Maestro BAL powered by Air iQ

Ventilation just got smarter! 

Maestro BAL now features Bradford Ventilation's new smart ventilation technology- Air iQ!

Maestro BAL is set to a powerful fixed speed for continuous, high performance ventilation. It also includes a built-in Air iQ smart box that can automatically detect heat and humidity to protect the home when it matters most.* By ventilating with Maestro BAL you can reduce summer temperatures inside the roof and minimise condensation formation which can result in mould growth or structural decay of roof timber.

Maestro BAL is a powerful,  mechanically driven ventilator that continuously and reliably improves the comfort and health of your home all year round. In addition, Maestro BAL is assessed by the CSIRO to be compliant with the fire rating requirements of AS3959-2009 up to BAL-40.

The high quality aluminium based ventilator is preset to a continuous fixed speed and offers four additional speed settings (automatic,low, medium and high) to manage excess heat and damp in the roof space, providing a more comfortable and healthier home, while complying with a ventilator required for a bush fire area..

The maximum flow rate of the Maestro BAL is equivalent to six wind driven vents and can be used on a continuous and reliable basis, without reliance on the wind.

The quiet motor and low cost to run make this ventilator a valuable addition to the comfort level in your home. In addition, the Bradford Ventilation's partnership with Sensitive Choice (National Asthma Council) shows the support for Maestro BAL as a provider of better quality air, especially for those suffering from asthma and allergies.

 How many Maestro BALs do I need?

The number of Maestro BALs you will need will vary based on your roof size and reasons for ventilating. As a general recommendation, 1 Maestro BAL is sufficient per 81m2 of roof space on a high setting. However, for the best ventilating results, contact the Bradford Ventilation team and we can help you with a solution custom to your needs.

*Operating mode preset to fixed speed for NCC2019 compliance. For more information on how to activate Air iQ and alternate settings, see the Product Manual at”
