Innovation from Timloc facilitates large cost saving for housing developer

Adapt-Air units have been installed by one of the UK’s leading housebuilders on a new housing development in Wombwell, South Yorkshire. 

Adapt-Air is the ducting to airbrick adapter designed and manufactured by Timloc Building Products, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of a wide range of sustainable building products from ground level up to the roof ridge.

The ventilation kit has been designed to be easily built in as part of the brickwork package and connects directly to internal extraction. Adapt-Air removes the re-work of cutting through brickwork and the need for unsightly and noisy gravity flap vents. The pre-assembled ducting to airbrick adapter also helps to meet Building Regulation Part F. 

Utilising Adapt-Air delivers a significant cost-saving by eliminating the need for core drilling and external fitters. This particular development consisted of approximately 150 plots and the use of Adapt-Air facilitated a phenomenal cost saving of approximately £40,000 for the housebuilding company.

Adapt-Air eliminates the mess, time and potential safety issues associated with core drilling, as well as the hassle of on-site kit assembly. The site manager was thrilled with the practicality of the Adapt-Air units, easing the typical hassle of installing ductwork:

“Adapt-Air has removed a health and safety problem for me on-site with core drilling and you can’t put a price on that.” – Site Manager 

The cost-effective Adapt-Air is delivered pre-assembled, ready to fit straight out of the box – saving time, reducing costs and minimising the need for external fitters, core drilling and specialist tools. Adapt-Air also promotes best practice for the installation of cavity trays as the work proceeds.

Kirsty Harrop, Marketing Manager at Timloc Building Products, comments:

“We are proud to be able to deliver cutting-edge solutions like Adapt-Air to help streamline and elevate the housebuilding process. Through continuous product innovation we have been able to develop a product that not only advances existing practices but also mitigates safety issues on site, which is of fundamental importance.”

Adapt-Air can be used at floor level voids and through external walls and is suitable for round and rectangular rigid extraction ductwork from Bathrooms, WC cloakrooms, Utility rooms and Kitchens.
