Vent-A-Roof® for Sheds

The perfect and most cost-effective roof ventilation solution for residential and light industrial sheds

Why is it Important to Ventilate Your Shed

While shed ventilation tends to be an afterthought when considering building a shed, it can be one of the most important elements when it comes to comfort. Ventilation reduces the temperature inside your shed providing you with a more comfortable environment. It also reduces the risk of condensation problems which might affect the quality of the air as well as the integrity of the items stored in it. If there’s too much moisture in your shed due to stagnant air, mould can begin to grow and possibly deteriorate the belongings and equipment stored here.

Benefits of Vent-A-Roof® For Your Metal Shed

Besides improving the airflow, shed ventilation with Vent-A-Roof® helps balance the air temperature inside your shed bringing the interior temperatures closer to the external ambient temperature. Which in turn gives you a more comfortable experience inside your shed and improves energy efficiency (if cooling/heating systems are used inside the shed). With the innovative Vent-A-Roof® system, there’s no need for whirlybirds, no moving parts that create noise and no need to penetrate the roof. Which minimises the possibility of water leaks when installed properly.
