Order a 160mm Soil Pipe Vent Cowl in Grey Online
If you’ve installed a soil stack in a property, you’ll be aware that building regulations state that the soil vent should be 900mm above the level of any window with 3m. While this is an important health and environmental consideration, it does mean you create an attractive resting place for birds, an interesting hole for squirrels, and an opening for debris to enter.
To make sure nesting birds, curious rodents and debris carried by the wind doesn’t enter your soil vent pipe, you should install protection at the top of the vent. A vent terminal is a lightweight and cost-effective way to do exactly that.
Made of uPVC for strength and durability, our terminals work perfectly with 160mm pipes, and since they’re available in both black and grey, they look good finishing either plastic or cast iron effect stacks. In fact, a uPVC terminal with an adaptor is a cost-effective way of finishing a cast iron soil system, especially since the height of the vent prevents close inspection.
Fitting a soil pipe cowl
