Roof Ventilation

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.

Galaxy Tornado ventilators are wind-driven ventilators that continuously replace built up super-heated air in your roof cavity with clean fresh air all year round. All Galaxy Tornado ventilators have a high performance aluminium construction.

The Galaxy Tornado 300 can make your home more comfortable to live by keeping you cooler in summer and by removing moisture in winter which is caused by steam build up from bathroom extraction fans.
