Glidevale helps Aran Services to combat roof space condensation

Insulation technicians from energy efficiency and property improvement firm Aran Services have been brushing up their skills in fitting Glidevale tile ventilators at Glidevale’s sister company BPD Manufacturing Solutions in Pinxton.

Working with local authorities and housing associations across the UK to make homes more energy efficient, Aran is installing Glidevale tile roof ventilators for a number of social housing providers’ refurbishment programmes. Where additional insulation is installed during roofing insulation upgrades, ventilation requirements change and should conform to standards set out in BS 5250. When retrofitting, slate and tile ventilators are the easiest way to provide controlled ventilation and combat harmful condensation that would otherwise form within the roof space.

“We are pleased to add Glidevale tile ventilation to our range of improvements that we are able to offer homes and businesses nationwide”, said Alan Phillips, Aran Contracts Manager.

As part of its service to Aran, Glidevale’s Technical Team has undertaken site surveys and given guidance across various housing developments throughout the UK, to ascertain the type of tile vents required for the different roofs.

Surveys and training are just two complimentary support services that Glidevale’s Technical Team provides. Regulations guidance, toolbox talks, CPD presentations, site take offs, plot by plot delivery, CAD detailing and U-value calculations are also available.
