Product Overview

The Aura Gravity Roof Ventilator removes heat from the attic in the summer and in the winter. This allows for year-round ventilation. It functions like a spinning roof turbine but without any moving parts. Aura Gravity Ventilators rely on the Venturi Effect when wind blows against the outer louvers. As a result, this creates an upward draft allowing air to freely flow in and out of the vent. Even the smallest breeze can create exhaust ventilation so that air is drawn out of the gravity vent. This movement of air is proportional to the wind speed and is measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM). The Aura Gravity Ventilator also ventilates the roof through “The Stack Effect”. This is when hot air naturally rises out through the roof vents. The 12 inch Aura Gravity Ventilator is 12 inches in diameter and has a 2 inch tall collar. The model number is AV-12-C2 and has 113 inches of Net Free Area (NFA). All 12 inch gravity ventilators come with a standard 18″ x 18″ square flange. This gravity vent is powder coated Grey (Weatherwood) to match grey roofs.
  • Inner vertical louvers keeps insects, birds and squirrels from entering the vent allowing optimal air flow and no maintenance
  • Use on pitched roofs ranging between 3/12 and 12/12
  • Round aerodynamic design can with stand harsh weather and wind forces of up to 200 mph
  • Vent head is removable for easy installation
  • Noiseless - does not require electricity to exhaust air from attics spaces
  • Weatherwood semi-gloss powder coating finish is significantly greater at resisting scratching, chipping, and oxidation
  • Helps to reduce energy costs
  • 5-year warranty

I live in NM and had to deal with high winds ripping the regular turbines off my roof. I've had these on for a couple of years and haven't had any problems at all. They are sturdy, easy to attach,...probably didn't take five minutes to put one on. Took longer to get my ladder up and get on the roof than to replace the existing turbine and put the new ventilator on. I don't have to worry about putting covers on those spinning turbines anymore in the fall in preparation for blizzards and more high winds. If you've ever had to get on your roof and replace one of those regular turbines or had to cover up the hole after the wind blew it off in the middle of a rain storm or blizzard, then you might appreciate one of these. We've had wind gusts up to seventy miles an hour and they're solidly attached.

This turbine retrofit vent works fine, but the description of the item said the paint was "Powder Coated" on aluminum, but the one that I received from my purchase DID NOT have "Powdered Coated" paint as it was advertised. The paint was very easy to come off even I pre-drilled the holes on the collar of the vent before I placed the screws to secure the vent onto the turbine base. There was no "Powdered Coated" paint on the entire unit - they simply sprayed the paint onto the smooth aluminum surface without roughing the surface before they painted the unit which is a very poor manufacture practice. Painting aluminum without roughing the surface will allow the paint to peel of very easily from my experience. I called Active Ventilation about this issue with the pictures taken from the installation, and they told me that they would warranty the paint for up to five years. However, with the changes in the weather being hot and cold in Texas, I don't think the paint will last. I am very disappointed to see the way the manufacturer painted this unit. See the attached pictures for more details.

    I purchased qty-2 of these to replace a couple of roof turbines that were damaged during Hurricane Irma. Living in South Florida, I really should have removed the turbines and capped them off when the storm was imminent, but didn't. As a result, one roof turbine was blown off. The other was damaged. Looking to avoid such issues going forward, I sought a solution where there were no moving parts, protection from rain and critters. After reading the reviews on this product, it seemed worth trying, especially with Home Depot's easy return policy waiting in the wings. Little to lose. They arrived undamaged and surprisingly very well built. Strong inner mounting area that slide perfectly over my existing 12" riser (for lack of better words). The outer portion of the unit that extends away from the mounting area is equally well built. The inner portion uses tightly formed slots for better protection. Each unit ordered arrived with self-tapping color-matched screws and installation directions (though I decided to use my own larger screws for greater strength). I've yet to go into the attic to see if there's any difference in temperature (cooler) as other reviews have stated, but I'm optimistic. Installing took literally 3 minutes per unit. While mounted on their bases, I drilled 3 small holes (smaller than the screws being used) in a triangle pattern about the bases of the units to serve as tapping holes, and then installed the screws. Super tight fit. They look much better than my previous weather beaten damaged roof turbines (pictured) and match my brown house very nicely.

      It Would not fit the base of the 12inch turbine vent it replaced. Ended up destroying my base that was installed less than a year ago. Now I have to buy a new turbine bent to get a base?? Probably throw both away and go a different route.
