Company Profile

Andy’s Sheetmetal is a privately operated family business. The business started with the design, certification and patenting of a roof ventilator that is an essential device for removing hot air in roof spaces. The cyclone rated roof vents that were designed to blend with the roof profile found a ready local market. Within a few years the product was widely installed across Far North Queensland. The custom design process soon led to manufacture and installation for industrial sheds and commercial buildings. Today, the manufacture is mechanised and the staff of 7 can produce up to 150 RV Roof Ventilators per week (goal is 300 per week) and the distribution is Australia wide.

Technologies and Capabilities

Would you like a natural, sustainable and cost-effective way to cool down?

Andy’s Sheetmetal has the answer: The R.V. Roof Ventilator

Did you know that in Cairns and Far North Queensland, trapped heat inside your ceiling space can cause the air temperature to rise up to 80 degrees? If not ventilated correctly, this heat will permeate through your ceiling into your living / working areas, creating an uncomfortable environment for you, your family and employees.

Effective ventilation is essential. So why choose The R.V. Roof Ventilator?:

   •  It is the strongest and most versatile roof vent on the market
   •  It has no moving parts, so there are no squeaks
   •  It’s maintenance free and has no electrical requirements (saving you money)
   •  It has a Structural Engineer Certificate with a wind rating of up to 215km/h
   •  It’s locally designed and manufactured for tropical climates
   •  Best of all, The R.V. Roof Ventilator is custom made to suit all roof types.

Other special features of this innovative new system include:

   •  Special rain deflectors to ensure effective waterproofing
   •  Vermin-proof wire
   •  Blending with your roof, enhancing the appeal of your home, adding value and style
   •  Keeping your home cooler in summer
   •  Skylights and in-line fans are also available.

Company Background

Andy’s Sheetmetal was established in 2003. It is owned and operated by Andrew Langtree and his family and it is underpinned by a commitment to lifestyle and family values.

The business started with the main family members and the product was invented, developed, certified and patented. As product orders grew, the business expanded including investments into mechanised processes.

Andrew now has over 26 years experience in sheet metal product manufacture. Andrew invented the RV Roof Ventilator for local cyclonic conditions in association with a Far North Queensland-based Structural Engineer. The ventilator was installed at a number of locations that were subject to the main wind forces of major recent cyclone events and they performed successfully meeting expectation.
