Detailed Description

Flettner TCX-2

Flettner TCX-2

Flettner TCX-2™ Ventilator

The Flettner TCX-2™  is quite simply the world’s most advanced wind-powered ventilator.

Ideal for glider trailers. This trailer vent was designed for small to medium sized vehicles. It's fitted extensively to animal transportation vehicles and trailers around the world. Flettner has been the main ventilator specified by fleet managers, converters and upfitters for many years.

Originally designed for vans and horse trailers the Flettner TCX-2 is a good sailplane trailer vent option. It extracts more air per cu ft / min than any other vent. The vent is available in both white and black.

With patents and design registrations held in all key global markets, and designed using state-of-the-art computational flow dynamics, the Flettner TCX-2™  has been created to maximise rotational efficiency and torque to produce very powerful extraction rates – almost twice those of the Flettner 2000 making it particularly suited to being fitted to larger vehicles or buildings.

Incorporating an integral air concentrator and an ultra-efficient centrifugal fan the Flettner TCX-2™  not only leads the way in operational efficiency it is also much simpler to fit than other ventilators – cutting installation times by as much as 50%. Moreover, everything is included with the ventilator – integral bolt fixing, full fitting instructions and template, gasket and shutter – Nothing more to buy, no messy adhesives and no sourcing of fixings.

As you would expect from Flettner, their fastidious approach to quality is evident throughout. – from the grades and composition of the plastics used through to the choice of only the highest grades of machined stainless steel in the shaft and bearings. Only Flettner provide a Lifetime Warranty to give you full confidence and peace of mind – with Flettner – you can fit and forget!

The Flettner TCX-2™ is available with two different roof base types, a standard base with a diameter of 145mm or 5.75″ and a narrow base with a diameter of 108mm or 4.25″. Selected the narrow base version if you are intending to fit to a vehicle with a ribbed roof.

For vehicles which have an inner lining, a Flettner TCX-2™  adapter is available to bridge the gap between the outer skin and the inner lining.

Flettner TCX-2 Case Study

“I am thrilled with the positive effect the TCX-2™  roof ventilators have had on the general environment of my horse trailer, when added to the horse & tack compartment.

I have not detected an unpleasant odor in my trailer since the vents were installed! Unlike our existing roof vents, these ventilators are generally left in the open position all year- in rain, sun & snow. In our own un-scientific test, the Flettner ventilator installed in the horse compartment roof lowered the inside temperature by 13 degrees while the trailer was being pulled on a highway in 100 degree heat.

The installation process took 10 minutes. These vents have never leaked, and I did not have to apply any extra caulking or sealant. The Flettner TCX-2™  vents work 24 hours a day to extract heat & odor whether the trailer is moving or not, because they are powered solely by the wind. Even a small breeze is enough to keep them working all the time!

In my opinion, everyone hauling animals in a trailer should consider installing these roof ventilators”.
