The simple yet effective design, coupled with the ultra-reliability of Flettner products make our ventilators suitable for a wide range of ventilation applications.
The fact that our ventilators are totally wind powered make them suitable for use in applications where an external power source is either not always desirable or present. In addition, our ventilators have no running costs or maintenance costs.
With over 80 years of experience of wind powered ventilation product development, Flettner Ventilator can advise you of the suitability of our products for your particular ventilation requirement.
For example, Flettner ventilators have been used to ventilate the passenger carriages of trains for many years providing welcome relief to oppressive heat, particularly in very hot climates.
In the 1980’s Flettner Ventilators were used in the harsh environment of Antarctica by the British Antarctic Survey to ventilate living and sleeping quarters by removing stale air and waste gases from stoves and heating appliances.
In more recent times they have been used to improve the circulation of air in Pigeon lofts , extract heat from workshops which house pottery kilns, remove the build-up of poisonous gases in sewers and prevent damage caused by sea salt-laden air to lifeboat deployment systems on cruise liners.
In fact, where there is a need for cost effective ventilation and there is the possibility of a slight breeze or wind, then Flettner may have an answer.

The ventilators work very well at low speed, we run at around 8 to 10 mph max. They produce a noticeable air flow in through low level louvers and out thru the roof ventilators.
The carriages are totally enclosed as they pass through animal enclosures so it is essential to have plenty of air flow which is why we fitted 4 per carriage. Phil Kent, Alan Keef Ltd.
