Lomanco Whirlybird Turbine Ventilator
The turbine design features permanently lubricated upper and lower ball bearings that ensure long life and no maintenance. Other common features of the turbine are its rigid spider-type construction-riveted at every connection and tested to withstand winds of 110 M.P.H.,21 air-foil curved vanes with rolled edges to deflect water, and 100% rust-free all-aluminum construction.
The Whirlybird turbine's large flashing makes installation easy. The Whirlybird turbine's exclusive vari-pitch base adjusts to a 12/12 roof pitch for use on many roof applications. When installed properly, the Whirlybird turbine reduces energy bills and the likelihood of winter ice buildup.
To determine roof pitch, place gauge on peak of roof as shown. Position straight edge as shown. Read roof pitch from printed gauge parallel to bottom of straight edge.
Align roof pitch number on elbow with the indicator line on the base flashing. Place 3 screws through holes that line up with predrilled holes in base.
Locate base opening between rafters and mark hole to be cut. Locate rafters by tapping roof. Cut hole as marked. Seal around entire perimeter of hole with roofing cement.
Slide top half of flashing under shingles. Secure with nails at top, sides and bottom. Rotate top of elbow to level position by turning counterclockwise. Place locking clamp across seam and tighten as shown with included screw.
Seal the adjusting seam and the base/elbow connection seam on inside with roofing cement. Seal locking clamp holes and all exposed nails with roofing cement. Position the Whirlybird turbine head on the base. Line up the predrilled holes in the brackets and elbow and fasten with sheet metal screws.
