There are many types of static roof vents in today’s market, to mention a few types – ridge vents, louver vents, gable vents, dormer vents, cupola vents, mushroom vents, free standing static vents etc.
Basically static roof vents are all natural roof ventilators and you cannot beat natural – you will save on energy costs with no moving parts to wear out – generally depending on what material they are fabricated from they will last for a very long time. However most of them do not have any design detail within them to allow them to harness the principles of fluid dynamics. Fluid dynamics – convection, the venturi effect and wind driven airflows.
For most static roof vents they just sit there on the roof needing some other form of inlet air such as eaves vents without any form of design within the vent to harness the use of fluid dynamics, so the possibility of them being of any value for roof ventilation is almost nil.
HOWEVER UNIVERSAL TILE VENTILATORS AND SMOOTHLINE VENTILATORS DO INCORPORATE DESIGN DETAIL WITHIN THE DESIGN OF THE PRODUCT TO HARNESS AND USE ALL THE PRINCIPLES OF FLUID DYNAMICS
Not only that, they are also aerodynamically designed to take anything Mother Nature has to throw at them – rain, hail, snow, cyclones and the Smoothline Ventilator System is the only roof ventilators that New South Wales Bushfire Brigade use on the buildings that house their bushfire fighting engines in the far south coast national forests. As well as the fact they are designed to use all the principles of fluid dynamics. They are designed to work as a system within themselves, without the need for any other product to induce air into the roofspace.
What they will do for you is keep your home cool in summer, keep your roof space dry from condensation and/or humidity moisture 24/7 365 days a year. For a one off cost will never need replacement, you can’t beat that.
So when you are looking for effective roof ventilation look no further, Universal Tile Ventilators for tiled roofs and Smoothline Ventilators for corrugated colorbond roofs.
