    Hi
    Looking to get 2 seitz mini hekis.
    Measured the depth I think I need and it's roughly 40mm from roof to bottom of rib the change over on the 2 depths of the vents 25 to 43 mm and 43 to 60 not sure what one to order.
    Any recommendations for roof vents with black out blinds will help too as the fiamma 28 crystal doesn't come supplied with one

    I fitted my own mini heki. You will have to cut the plastic stubs to the right length depending on roof thickness. I think mine was 30mm.

    Maybe you can find another vent that makes if easier to measure so you can be sure. I took bottom fitting off my tiny bathroom vent and was able to get more accurate measure there.

    If it really is 40mm then you need the smaller one but will need to cut off nearly all of the plastic stubs.

    Haven't allowed for ceiling board which takes it to roughly dead on 43. Going to look at other vents that go from 25mm to 50mm more room to play with
