The VPSS was created by Ventrolla’s founder, Robert Tunicliffe. Drawing on his experience designing gaskets and seals for Ford Motors, this innovative window seal has evolved over the last 40-years into a precision-manufactured system. Thousands of homes across the UK already have it fitted and are benefiting from a less draughty home.
Essentially, this is draught-proofing technology, which acts as a barrier to cold air which is entering the home. VPSS brings with it a selection of other plus points, too – and has been tested to offer the following benefits:
Say goodbye to drafts and energy loss! VPSS is designed to create an airtight seal around windows and doors, preventing heat or cool air from escaping your space. This translates into substantial energy savings and a reduced carbon footprint.
Experience a new level of comfort with VPSS. No more chilly drafts or unwanted noise disturbing your peace. Our sealing system ensures that your living or working space remains cosy and quiet, enhancing your overall well-being.
Windows and doors are significant investments in your property. VPSS helps protect that investment by preventing water ingress, and reducing the risk of damage to frames and sills. Extend the lifespan of your windows and doors with our advanced sealing technology.
We understand that every property is unique. That’s why VPSS is customizable to fit various window and door styles. Whether you have traditional sash windows or modern casement windows, Ventrolla has the perfect sealing solution for you.
Our perimeter sealing system seamlessly integrates with your existing windows and doors, preserving the aesthetic appeal of your property. Upgrade your energy efficiency without compromising on style.
The Ventrolla system consists of two parts. The first phase is the renovation process which treats the wood and ensures the window is fully operational. The second phase is the performance upgrade, by installing our unique draught-proofing system, the Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS).
Ventrolla has developed a unique Wood Repair System (VR90) that has been designed to extend the life of wooden windows and doors.
VR90 wood repair is a two-part epoxy resin designed to impart the original strength to tenon joints and to fill cavities in sills, which it achieves through bonding with the original timber.
The system’s core benefits are:
Application All windows are inspected and surveyed prior to quotation and commencing work. At installation, sashes are removed and the condition of the timber, glass and pulleys are fully assessed.
NB: In the case of larger repairs or where economics dictate, we splice in new timber, or, in the case of a rotten sill, we can replace it completely.
The Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS) has been specifically designed to be installed into any shape or size wooden window or door.
The system upgrades the performance of original wooden windows and doors without affecting either their appearance or character.
As shown in Diagram A below, the system is installed to provide a seal on all faces and becomes an integral part of the window or door.
The system’s core benefits are:
A Perimeter Sealing System using a Weatherfin two-piece parting bead, compromising of a pile carrier fitted into a U-section, is installed in and around the sashes.
The sealing system:
The sealing system is installed to the top of the box, mid rail, bottom rail, parting bead and staff beads.
The sashes are weighed and the weights are adjusted to ensure the window is correctly balanced and operates smoothly.
All exposed and bare wood is painted with one coat of white acrylic primer to BS5082.
The sashes are reinstalled and staff beads fitted (if the easy-release Sash Removal System is being installed removable staff beads are fitted and corked).
Windows are then checked for smooth operation.
