Vents better. Let your walls breathe with the new drill vent from Timloc. Designed with high airflow.

Drill Vent

Let your walls breathe with Drill Vent by Timloc.

This new and improved retrospective cavity wall weep is designed with high air flow and is perfect for venting timber frames and both high and low-level ventilation and drainage to an external cavity wall.

The Drill Vent by Timloc is quick and easy to install. Its circular design allows for an efficient ventilation air flow of 335m², which is 25% more air flow than the previous design. And its integral curved louvres reduce entry of wind driven rain.

The Drill Vent is available in a range of colours including clear, terracotta and buff and can be purchased in pack quantities of 100 or more.

Features & Benefits +

  • Purpose made and pre-formed to guarantee reliable ventilator
  • Quick and easy to install in a 25mm diameter drilled hole
  • Circular design allows efficient ventilation air flow of 335mm²
  • Integral curved louvres are designed to maximize air flow and reduce entry of wind driven rain

Applications +

  • Can be used in any situation where ventilation is required in an external cavity wall
  • Ideal for venting timber framed buildings and external rendered wall finishes
  • Can be used as a solution to retro-fitting - when insufficient wall weeps have previously been installed or have been blocked
  • For high and low level cavity wall ventilation
  • On external wall of 100mm or more in thickness and build from brick, block or stone

Installation advice +

  • To meet NHBC standards for cavity ventilation in external timber framed walls, fit each ventilator at 600mm centres
  • To meet The Building (Scotland) Regulations for ventilating cavities within masonry outer leaf walls, fit each ventilator at 1200mm centres
  • To meet Building Regulations Part C for external wall cavity drainage at low level, fit each unit at 900mm centres
  • To form weep holes to drain cavity trays, install each unit at 450mm centres above openings and 900mm centres to other areas
  • High level vents are located externally 200 - 225mm below the soffit or roof barge. Low level vents should be installed in the DPC at ground level. At this level, it doubles as a drain for the cavity as well as a vent
  • If the cavity is bridged or closed at intermediate floor levels, cavity venting, and drainage should be provided above and below the bridge
  • Identify the location at which you need to place the vent. A 25mm hole is cored at spacing centres required
  • The vent has been designed to be installed at a slight angle (approx. 2.5°), to minimise any wind driven rain entering the cavity and allow the unit to drain freely. Therefore the hole is drilled through the external leaf with the drill inclined slightly upwards. It is recommended to use a drill with a depth setting as to avoid any damage to the internal leaf, insulation or breather membranes
  • Insert and align the ventilator into the hole and tap into place using a rubber mallet. The ventilator should finish flush with the wall surface
