Ventilation for your home or workplace is beneficial in both summer and winter. Summer heat traps hot air in the roofline and can create a stuffy and uncomfortable environment inside, where an effective ventilation system would spin the heat out. Likewise in winter, when heating is on inside and air is cold outside, dampness tends to collect in the roofline which can cause moisture and mould if not removed.
Galaxy Rooflite are proud to supply a superb range of vents from the basic no frills brand through to straight vane heavy commercial vents. Their name is a badge of quality as they have been operating for over 30 years. Their vents can be adapted to cater for dampers both electric and manual, and they can custom make bases to suit the project if required or you can take an off the shelf version all ready to go.

It simply makes sense to support natural air flows through Rooftop Ventilation Systems to minimise any need for powered fans and electrically run machinery, wherever possible, thereby reducing greenhouse gases. As all extreme heat, gases, stale air and smoke rise to the highest points of a contained space, rooftop vents offer the perfect exhaust positioning. With the correct ratio of air inlets lower down in the structure, you create a flow that draws fresh air in, and stale air out.
Some workplaces are also exposed to explosive and corrosive conditions, so Building Management Systems can be designed to better manage any exposure to contaminant build ups, internal and external differentials and fail-safes for worst case scenarios.
Being cool and spendthrift has never been so easy. Call us to assist you with your project ventilation design. We have designs appropriate for residential, commercial and extreme industrial environments.
Wet areas need continuous and effective ventilation to prevent damage to building materials from excessive moisture. Cross flow venting is inefficient, while mechanical venting such as exhaust fans are only capable of extraction whilst on. Condor’s Dreadnought Pool Roof Ventilator overcomes these problems with its natural ventilating solution. Condor Roof Ventilators are manufactured in various sizes for industrial, commercial and domestic applications, and can be installed to any roof type.
For specialised roof ventilation, look to Condor’s GO Series, Micro Series and PR Series. GO Series Terminals were developed to provide a more efficient discharge medium for combustion gases emanating from gas and oil fuelled heaters and cooking stoves. The Micro Series was developed for the small ‘specialised to suit’ range of products and is primarily used in natural and low pressure venting of small areas. The PR Series vents were developed to provide a more efficient discharge of air when used with residential exhaust fans.
A lack of knowledge about energy solutions prevails in the residential climate control environment. Insulation, air conditioning, and ventilation have separate purposes; only ventilation can assist both heating and cooling. To achieve climate comfort without exorbitant expense, ventilation is the only option. Fabricated in stainless steel, the motionless Condor Kinetic roof ventilator requires no maintenance.
This state of the art roof ventilator operates as air currents on the roof created by solar gain and pressure differentials move across the conical sections. Creating a multi venturi effect, air volume is drawn out of the building, assisted by the thermal load within. Unrivalled in its ability to provide continuous ventilation in all weather conditions with no operational or maintenance cost, the Condor is the most efficient natural architectural building roof ventilation system
The Solar Star offers customers the most environmentally-friendly, technologically-advanced ventilation solution, with zero operation costs and long-term weather-resistance.
