A&B Glass

Having a strong relationship with Glazpart and other suppliers has been key to our success. The Link Vent range not only meets our responsibility to comply with the new regulations, but has a smart design, is easy to install and has a wide range of colours and finishes to ensure we can offer homeowners a broad selection.

Shaun Croft, Group Marketing Manager A&B Glass


A&B Glass for over 40 years has manufactured, supplied and installed high quality windows and doors (and related products), to become one of the few companies that provides a complete glazing service across the south of England.

Their home improvement division is primarily based in Sudbury in Suffolk where their dedicated fitting teams deliver first class home improvements in Suffolk and surrounding counties.

Manufacturing over 1600 frames per week, A&B were one of the early adopters of the most innovative trickle vents in the industry, namely the Link Vent.

For over seven years, Glazpart has supplied the Link Vent range to A&B Glass so the recent changes to Building Regulations (Approved Document F) in June 2022, made compliance fairly straightforward.

The “Link Vent” range sizes include 5000, 4000 and 2500 EQA. Equivalent Area (EQA) is the measure of the vents air flow 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 flexibility of 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 A&B Glass decided to use the Link Vent for their range of uPVC and Aluminium windows and doors.

We are pleased to deliver high quality products like our Link Vents to complement A&B’s range of windows and doors. The Link Vent with its design features and colour ranges, is the go-to solution for manufacturers, fabricators and consumers when it comes to both compliance and aesthetics.
