Innovative retrofit roofing vent launched in the UK

Retrofitted from inside the roof space, Kima’s Inside-Out Vent provides a new fast and simple solution to condensation build-up

Leading Danish manufacturer, KIMA Roofing Accessories, is delighted to announce that it has introduced its innovative Inside-Out roofing vent to the UK market, providing both the professional trades, DIYers, and housing managers with the chance to solve condensation problems from inside the roof space, without the need for scaffolding or any external works.

The introduction of the Inside-Out coincides with a greater awareness of the greener advantages of retrofitting instead of demolishing and re-building.  Moreover, the UK Government’s plans, announced in July, for a £50m fund to pilot innovative retrofit projects for social housing, provides increased impetus for the sector.  It is against this backdrop that Kima Roof Accessories has entered the UK market, having already embarked on a programme of expansion across the continent.

Kima’s Export Manager, Glenn Hansen, said, “Having successfully expanded across much of northern Europe, we are excited to be bringing the Kima range of roofing products to the UK, especially our innovative KimaAir Inside-Out ventilator, which we have developed to provide a solution to the almost impossible problem of retrofitting ventilators after the roof tiles have been laid. This is our first time in the UK and we are looking forward to meeting, and working with, our colleagues across the industry.”

Apart from the Inside-Out ventilator, the company has been instrumental in bringing a wide range of other innovative building products to the market, and the combination of performance, manufacturing quality and design has led to the firm producing both Kima labelled products, as well as those for own-branding by a number of leading manufacturers, suppliers and merchants. Kima’s Inside-Out is now available nationwide via leading merchants and roofing specialists, and the company welcomes further enquiries from potential partners.
