NOT QUITE UNIVERSAL

"Product seems to be good quality but I'd like to see better instructions for a novice user like me! They are supposed to replace "any" standard size slate but were far wider than the narrow ones on my 1920's bungalow. Fitting them was not possible without too much cutting and slate removal so I had to get a refund. Shame as they would have done the job really well. The low stars for performance etc are because I can't comment on these aspects."

"Item is good quality, as the other reviewer says you need an aditional pipe if you are connecting to a 110mm pipe, I connect a 150mm flexi pipe cable tied from the extraction fan. Jobs a good one."

"i bought this item because it looked a good price got it home and realized this needed a second part (flixy pipe) this should be advertise these together or make the hole to suit the round pipe from the ducting as this feels like a rip off for the fist time using screwfix"

Buyer Beware

"As stated on the other review, spigot is a really silly shape causing the purchase of the Alpha connector. This double the cost of the vent and must be considered when buying.
Overall though a shame as good quality.

beware other item needed

"From the picture this vent looks like you can just stick a normal pipe onto it but the spigot is actually a very long oval which means you have to buy the adapter to be able to fit a normal 4" duct pipe! Doesn't say this in the product description or the screwfix catalogue that you need an extra item (I ordered online). The Manufacturer "Manthorpe" said I need a GRPA which I think is the "Flexi Pipe" advertised in the catalogue. I am going to buy it and see. The adapter costs as much as the vent! Nice one Screwfix!"
