How to Install

Installation Guidelines for Air Admittance Valves

The installation of Air Admittance Valves (AAVs ) and the Studor P.A.P.A. can be broken down into three categories, depending upon the type of building concerned. By utilising these categories you can work out the precise benefits that will be derived as a result of installing the Studor range of products in a certain building.

Please note that with there will be exceptions to each example given below, as the architecture of drainage systems can differ depending on the layout and functionality of different buildings. The details below cover retrofits on existing buildings along with the installation instructions for new buildings.

Installation Guidelines for Low Rise Buildings

Install Low Rise Low rise buildings commonly use the Maxi-Vent and Mini-Vent AAVs as an appropriate means of venting. Typical examples could be residential homes, extensions, etc.


Installation Guidelines for Medium Rise Buildings

Install Medium Rise Medium rise buildings (up to 10 floors in height) commonly use the Mini-Vent AAV for branch ventilation combined with the Maxi-Vent for soil stack ventilation as the appropriate means of venting. Typical examples could be small tower blocks, hospitals, smaller arenas and stadiums.


Installations Guidelines for High Rise Buildings

Install High Rise High rise or multi-storey buildings (10 floors and more) commonly use the combination of the Mini-Vent, the Maxi-Vent and the Studor P.A.P.A. to provide the best complete solution.
