Wallbarn PVC Vents/Aerators

Wallbarn also supplies vents in PVC, for use with compatible synthetic waterproofing membranes. They are designed to aerate the concrete and help the structure to breath.

As with the TPE Vents for bituminous membranes, PVC decks will also require sufficient aeration to avoid vapour build-up and potential blistering of the waterproofing membrane.

The vent is designed to draw this moisture away from the concrete slab. It is placed onto the bare concrete beneath the waterproofing membrane and insulation.

These vents are installed in a different manner to the TPE varieties in that they will be heat-bonded to the PVC waterproofing membrane, or be bonded with a suitable adhesive, beneath the main membrane. Applicators should get advice from the waterproofing manufacturer for the best installation technique.

The membrane is applied over the base of the vent. This creates a “flue” which helps to draw the vapour out of the concrete. There are a series of ribs along the underside of the round base plate (or flange) to encourage the vapour movement. The ribs on the underside stop about 5 cm from the edge of the base or flange in order to help with the bond between the PVC membrane and the unit.

The top of the pipe or flue has three lateral holes to allow the vapour to escape into the atmosphere. It is covered by a hood or cap which overlaps the internal holes, preventing rainwater entering the system but still allowing the passage of vapour.

Wallbarn recommends a vent is placed at least every 25m2.

As with the other material, Wallbarn can supply the PVC vent in three different sizes. The standard vent (on the left hand side) has a flue of 240mm high and approximately 75mm in diameter. This is the most common type of vent produced.

A shorter, broader vent can also be produced if a shorter pipe is required or the extra-long vent pipe, at 400mm is also available.

The PVC vents are UV stable and resistant to the elements. They are designed to be extremely tough and durable, and are designed for long-term durability.
