The Big Problem with Roof Ventilation
Old homes don't have any. New homes need more.
You're making more heat (showers, washing, and central heating).
Your home holds heat better (double glazing, loft insulation, and cavity wall insulation).
And that's a problem because warm air rises into the loft, meets the cold surface of the roof, and condensates.
Over time, untreated loft and bathroom condensation can lead to damp, rot, and mould growth.
Plain Tile Vent - A Multi-Purpose Solution
The Plain Tile Vent is an almost invisible solution with 3 key applications:
🏠 Loft ventilation
💦 Shower fan
🚽 Soil vent pipe
How It Works
There's a grille vent in the top cover with a unit fixed to the back.
Together, they allow air to flow between the roof space and outside.
This is perfect for loft ventilation because it helps to circulate and remove stale air.
Our pipe adaptor makes it easy to connect your bathroom extractor fan - a simple way to exhaust your shower steam.
Any rainwater entering the vent flows out through the bottom, onto the tiles below.
Easy to Install
The Plain Tile Vent is quick and easy to fit.
One unit replaces 3 tiles. No tile or batten cutting is required. The roofing felt needs a diagonal cut for the throat of the ventilator to pass through.
Cut and fold out the felt underlay. Position the tile vent. Nail securely and continue tiling.
We recommend working with a professional roofer.

- The grille also acts as an insect screen and a baffle against wind-driven rain
- Minimum roof pitch - 22.5 degrees
- The 4mm grille allows an airflow capacity of 7,500mm² per unit
- One tile vent at 0.75 metre centres achieves the equivalent of 10,000mm² per linear metre at low level
- One tile vent at 1.50 metre centres achieves the equivalent of 5,000mm² at high level
