TileIntake® invisible and functional

Turbine installation

The Lomanco® TileIntake® IV-9 vent provides proper and functional intake of your attic space for tile roofs. The unique design and installation method insures complete invisibility. The IV-9 works on all tile roofs with use of a batten system.


The TileIntake® vent has excellent airflow design with superior weather protection and no filter to clog. Each vent features interlocking self alignment designs with weatherproof over lapping joints. The TileIntake® can be used with any exhaust vent that provides the proper amount of NFA for a balanced ventilation system. If possible, Lomanco recommends using the TileRidge® exhaust vent with the TileIntake® intake vent for a complete Tile Roof Ventilation system.


The TileIntake® vent is installed underneath the tiles and gets outside make-up air from the airspace between the roof tiles and the roof decking. A constant air supply is provided to this space from the permeability of the tile roof itself. The Tile Roof Institute states, “Natural air ventilation under the tile creates a heat transfer barrier that can provide the benefit of a cooler house in the summer and a warmer house in the winter.” The Lomanco® TileIntake® not only utilizes this natural air ventilation, but will also increase the circulation of the air in the batten space. This will influence the dispersion of moisture and energy performance of the roof.
