Roof exhaust fans remove hot or contaminated air from a  building to create a safer, more comfortable environment inside. You'll find them in various commercial and industrial applications, including schools, medical centers, restaurant kitchens, warehouses, and manufacturing facilities.

When choosing a roof ventilation fan, you have to consider what type of space you're ventilating (whether it's important to remove hot air and humidity, fumes, vapors, contaminants, or general ventilation) and how large the space is. In a commercial kitchen, for example, upblast exhaust fans, most commonly seen as range hood exhaust fans, are essential to remove smoke, grease, and odors; downblast fans can be used in other applications for basic ventilation. Heavy duty belt drive roof fans are good for large volumes of air and high static pressure, while direct drive fans are better for lower volumes and lower pressure.

Noise is another consideration. In a manufacturing plant, you can have a noisier roof fan since the machines are already loud. In a classroom or a hotel room, for example, you'll want to choose something quieter. Dig into the details of the many roof mount exhaust fans we have available, and find the ideal unit for your building.

About Our


Roof Fans

Every roof fan listing comes with a lot of information, including options. Some fans have optional or required accessories or considerations, and we want to make sure you're aware of that. If something is required, you'll be asked to add it to your cart or confirm you already have it. This is just one of many ways NorthStock works to ensure you're happy about your purchase. We also double-check before shipping your order, and we'll contact you to confirm anything that doesn't seem quite right.

Our extensive (and ever-growing) stock of products allows us to ship your order quickly, usually within a day. In the lower 48 states, it will be delivered for free; faster shipping options for many items are available at checkout.
