Vent located on the ridge of the roof plays a key role in the ventilation system of the stable. As the name says, it is a component on the top of the roof ridge. Ridge vent brings not only light into the building, it also provides air circulation in the stable. We offer these types of ridge vents:
1. RIDGE VENTS WITHOUT AIR FLOW CONTROL
The standard and most widespread version of ridge vent is a laminated plastic vent without a damper. This variant can be installed onto openings with maximum width of 1,500 mm. Openings wider than 1,500 mm require a ridge vent with a self-supporting laminated plastic arch. These versions can be installed onto openings up to 4,500 mm wide. The vent is made of hot-dip galvanised steel and is fastened onto wooden or steel components. The top arch is most commonly made of laminated plastic or polycarbonate and the venthole is not closed off by a damper.
- Vent with smooth flat laminated plastic (for sizes 400-1500 mm)
- Vent with self-supporting arch (for sizes 1,500-4,500 mm)
- Vent made of flat polycarbonate (for sizes 500-4,500 mm)
- Vent without top arch (for sizes 400-800 mm)
- Ridge vent on a skillion roof (can be covered
by roll-up canvas or polycarbonate screen)
This variant of ridge vent is installed onto stables for cattle, horses, sheep or goats, but also onto waiting halls in milking parlours, onto water treatment plants or warehouses.
2. RIDGE VENTS WITH AIR FLOW CONTROL
RIDGE VENTS WITH DAMPER
A double-leaf ridge went is an innovated version of the previous vent without damper. Dampers can be used to completely or partially control the air flow. This solution is used, for instance, in stables, waiting halls and milking parlours. They also suitable for composting plants. The body of the vent is made of aluminium, with the dampers controlled by an electric motor. In order to achieve the best insulation possible, we recommend choosing a ridge vent made of polycarbonate, which provides better thermal insulation.
This solution is used, for instance, in stables, waiting halls and milking parlours.
DOUBLE-LEAF RIDGE VENTS CONTROLLED BY AN ELECTRIC DRIVE
Double-leaf ridge vents controlled by an electric drive have become an ever more popular choice in recent years among dairy cattle breeders. The electric drive of the vent can be controlled by a button, and the system can be interconnected with our Haze weather station along with back-up power supply. The double-leaf ridge vent consists of the vent itself, vent leaves, vent lifting mechanism and an electric drive. The vent leaves for stables are line with canvas, while polycarbonate panelling is a better choice for milking parlours and waiting halls. The width of the opening is usually between 1,000 and 1,800 mm.
This type of ridge vent we install into milking parlours and industrial buildings.

3. SHEET METAL PLATING OF VENTS AND BASES
As an addition to the ridge vent, the sheet metal plating can be supplied. It prevents water from leaking into the stable in poor weather conditions. This addition should always be included if the roof pitch is less than 16°. The sheet metal plating is made from galvanised steel sheets (a seal alternatively be added) or Lindab steel sheets.
The types of sheet metal plating
- with sealing profile
- in a selection of RAL colours
- without sealing profile
