Ventilation for Raked and Cathedral Ceilings

Rooms with raked & cathedral ceilings are vented direct to atmosphere

The upper region of the room or area has a high heat load consisting of convected and conductive load, resulting from the sun's radiation on the roof, which has overloaded and permeated through the insulation, and internal heat load, making comfort levels in the living area somewhat unbearable.

An appropriately sized Condor Kinetic Cupola Roof Ventilator, with matching ceiling register, will allow the heat in the room to escape and consequently improve comfort levels in a natural manner and without reliance on power assistance.
The ventilator will vent the area direct to atmosphere through the closeable ceiling register.

Air-conditioned houses, either refrigerated or evaporative, benefit considerably by having a Condor Kinetic Roof Ventilator installed, to eliminate air conditioner overload and reduce power usage.

Remember, cool air characteristically always falls to the lower region of a room.
It will not naturally rise up to the ventilator

Consequently only the upper region, of a multi level home, is vented naturally

Ceiling registers are manually opened and closed, or any incremental opening within the range, to control heat loss during winter. Electrically operated airflow controllers are also available.

The Condor Roof Ventilator can be structurally mounted to the roof making it ideal for cyclonic regions.
Construction is welded stainless steel and finished with polyester resin in colorbond colours.

Fire Risk Areas

All Condor products are manufactured in Australia so as to maintain high quality control

All Condor products are architectural in nature in that they are supplied project specific.
Ventilators are supplied as per roof type, pitch and profile enabling correct and efficient installation.

When requesting information about Condor roof ventilators please advise as to your dwelling type and size, roof type (steel, tile etc.) and your location.

    Raked or Cathedral type dwelling ventilators are chosen on individual application as the area being vented is volumetric living area, not roof attic area

    This is a general indication as to what is required in respect to roof ventilator sizes using Condor technology

    One appropriately sized roof ventilator is always more efficient that multiple smaller.
