The Flettner TCX-2 is one of the most advanced wind-powered ventilators in the world. All Flettner Vents are manufactured in the UK.
Flettner have patents and design registrations for the TCX-2 held in all key global markets. What they are protecting is their design. That design uses computational flow dynamics, this means the Flettner TCX-2 has been created to maximise rotational efficiency and torque to produce very powerful extraction rates, almost twice those of the Flettner 2000. This makes the Flettner TCX-2 particularly well suited to being fitted to larger vehicles.
While it is an ideal choice for larger vehicles, the TCX-2 is not so good for small vans or car derived vans.
Inside the TCX-2 ventilator there is an integral air concentrator and an ultra-efficient centrifugal fan. This makes the Flettner TCX-2 more efficient. It is also much simpler to fit that other ventilators, cutting installation times by as much as 50%. Everything that you need is included with the ventilator; integral bolt fixing, full fitting instructions and template, gasket and shutter.
As you would expect from Flettner, the emphasis is on quality, from the grades and composition of the plastics used through to the choice of only the highest grades of machined stainless steel in the shaft and bearings.
There are two types of TCX-2, a narrow 75mm fitting (which is what this is) and a TCX-2 Standard Wind Driven Air Vent, which has a 98mm fitting. The narrow fitting vent is particularly suited to vans that have ridged roofs.
There are two colour choices black (which is what this one is) and white.
For double skinned roofs the Flettner TCX-2 Adapter is available. Lifetime warranty (register with Flettner after purchase).
