Cupola Hub

Windtower Roof Ventilation Systems


Roof Ventilation hub

The Condor Cupola is the modern day version of reminiscent residential architecture circa 1940’s where the cupola sat proudly as the jewel on the roofing crown of a gentleman’s residence. Only one centrally located, and considered as an integral part of the construct in reducing the number of roof penetrations otherwise required.

Today the Condor model is a far more efficient unit, fabricated in stainless steel and resin colour coded to roof colour requiring no maintenance.

  • No noise
  • No running costs
  • Maintenance free
  • Optional closure for capture and redirection of internal heat during winter months.
  • Efficient natural heat purging during summer.
  • Saves on a/c cooling costs during summer.
  • Improves a/c performance where installed
  • Available in colorbond colours.
  • Can be employed as transition services hub for bathroom, kitchen exhaust ducted venting.
  • DIY Installation
  • Cyclone rated

Fabricated in Australia to architectural specifications.

Condor architectural products are custom made to project specifications and are not ‘on shelf’ hardware store items

Air flow conversion approach minimises roof penetrations required to service  exhaust fans and the like whilst allowing the roof to aspirate to full advantage.

The service duct is taken to within a 300mm proximity, and directed toward Cupola opening where  pressure will always exhaust  to atmosphere.

Venting of individual rooms with the use of purge vents that can be opened and closed, from trickle to full flow displacement. Each Purge vent vacates into the attic/above ceiling area/void.

Having air volume converge to one central venting location in the roof space assists in continuity of flow and is the most efficient than any of the alternatives.

In a residential situation this principle is far easier to implement as the balance of peripheral ingress to central egress can be easily installed.

The size selection of the services hub is determined by the roof size, pitch and services anticipated.

  • general roof ventilation
  • wet area exhaust
  • specific purpose venting
  • natural displacement (purge vents)
