The Small Product That Does a Big Job
A tradesman’s van can accumulate any number of things that over time can contribute to stale air, bad odors or worse, gas build up. Unfortunately, a van roof vent is often an overlooked accessory that does a big job of keeping tradesmen potentially safe and their vans more comfortable.
A van roof vent is a simple device; it uses wind power from outside the vehicle to pull air from inside a vehicle to improve ventilation. Mounted on the roof of a cargo van, it requires no wiring or power. It’s easy to install and can last for years with few moving parts. The vent can circulate air when the vehicle is moving or while it’s sitting still.
A roof vent for vans helps to:
Extract fumes, gases and stale air from vans as this is critical for driver and passenger health, comfort and safety. This is especially important for any cargo vans that carry gas cylinders, flammable liquids or chemicals.
Minimize condensation by removing damp air before it can condense on surfaces. This is important in situations where vans are often parked, or where wet clothing and equipment have to be stored in the vehicle. In this case, the installation of a van roof vent can significantly reduce the damage to equipment and protect the van’s interior from mold growth.
Reduce excessive heat so that the temperature inside the van is more comfortable for the occupants, offers better protection for sensitive equipment and can help conserve perishable goods.
Conform to safety regulations – Fleet operators and commercial vehicle owners increasingly have to comply with state and municipal regulations concerning the transportation of dangerous goods and hazardous materials, while providing workplace protection of their employees.
