VV3 Air Brick


9 x 3 Slotted Air Brick painted black.

A very common air brick, advertised at the turn of the century and featured in many ironmongers catalogues thereby ensuring a a wide ranging distribution across much of UK and Europe. Used extensively in late Victorian and Edwardian properties and unusually, fitted both inside and outside properties, often for supplying combustion air for open fires.

For larger orders we can supply air bricks in any RAL colour, professionally primed with 3 part epoxy 2 part gloss or matt top coat at an additional cost of £200+vat –  please email item number, quantity and RAL number for a proforma cost for this.

This imperial air brick can be used with the METIMP aluminium sleeve and/or duct tape to use with the metric plastic Rytons ducting for cavity wall sleeves and periscope duct which are available separately on this website.

It isn’t possible to install flymesh at the back of this air brick as the mesh will either become dislodged or will block without the ability to clean it. If flies, wasps and bugs are gaining entrance to the property via the vents and are a nuisance the FLY3 cast iron air brick with removable front and integral mesh may be a more suitable alternative. Please note mesh cannot legally be used (UK – current GAS Safe and HETAS regulations apply)  vents where the vents are required to feed a combustion appliance or the room where there is a combustion appliance.

The majority of purchases for this product are to replace like for like or for installation in extensions or improve exisiting ventilation and match already installed VV3s. Not only is its use wide ranging geographically but also wide ranging in terms of building types it is installed in, customers range from a tiny cottage in Padstow to the 12th century ruined Abbey at Creake, Fakenham

Painted vents use two part epoxy black gloss top coat which is hard wearing but is just a decorative finish, like all painted cast iron products it will require repainting from time to time, especially if situated on an exposed wall. Repainting can be frequent if the grille is positioned in the sunlight, or chipped or exposed to salt air . The gloss paint will dull over time, in exposed conditions it is likely to dull to a satin sheen fairly quickly. Regardless of the paint finish the cast iron grille will last for many decades with or without painting.
