Order 100mm 4 Inch Stainless Steel Galvanised Wire Balloon
When you create a soil system, building regulations state that any soil vent needs to be at least 900mm above the level of any window within 3m. This ensures any unpleasant odours are released appropriately – but it also makes an attractive perch for birds, an potential nest hole for squirrels, and an upright that can attract debris on a windy day.
To keep you stack clear, you’ll need protection at the top of the vent. Our galvanised wire balloons offer exactly that.
Our 110mm 4 Inch Galvanised Wire Balloons inserted into the top of the downpipe (110mm Soil Pipe) at safety level and prevents leaves and pests from getting into the 110mm downpipe.
Material: Galvanised steel/stainless steel
Fitting a galvanised wire balloon is a simple job – especially if you’re yet to put up your soil vent.
The legs of the balloon slide into the 110mm pipe you’ve used to create your vent – and because they protrude slightly more than the 110mm diameter of the pipe, they grip firmly to the inside. As a result, any side-to-side motion caused by wind won’t disturb the balloon. The diameter of the galvanised wire balloon stops over-insertion too.
Should you need to remove the steel wire balloon, it’ll simply slide back out – allowing you to clean and maintain your stack.
At EasyMerchant, we make sure our galvanised wire balloons meet strict British manufacturing standards – so you can be confident that parts you use will stand up to whatever comes their way. The galvanised steel wire construction of our balloons will leave you confident that they’ll look good and work well as long as your soil system is in place.
