVC-U and Aluminium windows and doors.

On becoming a Glazpartner, Kelly Buttriss, Head of Operational Delivery at Tradelink commented, “We are pleased to be Glazpartners and also delighted we chose Glazpart’s Link Vent range, not only to comply with the regulations but also because of its smart design and wide range of colours and finishes. It’s also an easy product to install; it works for all our window and door profiles across our extensive range.”

Dean Bradley, Sales Director, Glazpart added, “We are delighted that a high-quality manufacturer such as Tradelink are now Glazpartners and continue to use our Link Vent range. The award-winning Link Vent is proving ever popular with manufacturers and fabricators across the UK. I look forward to further collaboration with Tradelink on product solutions and of course ensuring they get the full promotional benefits from being a Glazpartner.”
