Turbine Ventilators

Effective ventilation for homes and industrial buildings, with no electricity and no maintenance.

How turbine ventilators work

A turbine ventilator is a round mental vent with fins, usually mounted on a roof.

Even a gentle breeze causes it to spin. This extracts stale, humid or polluted air, along with smoke, odours and fumes, from inside a building, causing fresh, clean air to enter in its place.

The turbine ventilators we offer

We offer general turbine ventilators, a premium home roof ventilator and a range of specialised ventilators – including ventilators for installing in chimneys and flues and industrial ventilators for extracting smoke, odours and vapours.

Our range of turbine ventilators is made from high- quality materials, to international standards.

Cost and environmental benefits

Turbine ventilators are a “green” and cost-effective solution for ventilating spaces. They don’t use any electricity to run and require no maintenance.

In summer, turbine ventilators extract heat, helping reduce air-conditioning bills.

In winter, roof ventilation systems also vent moisture-laden or overly humid air. This can help protect building structures and people’s health; too much moisture can deteriorate structures and promote mould growth in attic spaces.

Year round, turbine ventilation clears out airborne contaminants and replenishes oxygen levels in the air, creating a fresh, healthy environment.

More about turbine ventillators

How turbine ventilation works

Turbine ventilators harness the power of the wind to drive a centrifugal turbine dome that creates a vacuum to pull air out of a building. Even in the absence of wind, turbines will spin and allow hot air to rise out of the building; this is the natural process of convection.

Turbine ventilators keep dust out of buildings because the air is blown out of the turbine by the spinning motion of the turbine blades. Water is also kept out of the building; even in the heaviest rain storms, the specially designed grooves on the turbine repel water away from the turbine.

How to select a turbine ventilator

Turbovent’s extensive range of turbines allow you to find the perfect turbine for your application. Higher roofs generally require larger diameter turbines, whilst lower roofs require smaller turbines to allow even ventilation over the entire roofed area.

Coloured tiles on the roofs of homes are usually best suited to the SupaVent range which are available in a variety of colours to match the roof. A range of materials is also available from UV stabilised plastic to metal turbines. Lightweight aluminium turbines offer a performance and corrosion advantage over heavier galvanised metal turbines.

Turbovent has trained technicians who are able to assist in selecting and sizing the right turbine for you.

How turbines are installed

Turbines are installed on the roof; care must be taken to waterproof the installation properly. Installations should only be carried out by trained installers who will locate, space and seal turbines correctly.
