(1) What colours do they come in?
They come in a zincalume coated finish, you can paint them before you install them or after we recommend Galmet spray cans enamel paint in the colorbond range or Killrust spray cans.
(2) How long does it take for delivery?
7 to 10 working days by Australia Post however depending on the destination sometimes only a few days direct to your door.
(3) Can I Install them myself?
We have very comprehensive instructions on our website.
When we send our products out full instructions come with the product.
However if you cannot install them yourself and you do not want to get on a roof any handyman, roof tiler or roof plumber can install them for you.
We have installers that we can recommend to you in Sydney, Brisbane, and the Sunshine Coast.
(4) How well do they work?
“You will definitely feel the difference”.
The quality of these products and the benefits you will receive year in year out is a priceless investment in your future. There is nothing to compare.

(5) Do we recommend powder coating?
For the Smoothline Ventilators powder coating can be a desirable finish however spray painting is a much more economical finish and looks just as good.
For tiled roofs with powder coating is an unnecessary expensive option adding at least $15 per vent where as a can of spray paint will cost a maximum of $15 per can and will spray up to 10 vents, the paint will last for years and quickly blend in with the roof. The beauty of the spray can is that you can also age the look by hazing a lighter or darker colour over the already painted vent as this is the way rooftiles age (in a variegated pattern).
(6) Do you need eaves vents to induce air?
Both the Universal Tile Ventilator and Smoothline are complete systems and induce their own air.
Note: - Eaves vents in most cases are blocked to the roof space by insulation. If you have the mandatory insulation in your roof space the insulation extends from the ceiling to the roof tiles blocking airflow from the eaves to the roof space, rendering eaves vents (and any other vent that would depend on eaves vent inducement) useless.
(7) What is the comparison to whirlybirds?
Our systems actually work. Go to whirlybirds testing in the Case Studies and Reports section of our site.
(8) Will they leak? Definitely Not.
It is virtually impossible for our ventilator systems to leak:
The length of the ventilator is way too long for driven rain to cause capillary action into the roof space through the ventilators. Furthermore there is a baffle grill that will not allow driven rain due to the grill and pitch of the roof to even enter for more than 40 mil this is an advantage as the entry of the rain will keep cleaning the entry of the ventilator.
The ventilators have been installed in thousands of houses Australia wide through all types of storms, winds and deluges not one of them have leaked.
(9) Could they blow out?
Both systems have been installed in areas of cyclonic winds up to known storm cells of 130 km winds with continuing deluges of rain. That is actual winds on actual roofs (not in a wind tunnel testing situation) and have never blown out, as is the situation with ventilators that protude above the roof line.
