Roseview launches Eclipse trickle vent solution

Industry-leading sash window specialist and Secured by Design member company Roseview Windows has launched Eclipse - a new concealed trickle vent system for their Heritage and Ultimate Rose sash windows.

Eclipse is a two-part hood system that replaces the external trickle vent hood with a foil-matched aluminium cover and separate flyscreen, both of which run the full width of the window. It attaches directly to the top of the window frame without adding any height. The system is manufacturer-tested in accordance with BS EN 13141-1.

Roseview Director Mike Bygrave explains the new system: “While Part F insists on trickle vents in most circumstances, sash windows are a heritage style. Visible trickle vents can compromise the traditional aesthetic, especially in the eyes of homeowners.

“In response we’ve looked at various ways of including trickle vents on sash windows as discreetly as possible, which in turn led to Eclipse. We first showed Eclipse as a concept at FIT Show 2023, and the response was overwhelmingly positive.

“Eclipse is now one of four methods we offer for including trickle vents. We already have a concealed overhead vent option, but as a chambered uPVC profile it requires the height of the window to be reduced by 25mm. Eclipse is a flat aluminium section, shaped to resemble a subtle drip head and foiled to match the window. It fits on top of the window without adding to the height, and can be cut back at the sides to fit behind brick or stone reveals. It also has the advantage of having no internal projection that needs to be bridged with trims or architrave.”

When ordered Eclipse will come pre-fitted to Roseview’s Heritage or Ultimate Rose windows, and is available to the trade from February 2024.
