During the changes of seasons, the roof must prove itself anew every day. The roof is exposed to frost, UV radiation, precipitation and wind which demands a ventilation concept that responds reliably to these external conditions. Ventilation of the roof is of fundamental importance and serves in the prevention of moss growth and wood rot it also protects the roof from overheating. A controlled flow of air between the roof components carries moisture away from the roof. This moisture occurs due to weather influences on one hand and activities in the house such as showering, washing or cooking by its occupants. Thanks to original accessories, every CREATON roof is ventilated at its sensitive points. Most importantly, the ridge is situated in a particularly exposed position.
The perfect clay roof tile ventilation system is called FIRSTFIX. It includes ridge tiles, ridge connection ventilating tiles, ridge end plates and the special CREATON FIRSTFIX fastening system. Ridge connection ventilating tiles allow controlled air circulation that removes moisture from the roof component of the building. This ensures that the clay roof tiles retain their physical properties for many years and the roof requires little maintenance thanks to proper ventilation. The ridge connection ventilating tile developed by CREATON is therefore the optimum solution for a technically correct ridge closure of the roof. It reliably and permanently withstands any weather, whether snow, rain, heat, cold, UV rays, dust or dirt and requires little maintenance. In complete contrast to mortared ridge designs or plastic solutions, the CREATON ridge connection ventilating tile is reliable for the entire life of the roof. Thanks to the full ceramic solution with clay roof tiles, the original accessories impress with dimensional stability and colour-fastness, increasing the value of the roof.
In addition, the ventilation of clay tile and concrete tile roofs can be promoted by special clay ventilation tiles and concrete ventilation tiles that are simply incorporated into the roof covering. Thanks to their special shape they allow fresh air to flow from below and moves upwards thus removing moisture at the ridge.
CREATON original accessories for roof ventilation are essentially the right choice. After all, sophisticated, functional roof ventilation has many benefits. Ventilation ensures:
