Rising EnEV insulation requirements make special living space ventilation concepts increasingly important. Ventilation concepts are becoming a fundamental component of new construction projects in particular, but also in renovation projects. Their role is to allow air and moisture to escape from the building interior; sanitary facilities or kitchens, for example. For a ventilation concept also to work, innovative roof penetrations, such as those provided with CREATON ventilation systems, are required. DIN 1986-100 has regulated the new requirements for sanitary ventilation, among others, since September 2016. This stipulates, for example, that sanitary ventilation must have an upper closure or cover. However, all outlet vents that direct exhaust air from a fan to the exterior must be fitted with covers. There are also systems for kitchen ventilation in the CREATON product range.
CREATON has therefore developed the SIGNUM clay outlet vent system for clay roof tile assemblies. It is very easily installed with or without a cover using a universal adapter that depends on the type of outlet vent and guarantees absolute rain resistance with perfect ventilation. Whether or not a cover is required depends on whether a fan is mounted under the roof or if passive ventilation is used. In contrast to inexpensive plastic outlet vent systems, the full-ceramic SIGNUM original accessories impress with their durability, colour-fastness and refined appearance. They will not impair the overall appearance of the roof, even after many years.
With their practical sub-roof adapter, including flexible hose connection, SIGNUM outlet vent elements are the convenient solution for watertight roof penetrations. The adapter is simply screwed into the penetration and fixed with the sealing ring – without any gluing. The rubber sleeve is connected to the upper sealing ring, thus guaranteeing a reliable watertight connection. Furthermore, the connection system is suitable for all sub-roof membranes and a diameter of up to approx. 200 mm. Also included in the package: a template for even more convenience and certainty during installation.
There are also CREATON matching accessories for concrete roof tile assemblies. The outlet vent elements consist of PVC base plates that incorporate pipe outlets in various diameters. Thus, all types of fumes escape upwards and the roof remains reliably tight.
