What ventilation systems can I use for my roof?

When carrying out work activities in an industrial building, good environmental conditions are key to maintaining an adequate temperature in the working environment. Therefore, in this article we focus on ventilation systems, which renew the air to cool the space.

It is not only important to renew the temperature, but also to take into account other conditions for the installation of ventilation systems, such as the evacuation of heat and fumes produced by industrial activities, renewing stale air, eliminating humidity and condensation and regulating temperatures.

Ventilation Systems

Prior to the installation of any ventilation system, it is fundamental to have knowledge of the volume of the warehouse where it is going to be located, the activity that is carried out and the existing balance between the air inflow and outflow.

Among the available options, we can find different types of aerators that adapt to the solution you want for your project: static ventilation and dynamic ventilation, that is, those equipped with a motor.

Static Fan

Static fans are based on a continuous natural ventilation that does not require energy consumption. These static aeration systems can be both punctual and linear, depending on their distribution in the installation area.

Punctual Ventilation

As the name suggests, these fans are installed individually and punctually on the roof. One of its advantages is its simple assembly without needing to stop activity in the warehouse. Among the most used punctual ventilation systems are the Venturi Aerator and the Rotating Cap.

The Venturi Aerator is a ventilation system that operates using the Venturi Principle. Thanks to its design and the internal components that compose it, it manages to generate a constant aspiration of the interior air effectively.

The Rotating Cap is a ventilation system widely used on roofs, as, despite being static, the force of the wind transforms it into dynamic. It takes advantage of the outside breeze and the pressure disparity between the inside and outside of the warehouse. The Rotating Cap consists of three essential elements: turbines, neck and base.

The turbines of the Rotating Cap rotate in one direction, regardless of the force or direction of the wind. However, for its correct operation, it is crucial to know the average wind speed in the area where you want to install. In this way, its effectiveness based on wind force is ensured.

Linear Fan

This system is widely preferred in farms and recent constructionsdue to its simple installation, as it can be adapted to any type of roof. It is placed as a two-water ridge, with dimensions larger than the Rotating Cap.

Dynamic Fan

The main difference between static and dynamic ventilation lies in the latter having a motor, which allows, regardless of the force of the wind, the ventilation system to constantly expel the fumes generated inside the warehouse. Therefore, its implementation is advised in spaces where the presence of gases and fumes generated internally can represent a risk for workers.

Advantages of Ventilation Systems

By placing a ventilation system, either static or dynamic, on your roof, you will obtain a series of additional benefits, apart from improving the environment inside your warehouse.

The static ventilation system does not require energy consumption and its maintenance is minimal, since, as we mentioned before, it operates thanks to the force of the wind. In addition, it has excellent extraction capacity that operates twenty-four hours a day.

Both static and dynamic systems are extremely quiet, water-resistant and adapt without problems to any type of roof. In addition, its installation is quick and does not require complicated works.

Where can I install the Ventilation Systems?

The ventilation systems that we have mentioned are specifically designed for installation on roofs, although there are also models available for facades. In this article, we have highlighted their application in industrial buildings, where they play a crucial role in the extraction and renewal of air. However, it is important to note that their use is also very common in residential projects, as they represent an ideal solution for the ventilation of windowless bathrooms and for kitchen extractor hoods.

Although the installation of these ventilation systems is relatively simple, at Panel Sandwich Group we strongly recommend having the assistance of a professional for their assembly. An incorrect installation could result in unwanted water leaks. Additionally, it is advisable to carry out regular maintenance, especially in systems that include a motor, as over time residues and dirt derived from fumes can accumulate.


In this installment, we have highlighted the relevance of ventilation systems in your industrial warehouse. If you wish to obtain more information about these or other materials, we recommend that you contact our team of sales representatives, who will provide you with personalized advice to find the most suitable Panel Sandwich for your requirements at the best price.
