GLAZPART LOOKS FORWARD TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE AWARDS

Following the announcement of Glazpart’s Link Vent 4000 shortlisting for three awards at the Building Performance Awards organised by The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), the Glazpart team is now looking forward to attending the prestigious awards event in London on 29th February.

Dean Bradley, Glazpart Sales Director enthused, “Just to be a finalist in three awards for best product innovation for building performance is quite exceptional in its own right. The Link Vent 4000 is not only an essential product that is in much demand in our industry, but it is also now being recognised for its contribution to homeowners’ wellbeing and for the difference it makes to the quality of their lives when living in their homes.”

As the only glass or glazing product to be shortlisted in this year’s awards, Glazpart’s Link Vent 4000 has been nominated for three “Best Product Innovation” awards in the following categories: Wellbeing, Air Quality and Thermal Comfort.

The Link Vent 4000 has proved to be an important addition to Glazpart’s trickle vent range since it was launched in 2022 in time for the Building Regulations’ changes to Approved Document F (ventilation). Its design and easy control mechanism, as well as its availability in a vast range of colours and finishes has made the Link Vent 4000 an extremely popular choice for fabricators, installers and homeowners – especially for windows and doors of smaller rooms such as kitchens, bathrooms, hallways and utility rooms.

The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) is the professional body that advances and promotes the art, science and practice of building services engineering. CIBSE also supports the community of built environment professionals in their pursuit of excellence.

The CIBSE Building Performance Awards always attracts high quality entries and a diverse selection of projects, companies, people and products from across the building industry.

The annual event showcases the achievements of companies and individuals who develop strategies for refurbishment and energy-efficient operation of existing buildings, design new buildings that operate more effectively and develop the products and systems that support them. Those shortlisted included detailed evidence which demonstrated actual measured performance and not just design intent or performance specifications.

Dean Bradley summarised, “We are looking forward to the awards event in a few weeks and flying the flag for the glazing industry. It promises to be a great occasion.”

Winners from the shortlisted entries will be announced at the CIBSE Building Performance Awards on Thursday 29 February 2024, at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London. For more information on the Awards, please visit the awards website.

            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.”

                The Value of Partnerships

                Glazpart is delighted to announce that General All-purpose Plastics (GAP) have become Glazpartners – the marketing partnership set up by Glazpart to develop closer collaboration with customers for mutual benefit.

                GAP are low maintenance PVC-U building product specialists, who have been successfully supplying the trade for 30 years for both the residential and commercial building markets.

                The low maintenance specialists supply (the GAP brands) across England, Scotland and Wales across an expansive network of over 85+ depots covering the UK from Inverness all the way to Southampton.

                GAP has extensive knowledge and experience when it comes to fenestration and are a proud to be a Glazpartner as they have been using the Glazpart vents within their designs for over a year, upgrading to the Link Vent after the Building Regulations (Part F ventilation) changed in July 2022.

                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).

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

                With smart design, easy fitting, and functionality as well as a huge choice of 1000s of colours and decorative finishes, it’s easy to see why GAP chose the Link Vent for its extensive range of windows and doors.

                Simon Bird, Joint MD, GAP commented, “It is an honour to develop our partnership with Glazpart, who have provided an incredible solution to what has been an issue for the fenestration sector in recent years. This newly formed partnership will allow us to continue providing our customers with the best quality units for installation whilst meeting the updated regulations with ease.”

                Dean Bradley, Sales Director, Glazpart added, “We are delighted that GAP are Glazpartners and happy to supply our award-winning Link Vent range for GAP windows and doors. The Link Vent offers a superb solution for ventilating the home and blends in with the overall design of the window. Its proving increasingly popular with fabricators, manufacturers, installers and homeowners across the UK.”
