Ventilation of structures

Ensuring proper ventilation of roof structures prevents condensation, water damage and further fungal and microbic growth inside these constructions. Renovating the damage caused by damp or mould can be very costly, and it is therefore important to pay attention to the adequate ventilation of roof structures – both in small and large buildings. If a roof is not ventilated properly, moist air rising through the building can condense and cause moisture in the thermal insulation of the roof. During winter, this moisture can freeze and cause the thermal insulation to lose its insulating properties, which in turn can result in a significant rise in heating costs. Excessive moisture also promotes the growth of fungi, moulds and micro-organisms, which destroy the structures within a building. Accordingly, VILPE offers a range of high-quality products to ensure proper ventilation of roof structures. This product category contains the VILPE Alipai Negative Pressure air vents, which allow the roof to breathe, ventilating internal roof structures and ensuring the efficient removal of moisture. A negative pressure air vent is also suitable for ventilating a cold attic space. Their operation is based on the air pressure difference caused by the wind. Alipai air vents are available for the low-pitched, inclined and ridge sections of low-pitched roofs. Our range also includes smaller KTV roof vents--which can be used for ventilating roof structures, attic spaces and sewer pipes--as well as associated accessories and other types of roof vent. The KTV roof vent can be selected from 10 different models according to the roofing material being used.
