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.
With their headquarters in Blackburn, Lancashire, GAP has four manufacturing hubs spread across the UK and have been manufacturing, distributing and stocking PVC-U systems for over 25 years, including their Rockdoor composite doors and HomeFrame PVC-U windows and door brands.
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.
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 and 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’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.”
