SkyVent

A wind directional skylight ventilator that removes hot, moist air from roof spaces while also providing natural light into the roof space. The advantages of the SkyVent are:

– Innovative new aerodynamic design. Aesthetically pleasing on all architecture
– Fully tested at the University of Technology, Sydney to AS4740
– Complies to the Building Code of Australia (BCA)
– 100% more efficient than other skylight ventilators
– Extracts heat from the roof space, reducing cooling costs
– Reduces condensation, mould and mildew improving the effectiveness of most types of insulation
– Removes stale air and odours
– Discourages possums, termites, rats, mice and other nocturnal pests
– Allows light transmission for storage space in the attic
– Hi-Impact dome made from UV, hail resistant Bayer Makrolon Polycarbonate
– Operates Silently with NO RUNNING COSTS

Includes installation instructions for both tiled and metal deck roofs.

The SkyVent is also ideal for sheds, bringing in natural light and ventilation without the need for a power connection!

SkyVent + Ventalite for any room that needs ventilation and light

A combined skylight with 300mm diameter x 1.8 m length flexi-light tube and adjustable diffuser to bring  natural ventilation and daylight, directly into any room of your home. The SkyVent is the only product of its type Daylight/ Natural ventilator that can ventilate 3600 L/min @ Sydney’s average windspeed.

The package includes a SkyVent  and a Ventalite kit (1.8 m flexi-light tube and adjustable ceiling diffuser with prismatic lens).

Ventilate at the source of moisture 24/7 Naturally!

Ideal for bathrooms- mechanical 90 mm vent tubes can also be connected to the 300 mm Ventalite tube to provide external exhaust. For a bathroom of 3.5m x 2.5m x 2.4m = 20m3., which = 20,000 Litres of air. The SkyVent can achieve 10 Air Changes/ Hour (ACH)

For kitchens- 150 mm ducting for rangehoods can also connect into the Ventalite tube to provide an exit exhaust outlet.

The SkyVent + Ventalite is a revolutionary dual function tubular skylight and ventilator. It brings the functions of a tubular skylight and a ventilator into one low cost product. The one tubular skylight is ventilated by the advanced designed Wind Directional transparent dome that points into the wind and extracts air out of rooms inside the house. Ideal for bathrooms to remove hot moist air at the source. The SkyVent + Ventalite is a low cost method of reducing artificial lighting and associated heat. Ventilation is provided via its flexible tube connected to the aerofoil dome to remove moisture to the outside of the building envelope. Condensation inside the house is dramatically reduced by ventilating the hot moist air from it’s source directly to the outside of the building envelope. The internal air quality of the house will be greatly improved by reducing mould, mildew and associated dust mites. May also reduce many asthma related issues associated with condensation.

The SkyVent works on stack effect as well as wind suction, allowing temperature and pressure to work for you, as hot less dense air rises it is replaced by cooler denser air. The advanced design works as a solar chimney so as soon as the sun warms the head of the unit and the attic space, the temperature flow starts to drive the warm air out. The smart design also allows continuous air flow from the adjustable diffuser, trickle ventilation or no ventilation by completely closing the diffuser – Truly an advanced system with the home owners comfort in mind! No wonder the SkyVent has received so much recognition.

It works because of its advanced aerodynamic design-

It is the only product of its type on the market (Natural Daylight/Ventilator) that can achieve 60l/sec exhaust at Sydney’s average wind speed to meet the BCA – AS 1668.2 wet area performance requirement of 25l/sec extraction. The unit also has superior stack effect and buoyancy extraction due to its CFD analysed unobstructed flow path.

How it Works-

SkyVent

The SkyVent attic vent allows daylight and ventilation into the attic space helping to reduce condensation and keeping insulation dry and effective. This is achieved by utilising natural wind energy to extract moisture by creating negative pressure from the aerodynamic foil and causing extraction at the rear of the unit. This is a more efficient form of wind extraction than cowling vents. The unit also has improved stack and buoyancy characteristics due to its innovative design. It can operate even when there is no wind, as a solar chimney, unlike a cowl type vent that suffers from throat blockage and restrictions.

The SkyVent works 40% – 100% more efficiently than its competitors as tested by University of Technology, Sydney. University testing results that show that the SkyVent even outperforms a larger 380 mm throat Whirly style vent fitted with a fan!

The smart design also allows continuous air flow, trickle ventilation or no ventilation by simply opening or closing the diffuser – Truly an advanced system with the home owner’s comfort in mind! No wonder the SkyVent has received so much recognition.

Performance

Performance will depend on several factors such as inlet capacity for supply of cooler, denser replacement air and buoyancy / stack effect. Generally for condensation control in an attic space, one or two vents placed towards the ridge of the roof is sufficient. The SkyVent works particularly well with stack effect and acts like a solar chimney. Extraction / exhaust without buoyancy has been measured at 3600 l/min @ 12km/hr (Sydney’s average wind speed). For a bathroom of 3.5m x 2.5m x 2.4m = 20m3., which = 20,000 Litres of air. The SkyVent can achieve 10 Air Changes/ Hour (ACH)
