New Ventilation System Makes Roofs Breathe Easier

05 May 2005

A Brisbane company has optimised a way to ventilate commercial and industrial buildings without spoiling rooflines. Underwood based roofing products company Eziform Sheet Metal Pty Ltd claims its system improves air circulation while maintaining an effective seal against rainwater intrusion.

Its natural roof ventilation system uses roof flashings and ridge capping the company manufactures from COLORBOND® steel and ZINCALUME® steel manufactured by BlueScope Steel.

The Eziform Sheet Metal system, suitable for virtually any pitched roof, allows stale air otherwise trapped inside buildings to escape via an opening along the roof's ridgeline.

"We have carried out extensive testing and fine tuning of the system to counter rain penetration since we started developing it five years ago," Eziform Sheet Metal Director, Steve Cassidy, said.

"We have now begun a limited release of the ventilation system commercially and the response from customers has been overwhelmingly positive."

Eziform Sheet Metal recently joined the Steel By Brand Partnership Program to reaffirm the company's preference for the quality assurance offered by BlueScope Steel, Australia's leading steel supplier.

"I'm not prepared to risk using steel that does not originate from BlueScope Steel, especially when launching a new product," Steve Cassidy said.

"I have been in this business for 20 years and have seen first hand some of the appalling problems that can arise from the use of lower quality steel that is not supported by a strong guarantee. We also prefer steel from BlueScope Steel to match products already in use by customers, such as roof cladding manufactured from COLORBOND® steel and ZINCALUME® steel."

Eziform Sheet Metal manufactures general roofing accessories such as flashings and other rainwater goods chiefly for commercial and industrial applications.
