  Trailer Ventilators

WHY INSTALL MORE TRAILER VENTS or FANS?

It is imperative that horses (and most animals) stay cool and dry when being transported. They need cool airflow and a way to move the hot air away from them. Even in a stock trailer an equine can still overheat if he is nervous, crowded or blanketed. In a enclosed trailer. An animal can asphyxiate from truck fumes or die from heat exhaustion if there isnít a very efficient venting system already in place. You probably already know if you have an venting issue, so donít take a chance.

Read carefully---some of these ventilators are either designed or can only be set to extract heat or hazardous fumes. Some can be set to scoop air into the trailer and some can serve both purposes.

These vents & fans are easily installed by a metal fabricator, and most of the time, can be installed or replaced by a talented amateur.

*Round Base (Black) model is designed to fit flat roofs of trailers or transit vehicles. It requires a 3.86" diameter roof hole and two 5mm drilled holes to install. A template is included, along with written instructions in English, French & Spanish.  Installs flush to a metal roof, but includes an optional spacer that allows for ceilings up to 3/8" thick. For installation in roofs over 3/8" thick, you must purchase an adaptor kit, sold below. An adjustable "shutter" is mounted on the ceiling inside that can adjust the airflow or close the vent. Shutter shown below, shown in the closed position.

 

Narrow Base (White) model is designed to fit flat between the 4" raised "roof ribs" of transit vehicles. It requires an oval hole 3" wide X 3 13/16" long and two 5mm drilled holes to install. A template is included, along with written instructions in English, French & Spanish.  Installs flush to a metal roof, but includes an optional spacer that allows for ceilings up to 3/8" thick. For installation in roofs over 3/8" thick, you must purchase an adaptor kit, sold below. An adjustable "shutter" is mounted on the ceiling inside that can adjust the airflow or close the vent.

Shutter shown below, shown in the closed position. (Same shutter color for both models.)

Tested and approved by TRAIL PALS! In our initial tests, this ventilator lowered the temperature in the horse box of our enclosed horse trailer by 13 degrees--- (these are not verified scientific results). Installed in 10 minutes. All instructions & hole template included. Ships in the original box.

BUT THE BEST REASON TO INSTALL A FLETTNER VENTILATOR is that it is a wonderful GREEN, COMPLETELY QUIET WIND-POWERED vent that operates 24/7 to extract heat, odors, gas & moisture  from your trailer, EVEN WHEN THE TRAILER IS COMPLETELY CLOSED UP!

So, no more having to leave a roof vent open or a window open anymore (no more rain or dust in the trailer). Just park the trailer where it can catch some breeze, lock it up & the ventilator turns non-stop. It is completely quiet, vibration-free, waterproof and needs no maintenance.  LOOKS COOL, TOO!

Now, when we open the back of the trailer after it has been parked awhile, it smells fresh! We have just installed a second FLETTNER VENTILATOR in our trailer tack room  (to rid it of the sour saddle blanket odor) and we are thrilled with the results. The tack room smells fresh, with NO odor at all!

FROM THE OFFICIAL BROCHURE: Incorporating an integral air concentrator and an ultra-efficient centrifugal fan, the Flettner TCX-2 not only leads the way in operational efficiency it is also much simpler to fit that other ventilators Ė cutting installation times by as much as 50%. Moreover, everything is included with the ventilator Ė integral bolt fixing, full fitting instructions and template, gasket and shutter - Nothing more to buy, no messy adhesives and no sourcing of fasteners.

-Extracts hazardous fumes, gases and strong odors-Significantly reduces heat build-up-Minimizes condensation and excess humidity-Helps with the overall comfort of your animals

-The Flettner Ventilator extracts air. Well sealed vehicle compartments require additional air inlets such as grilles to be fitted so that efficiency is not impaired.

*Made in the U.K. Features a Manufacturer's lifetime warranty on workmanship.

The Flettner TCX  Adaptor enables these Flettner ventilators to be fitted to vehicles with double-skinned roofs ranging from 1" to 6" thickness. The plastic adaptor is a tubular shape and acts as a rigid bond between the ventilator's clamp plate and the shutter. Part A (the tube) is cut to the correct length & then bonded to Part B (the ring) with an appropriate structural adhesive. (2-part epoxy not included.)

                        Steel Two-Way Roof Vent , Black    

NEW & IMPROVED for your animal's safety!

