This is a verandah first – the team at Creative Outdoors have developed a unique product that will assist in heat removal from your pitched gable verandah or carport. Based on old and industrial technology, we have taken the traditional Ventridge used in a common factory and made it aesthetically pleasing without compromising the performance.
It is working with the simple physics of hot air rising and in South Australia we get some very hot days. Even a mild day will heat up the colorbond iron roof and create radiant heat. With a traditional Gable or pitched verandah this hot air gets trapped on the inside. Ceiling fans are often used to circulate the air but unfortunately when its hot air all the are doing is blowing the hot air down and around and not actually removing the hot air.
We have cleverly created a cavity for this hot air to rise and escape under the ridge. Simple science at its best. It is designed to provide a flow of fresh air without the use of any mechanic support.
There has for a long time had similar solutions by using other products such as whirly birds – these work great but look ugly from underneath. Imagine investing a considerable amount of hard earned money to have an ugly round hole cut into your True Oak corrugated iron and to see this round vent spinning and commonly squeaking in rotation.
The old industrial Ventridge is good in performance but again visual aesthetics are lost. You also lose the ability to have LED downlights through the centre ridge. With the new Creative Heat Vent, you get to obtain lights and fans if you choose in a sealed light tray.
The Creative Heat Vent is designed to keep the visual appearance. It is custom made to length, so it always fits clean. The Creative Heat vent has a slim line finish so it’s not a large unsightly addition to you home. Double sided colorbond is also used to make sure both the underside and top side of your Verandah or carport all matches and blends.
