Hi,

Any idea what model / part number the trickle vent in the attached is?

One upvc window in the house I moved into has its exterior trickle vent missing (second attachment) and I am trying to find a replacement that matches the trickle vents in all the other windows of the house.

Thanks

It looks as if your vent is simply missing the end caps..
All the windows in my house have trickle vents like this. Does it mean the installer went around and removed the caps on a dozen of windows? And that would be because?
 
How Old are the windows?

The scre cap covers definetly aren't missing as you can see them in the pic , thats just the style of vent... haven't seen one like that before tbh, most have the types of caps that Harry is linking to in the Simonvent ones,
 
There's so many variations of trickle vents on the market it's near impossible to sift through everyone's website to try and find, I suggest taking one off to see if there's a makers name or model/part number and Google that, it's where I usually start

Ok - will try taking one off and see if there is a part number

No part number or model whatsoever :(

The external bit has screw cap that broke as soon as you touch them as they harden with weather. Plus there is a tiny sealant stripe on top (that broke as soon as I removed the vent) to avoid water ingress from the top. Never understood trickle vents but that is another subject...
