Solar Roof Vents

As roof plumbers we are frequently asked to recommend a roof ventilator.

One of our personal favourites is the Solatube Solar Roof Vent.

It has much to recommend it:

Features include:

  • Unobtrusive, sleek slimline roof profile
  • Brush-less motor (so it won’t wear out)
  • Whisper quiet motor
  • Leak proof seamless one-piece flashing
  • Lightweight polymeric fan blade minimizes motor resistance and is non-corrosive
  • Stainless steel mounting screens
  • Non-corrosive and durable polymeric integral exhaust screen.

Solar Roof Vent MelbourneSolatube solar roof vents come in a couple of roof mount models to suit various pitched roof types with varying roof cavity spaces.

The Solar Star RM1200 roof ventilator is Solatube’s classic model suitable for low slope roofs with a smaller area.

The Solar Star RM1600 roof ventilator is a more robust solar roof ventilator designed to accommodate even the most expansive of roof spaces. For example: steep sloped roofs with a smaller cavity area, steep sloped roofs with a larger cavity area or low sloped roofs with a large cavity area.


The benefit of being a solar operated roof ventilator is that it will operate even when it isn’t windy – summer or winter.

Why would you want to circulate the air in winter?

Roof cavities should be ventilated year round. During winter, proper ventilation helps prevent condensation from forming within the roof cavity and therefore eliminating the potential for your insulation to become damp with condensation run off.

Obviously in summer, the idea is to remove the build up of warm air from the space and therefore help keep your home a little cooler.

There are lots of add-on features as well to further enhance the Solatube solar roof vent.

What Our Customers Have To Say:

Please pass our thanks on to Kim, Joel, Rory, Charlie and anyone else who worked on the roof. We are delighted with the result.
Thanks also to you and Tracey for dealing with all my calls and emails.

Thanks for your follow-up phone call.  David and I actually wanted to thank the Roofrite team for their professionalism and great work.  From the moment Kim punctually arrived at our home, he instilled a huge amount of confidence in us.  This was followed up by continued professional and courteous communication from you and Tracey, and then, Jamie, Dale and the guys also came out exactly as organised.  They were really proficient, they cared about cleanliness, they were friendly and they did a great job.  They cared about the finer details and they finished up everything so that it looks terrific and works perfectly.
David and I wish to thank the entire Roofrite team for a great job.
I have been most impressed with the professional and efficient way in which the installation of the Velux skylight has been managed with minimum disruption to the household.
The skylight looks great, gives a much clearer source of light to our ensuite as well as providing for greater insulation from the heat in summer and cold in winter.