 

Two-Way Roof Vent, Steel, powder-coated black (High Profile)

 (Sits higher on the roof when closed, but the operating handle protrudes much less in the trailer)

Two-way vents can be opened either backwards (in case of rain or to vent heat out of the trailer) or forward (to scoop air into the trailer for ventilation). They also shut beautifully & don't leak.

We have upgraded our roof vents and now offer you the best & safest roof vent for equines on the market today! The 3 interior metal blades that were a danger to animals are now eliminated--much safer for your animals, in case of impact.  The interior handle with which to position the vent lid is fastened on much more securely and it is easier to grasp. It has a ergonomic grip -one squeeze of the handle relieves the sealing force for simple opening in either direction. In addition, there is a full-size neoprene gasket in the lid to prevent leaks. The handles protrude only 1 1/2" on the inside of the trailer. The closed lid protrudes  2 5/8" on the exterior when shut, and 4 1/4" when open in either position. Comes with 12 pre-drilled holes for mounting.

We recommend installing one of  the closed-cell gaskets made specifically for this roof vent to prevent leaking. These gaskets also make a great template for cutting a perfect hole in the trailer roof.

We are the only company we know of that offers two sizes of trim ring for this vent--1 1/8" tall for a one-thickness roof or a taller trim at 2 1/4" tall for an insulated roof--both at the same low price.

Dimensions: 7 3/4" wide x 13 3/8" long

Hole Size: 5 3/4" wide x 11 1/4" long (oval shape)

Price (US$):

Two-Way Roof Vent Gasket (for steel or aluminum vents above)

This is a 1/8" thick closed-cell foam gasket. Closed-cell foam means the gasket won't absorb water, so it prevents the two- way roof vent from leaking. Installs between the vent & the trailer roof.

The gasket with adhesive is exactly the same as the gasket without, but has a peel & stick feature on both sides. It uses exactly the correct amount of adhesive and is rigid until the paper is removed. This allows it to be used as a template to cut the correct shaped hole in the roof of the trailer.

We highly recommend that these gaskets be installed with the steel and aluminum two-way roof vents sold above.

Aluminum Two-Way Roof Vent, LOW PROFILE   

NEW & IMPROVED

Two-Way Roof Vent, Aluminum (natural silver color) or aluminum painted WHITE, Low Profile

(Sits lower on the roof when closed, but the operating handle protrudes much lower in the trailer)

Two-way vents can be opened either backwards (in case of rain or to vent heat out of the trailer) or forward (to scoop air into the trailer for ventilation). They also shut beautifully, have a full neoprene gasket in the lid & don't leak.

This LOW PROFILE roof vent can also be placed on the SIDES of all types of trailers, for more ventilation. Remember, they generally operate from the inside, but can be manually closed from the outside.  The handles protrude almost 3" on the inside of the trailer. The closed lid protrudes  3/4" on the exterior when shut, and 2 1/4" when open in either position.

This vent is also designed to replace the roof vents on older horse trailers where the dimensions of the existing hole match better. They are usually placed away from the heads & bodies of horses, such as one vent between the horses' head space and forward in a two horse-straight load trailer.

We have upgraded our roof vents we offer you the best & safest roof vent for equines on the market today!

LOCTITE Superflex RTV Silicone Sealant

USES: Protects leads from mechanical shock, electrical insulation, seal doors, windows, vents, flues,  ductwork; bond trim, signs, name plates.

 

LOCTITE Clear Room Temperature Vucanizing Silicone Adhesive Sealant, 2.7 ounces

This is what we are going to recommend for caulking when installing roof vents. It is 2.7 fluid ounces (80 ml), so you can use it to install one or two vents. Buy this when you don't need a large amount in a caulking gun that will just end up being wasted. Comes with a "cone" applicator that you can clean out & re-use again. WE TESTED IT! The applicator stores separate and the tube has a screw-on cap so the adhesive stays fresh & stores perfectly.

SUPERFLEX is a general purpose, one-part silicone adhesive sealant that cures at room temperature to form a tough rubber seal. Adheres to most surfaces. Formulated to withstand extreme temperature cycling, UV light & ozone.

DIRECTIONS: Surfaces must be clean & dry. Remove all oil & grease. Apply an even 1/16" to 1/4" bead on one surface, surrounding all bolt holes. Remove excess silicone with knife. Assemble parts immediately. Do not squeeze gasket out by over-tightening bolt. Silicone fully cures in 24 hours.
