Flettner designs and manufactures wind powered roof ventilators for use in Vans, Trucks, Trailers, Horseboxes and Buses. Flettner is the world leader in commercial vehicle wind powered ventilation and we supply our roof ventilators to over 20 countries.


The product is based on the design of the German engineer Anton Flettner and is still bearing his name. The Flettner rotor’s design utilises the Magnus effect as a means of propulsion. The designs were purchased by Walter Stern in 1931 who founded British Flettner Ventilator Ltd, who then started manufacturing and selling ventilators in London, England. Flettner Ventilator Ltd has been a family-run business since 1931 and now has over 80 years of expertise in delivering wind-driven ventilation.


Flettner vents were fitted to transport vehicles of all kinds over Europe, Australia and South Africa and were originally made of metal. The company continued to thrive and in the late 1970’s driven by improvements in polymer technology, the company switched from steel to plastic for the manufacture of new ventilators and shutters.


With its plastic, more slim-line design, the F2000 could extract air with much less wind-power, making it a cost-effective, efficient and versatile extraction system for Commercial Vans, Trucks, Glider trailers, Trains, Caravans, RVs, Boats and Buildings.


In 2006, the patented Flettner TCX-2 was launched. It is manufactured in high grade plastic, this version was designed with a number of modifications including a powerful extraction system and strengthened spindle design with both a standard and narrow-base to fit on ribbed roofs for similar applications.


Today, Flettner Ventilator Ltd is regarded as the world leader in the design and manufacture of wind powered ventilation products and the company continues to manufacture its products in the UK, selling to over 20 countries. Flettner maintains the same principles it started out with over 80 years ago, to deliver a simple, yet durable air extraction product which can be used for a broad range of applications – truly, a great British manufacturing success story
