Timloc launches innovative duct to airbrick adapter
Published: 18 August, 2015
Timloc, one of the UK’s leading building products manufacturers, has introduced a unique duct to airbrick adapter, which will transform industry practices and set a new standard in extraction installation.
Available now, the adapter provides a complete solution when ducting through to an exterior wall. It comes as a single unit in a convenient preassembled set that is built in as part of the brickwork package and enables first-fix ceiling duct extraction connections.
It terminates at a standard plastic airbrick, which is supplied with the set, and installed exactly the same way as standard practice, making the process quick and easy. The adapter is ready to fit straight from the box. It saves time, reduces cost and minimises the need for external fitters, core drilling and specialist tools.
One of Yorkshire’s well-respected and established regional house builders has been benefiting from Timloc’s duct to airbrick adapter sets for 18 months across all of its sites.
A spokesperson for the builder commented:
“We previously made our own variant of the adapter sets on site, using individually sourced components. This took up time and resource for both our purchasing and site teams, and often resulted in components getting lost on site. It was also prone to both assembly and installation errors.
“The Timloc duct to airbrick adapters come as complete units, so they are quick and simple to build in as part of the brickwork – saving us time and money. We now have assurance that assembly and installation errors are virtually eliminated.”
Timloc’s Sales Director Dave Bean said:
“Some people are already using duct to extraction adapters. However, they are sourcing the required components themselves, often from different manufacturers and suppliers, and then the components have to be put together. This is probably done on site, adding more time to the process.
“Our new duct to airbrick adapter makes the whole installation process quicker and easier and also saves on cost.”
Available in a variety of airbrick colours, the adapter is suitable for bathrooms, en-suites, WC cloakrooms and utilities.
