An efficient roof ventilation system for industrial, commercial and any other workplace is essential. The importance of ventilation is often under-estimated in workplaces, as it plays a critical role in maintaining air quality, regulating temperature and improving comfort and productivity. Commercial buildings and businesses such as warehouses, manufacturers, storage facilities, gyms and indoor pools with high levels of activity require high-quality industrial roof ventilation.

Cheap options such as whirlybirds offer ineffective roof ventilation for industrial circumstances because they are simply not powerful enough.


What are industrial exhaust fans used for?

Heat extraction


Hot Australian summers are often felt most keenly in larger, warehouse-style buildings. Heat build-up impacts the productivity and comfort of workers and puts the stock at risk of damage

Moisture extraction

During cooler seasons it’s often easy to overlook ventilation because indoor spaces aren’t hot and uncomfortable. However, cold and wet conditions are breeding grounds for condensation and mould which can be a threat to the health and safety of workers and stock.

Moisture extraction can be especially important in swimming and spa facilities to help prevent mould and algae growth.

Fume extraction

Roof ventilation systems for industrial businesses can be particularly important because business activities like welding can generate toxic fumes

Improves air quality

Industrial roof ventilation removes the hot, moist and potentially polluted air from indoors and replaces it with the drier, fresher and ambient air from outside. This ensures better inside air quality which helps to maintain workers’ health and safety. Removing contaminants is so important that it could be considered the ‘first line of defence against sickness’.
