The majority of dwellings and industrial buildings do not have adequate and effective ventilation.
The WINDWORKER has proven suitable in ventilating any building with any type of roof cladding and works extremely well for both large and small roof spaces.
Usually one WINDWORKER is sufficient for the average sized home however more than one may be necessary for larger or irregular shaped dwellings and home units. As a guideline one Windworker is adequate for a home of 14 squares.
The use of a WINDWORKER is not restricted to buildings in warmer climates as ventilation is necessary to facilitate a desired and healthy environment in Winter months and colder regions.
Internal pressure release in buildings during hurricanes, cyclones, storms and excessive winds.
The primary function of the WINDWORKER was to reduce the built-up pressure from within the interior of structures in the event of cyclones, hurricanes and destructive storms as a means of assisting the prevention of loss of roof cladding from buildings.
Throughout the world these winds cause millions of dollars in damage.
The WINDWORKER is best described in these circumstances as being a damage prevention device and security measure.
It has a 100% success rate in 26 cyclones and 2 hurricanes to 2005 without damage to either product or buildings.
- Heat reduction and continuous cool air insulation
To obtain a cooling effect, air movement must be generated.
On installation, the WINDWORKER immediately begins ventilating the area under roof space including rooms fitted with internal vents by sucking out the heated air and replacing it with cooler, fresher air.
As this air transfer process is continuous 24 hours per day, every day, through suction and convection, a cool air insulation is registered between roof and ceiling causing the temperature within the ceiling cavity to reduce substantially. Tests have shown that by POSITIVE VENTILATION the internal temperature in both ceiling space and rooms will reduce to external shaded ambient levels, that being the coolest possible temperature without refrigeration.

On / Off Vent
During colder periods, internal vents can be closed to prevent the air flow although experience has shown that under these circumstances the air movement can create a friction which tends to break the chill.
- Withdrawal of unpleasant odours, staleness, condensation and potential toxic fumes.
Promotion of quality indoor air and prevention of sick building syndrome.
Because of the continuous extraction process associated with the WINDWORKER, odours and fumes are exhausted and eliminated. These are desirous factors in creating a healthy home and work environment.
The withdrawal of condensation from bathrooms and steam from cooking can assist in the prevention of mildew and wood rot.
Air movement created by the WINDWORKER will effectively dry fibrous cement roof cladding and metal ceiling battens that can carry or retain moisture which can cause mould.
The installation of an internal vent above the cooking area permits odours, steam and smoke to be drawn through and exhausted to atmosphere by the WINDWORKER.
Within the dwelling and workplace potential toxic compound and fumes are exposed to people every day.
A WINDWORKER ventilator will assist in the reduction of these potential dangers and let your buildings breathe.
Being totally powered by the wind and taking advantage of varied air currents the WINDWORKER does not require electricity or gas to function.
Energy awareness and conservation through the reduced usage of cooling and extractor devices leads to financial savings with the WINDWORKER.
A WINDWORKER can assist in the prevention of loss by fire by withdrawing heat and gases preventing combustion and conduction where metal structure work has been incorporated.
Should fire occur, whilst acknowledging that oxygen air flow would accelerate the burning, preliminary gases and smoke hazardous to human life causing asphyxiation, can be withdrawn.
The WINDWORKER has been also used on chimneys, water reservoirs and sewage wells together with specific applications.
