Olinc Products & Products Ltd is the leading supplier and installer of the roof ventilator fans in Kenya.

Roof ventilators, also known as roof vents or attic ventilators, are devices installed on the roof of a building to facilitate proper ventilation and air circulation within the attic or roof space. Their primary purpose is to regulate temperature, reduce moisture buildup, and enhance overall indoor air quality

Types of Roof ventilators

 1. Ridge Vents: These are installed along the ridge line of the roof. Ridge vents allow hot air to escape from the attic space, promoting natural convection and cooling.

2. Static Vents: These are non-mechanical vents that provide a passage for air to exit the attic. They come in various shapes and sizes, such as roof louvers or turbines.

3. Powered (Mechanical) Vents: These vents use motors or fans to actively expel hot air from the attic. Common types include roof-mounted exhaust fans or solar-powered ventilators.

4. Gable Vents: Installed in the gable ends of the attic, these vents allow air to flow in and out, promoting cross-ventilation.

Functions and Benefits of Roof ventilators in Kenya

  1. Temperature Regulation: Roof ventilators help regulate temperatures in the attic by allowing hot air to escape during warm weather, preventing heat buildup that can lead to damage to roofing materials and increased energy costs.

  2. Moisture Control: Proper ventilation helps prevent condensation and moisture buildup in the attic, reducing the risk of mold growth, wood rot, and other structural issues.

  3. Energy Efficiency: By reducing the temperature in the attic space, roof ventilators can contribute to lower cooling costs, especially in warmer climates.

  4. Improved Indoor Air Quality: Adequate ventilation prevents the accumulation of pollutants and stale air in the attic, contributing to better indoor air quality.

Installation and Placement:

The effectiveness of roof ventilators depends on proper installation and placement. It’s essential to consider factors such as the size of the attic, the type of roofing material, and the local climate.


Regular maintenance is crucial to ensure the continued effectiveness of roof ventilators. This may include cleaning debris, checking for damage, and ensuring that mechanical components (if present) are functioning correctly.
