How Many Vents Do I Need?

The number of felt lap vents can be worked out using the following formula:

Selecting the amount of airflow, then dividing the roof length by the spacing (in meters) indicated below.

Free Flowing Airflow Felt Lap Spacings
Millimetres Meters
5000mm/m ² 600 0.6
10000mm/m ² 300 0.3
15000mm/m ² 120 0.12

For Example:

For a roof that is 7m requires airflow of 10000mm/m ²

7/0.3 = 23.333 or 24 felt lap vents evenly spaced.

For roof spaces that require more than the 15000mm/m ² the spacings half for each additional 5000mm/m ²

Please note these are designed as a remedial solution to roof ventilation and do not meet the standards for permanent roof space ventilation on their own and felt lap vents may adversely affect wind uplift of slates and tiles. For more information, please see our blog on the changes to BS 5534:2014 or see BS 5250 Code of Practice for Control of Condensation in Buildings.

Excellent. Fitting was easy. Too early to see if it's helped the damp in the loft.
