Introducing a brand new cavity venting system…
DrillVent is a new cavity venting system that not only solves the problems associated with the use of weep vents for cavity venting in timber framed buildings, but gives the added assurance that the cavity is suitably ventilated and drained.

DrillVent is retrospectively installed during the completion stage of the external wall. Concerns associated with the use of traditional weep vents for venting cavities are eliminated, ie. inadequate venting and insufficient drainage. With DrillVent, you are confident that the cavity is correctly ventilated and drained.
The slatted louvers are specifically designed to baffle direct blown wind. They are angled and spaced to promote the drying of condensation and rain-saturated outer leaf brick or blockwork whilst preventing the ingress of large insects. Drillvent is an ideal solution for the retro-fitting of vents that have simply been left out, become damaged or blocked during the construction process.
The circular design allows for efficient ventilation and is quick and easy to install. It has been engineered to be UV stable to ensure a long life. DrillVent is available in three standard colours; transparent, beige and terracotta, complimenting popular external brick and modern rendered finishes.
DrillVent has been tested according to the principles of CEN standard
EN13141-1: Ventilation for buildings – Performance testing of components/products for residential ventilation.
