If you starve your roof of the correct ventilation then moisture can form in the way of condensation which can cause damp in you roof. To avoid this, ventilation should be fitted. Building regulations have changed several times to allow for continuous ventilation at eaves level. The amount of ventilation required is dependent upon your roof type and pitch. Typically ventilation equivalent to a 10mm continuous air gap is sufficient for most modern pitched roof properties.
We also have an ‘Over Fascia Ventilator‘ that provides the equivalent of a 20mm continuous air gap, this product is normally suited to flat roofs and shallow pitched roofs that require more ventilation.
Our Over Fascia Ventilator offers a discrete but effective solution to the unsightly vents that you see in the majority of houses today. Most traditional properties have had soffit ventilation grills or discs fitted (see image on the right), unfortunately this method of ventilating the roof is not as efficient as our Over Fascia Ventilation system and in most cases soffit ventilation can look unsightly in this highly visible area of the roofline.
The ‘Over Fascia Ventilation’ system sits on top of the fascia and is hidden from the eye. This is generally fitted as standard to every fascia board that we install.
Eaves protection Installation
Fitting over fascia ventilator
Over Fascia Ventilator
Designed with a smooth leading edge to be fitted on the top of the fascia board, the slimline over fascia ventilator discreetly ensures a positive passage of airflow into the roof space between the felt and fascia board making it ideal for new build and renovation situations.
Circular Soffit Ventilator
The Circular Soffit Vent is designed to be fitted to the soffit board prior to installation for new build situations.
It can also be easily retro-fitted into existing soffit boards. Standard fixing for this product is a simple push twist action into a 70mm hole drilled in the soffit board. The airflow passage consists of evenly spaced slots specifically sized to prohibit large insects gaining access but wide enough not to be blocked by debris, paint or water droplets.
Continuous Soffit Ventilator
Continuous Soffit Ventilators are designed to provide the solution to roof ventilation where a traditional fascia board detail is specified.
Manufactured in UPVC section, it is screwed onto the fascia and securely supports the soffit board which is inserted into the self retaining mouth. The airflow passage consists of evenly spaced slots specifically sized to prohibit large insects gaining access, but wide enough not to be blocked by debris.
Continuous Roll Panel
The Continuous Roll Panel Eaves Ventilator provides a simple and economical solution to the problems of eaves ventilation. Suitable for 400mm, 450mm and 600mm raft centres, the panel has vertical strengthening ribs and is suitable for new build situations.
Its flexibility makes it suitable for refurbishment where rafter centres are not consistent or unknown.
Eaves Protection Boards
Our Eaves protection system prevents felt sagging at eaves level and subsequent pooling of water. It is simple to fit in new build or refurbishment situations and eliminates the need to strip a large section of the roof to replace old felt.
Our product is suitable for use with many roof coverings, including breather membranes. The protection boards should be positioned on top of the fascia boards and secured to the roof trusses, overlapped by minimum of 150mm. It should be pushed under existing felt in refurbishment situations or in new build situations felt should be dressed over the tray.
Alternative Eaves Protection Boards
These Eaves Protection Boards prevents roofing felt sagging at the eaves, where water could collect and cause the felt to rot.
Designed with a smooth leading edge to fit on the top of the fascia board, the slimline over fascia ventilator discreetly ensures a positive passage of airflow into the roof space between the felt and the fascia board making it ideal for new build and re-roofing situations. The tray will fit any rafter centres and provides support for the roofing felt, eliminating the problem of rotting felt by stopping it sagging and retaining water at the eaves.
Cross Flow Eaves Panel
The Cross Flow Eaves Panel comprises rigid vacuum formed trays designed to provide an air passage between the roof felt and loft insulation to enable ventilation of the roof space. Sizes are available to encompass the majority of rafter centres. Our product provides a range of rigid, flat pack, vacuum formed panels designed for an easy fix for open eaves or cottage style eaves. The panels include a 4mm fly screen.
Cross Flow Fly Screen Eaves Panel
Our range of Cross Flow Fly Screen Eaves Panels have the addition of a series of evenly punched holes and slots specifically designed to prohibit the entrance of large insects but wide enough not to be blocked by debris, paint or water droplets. These panels are ideally suited to open eaves and cottage style eave details.
Refurbishment Eaves Panel Ventilator
Our Refurbishment Eaves Ventilator Panels are designed to be used in refurbishment situations and are fitted from within the roof space.
Their flexibility allows them to fold to accommodate various roof pitches. By tucking the insulation well into the fold of the ventilator maximum airflow is achieved.
