The Mackridge can be designed to fit at sites along the ridge or joined together to form continuous runs. It is a natural exhaust ventilator to provide natural ventilation, extracting steal, warm of contaminated air.
All units are custom-made, with options including shut-off dampers, bird guards together with fire and smoke release capabilities.

Application of a ridge roof ventilator
Ridge roof ventilators provide a means of exhaust for extraction of warm, stale or contaminated air from a building by being placed in the optimal position for extraction of air at the highest point of a factory, warehouse or distillery.
This is usually the apex of the roof, pulling out the hot air as it rises. We have designed the Mackridge SV natural roof ridge ventilator specifically for mounting along the ridge-line of a building, utilising the apex. It can be manufactured in single unit or continuous form, to suit any pitch of roof and can be fixed to any type of sheeted or decked roof.
The relative position of the roof ridge ventilator along the apex maintains the longitudinal symmetry of the building appearance, unlike many other types of natural ventilators. The ventilators are offered in a range of materials and colours to colour match or contrast with the roof claddings. Each Ventilator is custom made to suit individual requirements.
Design and Installation Flexibility
With such a wide range of throat opening widths and lengths, together with the option of employing either individual units or full ridges, design and installation options are endless.
Available in a wide range of standard throat widths from 152mm to 305mm, Mackridge SV ventilators are made-to-measure in lengths and configurations to suit your requirements.
