Spinning Roof Vents & Skyaxis Wind Driven Ventilators NZ

At Roofquip, we supply Skyaxis wind-driven ventilators across NZ. Skyaxis products are ideal for whatever requirements you have. This includes extracting from your building hot and humid air, condensation, fumes, pollution, odours, stale air, and more.

The operation of our wind-driven ventilators is simple. They are fitted to your roof and are operated by the wind. This means there is no need for wires or any sort of power source. Instead, the wind operation effectively draws the hot, stale, and damp air up and out of the building.

This then brings fresh and clean air into the building from other openings such as doors and windows

As it is the wind as well as the flow of air and heat rising towards the ventilator that makes them spin, wind-driven ventilators cost nothing to run.

They are suitable for any size or type of building too, from small homes to large industrial warehouses.

Quality Skyaxis Construction

The wind-driven ventilators we supply are ideal for NZ weather conditions. Plus there is no requirement for maintenance.

All the Skyaxis ventilators we supply have a high-quality construction that uses a corrosion-resistant aluminium alloy. This makes the ventilator lightweight to ensure maximum spinning efficiency even in light wind conditions.

Skyaxis ventilators also feature self-lubricating stainless-steel axial bearings for long-lasting performance.

Not only that, we have a wide range of sizes and types available to suit the specific requirements of your building, plus the ventilator can be powder coated to match your roof’s colour.

How Skyaxis Ventilators Work:

Skyaxis ventilators work by allowing hot, stale and damp air to be drawn up and out of the building. The removal of this air creates a convection current which draws fresh air back into the building through other openings. Skyaxis ventilators begin to spin due to the heat in a building rising and also the wind running directly past the ventilator on the roof. The simple action of Skyaxis ventilators keeps energy costs down while ventilating any building, from a small home to a large warehouse – all in an eco-friendly manner.
