THE UNIVERSAL TILE VENTILATOR EXHAUST VENT ADAPTOR
BATHROOM - KITCHEN - LAUNDRY
DUCT FOR CONCRETE TILES
Unobtrusive, Highly Effective
EXHAUST FANS FOR BATHROOMS NEED TO BE DUCTED TO THE OUTSIDE ATMOSPHERE
Most houses in Australia do not have the waste from the kitchens and bathroom fans ducted to the outside atmosphere, they simply dump into the roofspace of the home, this can cause all kinds of problems and is a very big contributor to Sick Building Syndrome.
What is Sick Building Syndrome? There are many causes, most causes are related to poor air quality. The World Health Organisation Report into Sick Building Syndrome suggests up to 40% of newly built and renovated homes could be linked to this syndrome. The causes can be attributed to inadequate ventilation, chemical contaminates, bacteria, mould and mildew.
THERE IS MORE THAN ONE UNWANTED COMPANION IN THE ROOFSPACE DUE TO NON DUCTED BATHROOMS
Damage to the roof cavity: Structural damage, dry rot to timber insulation can trap moisture reducing the R value with the trapped moisture resulting in ceiling damage creating the perfect environment for termites and all the following allergy problems.
Moisture in the roof cavity can contribute to allergy problems: asthma, fungal infections, sick building syndrome due to growth of bacteria, mildew, mould ie: mould fungus growing in poorly ventilated spaces travel through the air in tiny spoors triggering allergic responses. The film star Brittany Murphy died from pneumonia it is suspected that this was due to toxic mould in her apartment, her husband died six months later from the same cause.
As our endeavour is to explain to you the problems of not ducting your kitchens and bathrooms to the outside atmosphere, we would inform you that large quantities of water vapour are produced by cooking, washing, showers and heating, condensing to form 11 litres of moisture a day, with the moisture trapped in the roofspace.
The importance of ducting kitchens and bathrooms to the outside atmosphere instead of dumping them into the roofspace cannot be trivialised.
The best way to do this is connect via flexible ducting from the bathroom or kitchen fan directly to a Universal Tile Duct or a Smoothline
Ventilator Duct in the case of a corrugated colorbond roof. With the Smoothlines you have the choice of a double duct or a single duct, all of these work well to remove all the contaminates that otherwise would have stayed in the roofspace creating havoc.
It is an absolute health hazard to allow these fans to dump into the roof cavity.
Exhaust fans for bathrooms, kitchen exhaust fans all need to be ducted to the outside atmosphere.
Universal Tile Ventilators
Prepare to be amazed at the results you achieve.
Anything else is a compromise.
The UTV Exhaust Vent is ideal for any application to exhaust household bathrooms, toilets, laundries, kitchens or any room in the home allowing air exchange to outside atmosphere from the UTV Duct via ducting thru the roof to whatever ceiling application through convection and free air flow rather than by mechanical means.
The UTV Exhaust Vent is ideal for any application to exhaust household bathrooms, toilets, laundries, kitchen’s or any room in the home allowing air exchange to outside atmosphere from the UTV Duct via ducting thru the roof to whatever ceiling application through convection and free air flow rather than by mechanical means.
However, Mechanical Means: An enclosed bathroom or toilet etc would need an extraction fan at ceiling application via ducting thru roof to UTV Exhaust Duct to outside atmosphere.
However when the extraction fan is not in use the Exhaust Duct will allow gentle natural airflow between the ceiling and evacuation point. A door air grill would be added value in an airtight room.
