Very easy to fit once you've cut out out the required hole. Insert some gauze behind the outside vent to stop insects getting in

Nice little vents, worth buying

Bought these - recommended for airing if the cabin is going to be shut up for long periods of time.
Easy to fit but don't think I really needed them as I am spending more time in the cabin than the house

We bought two sets of the Tuin vents for our cabin and placed them on opposite walls as advices in all the guidance.
The vents are great, good quality and look really good and a change from the usual cheap plastic ones.

Hello. I purchased 2 of these air vents last year and have recently installed them in my log cabin after I noticed mould buildng up on both ends of one of the timber strips.. at each end.. as well as the entire strip feeling rather moist to the touch on occasions. There also appears to be a slight split in the same piece of wood .this is treated but not painted. Not sure if this is a reason for the moist? Anyway. I've installed the vents high up on the front and back walls. After reading these reviews today.. I see it mentioned that vents should be placed one high up and one low down. My question is should I move one or will it be okay both being high up? I could always purchase a third and place it low down as well if you think this helps ? Any help would be beyond appreciated. Many thanks Lloyd
Tuin reply: Hi Lloyd

Installing vents on opposing walls, one high and one low does provide the best chances of air being able to flow through the whole building, it would be worth a try to help with this problem

The right height to fit in one log, easy to drill holes in the wood to fit these. Screws supplied are not very good quality be careful the heads do not shear off when tightening. I had some old gauze/netting which I cut to size and put behind to stop insects coming through.

Bought these air vents for my Tuin log cabin as I’ve started noticing slight damp in the corners . As recommended I’ve fitted one high and one low on opposite sides of my cabin and they’re making a massive difference already , they look look smart , easy to install and help create an airflow through my cabin .
A little tip fit a small piece of mesh under the vent to prevent unwanted bugs and spiders .
Great product at a snip of a price

Excellent addition to my log cabin , started noticing a little damp in the corner so invested in a couple of these to tackle the problem , as advised fitted one high and one low on opposite sides to create an airflow , they both look good and seem to be doing the job . Easy to install and look good .
A little tip , get yourself a little mesh to fit under the vent to stop any unwanted bugs and spiders . Overall a great product that I should have bought sooner .

Every log cabin needs at least one air vent. Easy to install.
Will probably be buying another one shortly. Happy with item

Order a set of vents from Tuin to fit to my Dyre Log cabin to improve ventilation. When l ordered they were out of stock but Tuin were on the ball and kept me up to date with emails and calls. They are very easy to fit. The kit comes with screws. Bought some 1mm wire mesh to keep out bugs. Very pleased with this product.

Air vents are metal and easy to fit , would recommend purchasing, don’t use Cheap plastic !
Mr. Oliver G

If you have your log cabin shut up lots, or use it as a gym/workshop/pretty much anything, then you need one of these. Dead easy to fit (literally just drill a few holes and screw in) and lets your cabin breathe so prevents it from getting stuffy, good for preventing condensation, etc. Another quality product from Tuin.

Small but good quality air vents well worth installing to keep your cabin cooler during hot periods. Worth fitting an insect screen.

I nice sleek product which is good value for money.

TUIN log cabin air vent is exactly as described and easy to fit with included screws. Package arrived promptly and looks neat on both inside and outside the cabin.

I have a Tuin Peggy cabin, with 45mm thick walls. I have a gas heater in it and it was cutting out due to lack of oxygen. I installed two air vents and now there's plenty of fresh air.

There were also some signs of mould appearing in the bottom corner. This has also gone away now I have the air vents.

I'd definitely encourage you to install some for the health and long being of your cabin.

Not fitted these yet but look nice - low-key, which is what you want. I will fit my own bug-mesh. Would be 5* if bug-mesh was included in the kit.

I added some fine mesh behind it to stop insects getting in

The air vents were just what I was looking for well made and a perfect size. The web site was very informative as to installation and siting. I had one question which was promptly answered via email.
Mr. Steve Watson
Jan 18, 2022
Great little vent and comes with colour match countersunk screws. The vent has nicely rounded corners. We have installed the vents inside and outside of the log cabin to cover the holes through the logs. As the internal vent is up above head height we have turned the vent upside down so as not to see through the vent blades which hides the holes through the log. The vent sits nicely within the height of a single log also. Highly recommended.

We bought a Nilsson log cabin from you - everything has been great - however one of the doors had a crack in the glass when we were unpacking - you ordered a new pane of glass which was delivered last week - still very surprised that we had to change the pane ourselves! Ok it was fine my husband did it but what if I had been in my own - no tools who would have done it then ? Considering it was damaged goods on arrival !!
Other than that everything has been good
Tuin reply: Thank you for the feedback and overall i'm glad you were pleased with the purchase,

I can understand the feelings towards the glass, We do our best to package these things so they do not arrive cracked, thankfully however they are designed to be very easily interchangeable on purpose just incase.

I wanted to make sure my log cabin was properly ventilated during the winter months. I looked around several places to find suitable vents, but couldn’t find anything that would fit perfectly on one beam like this. So if you do want to fit vents I can only recommend you buy these at the same time as your cabin, and don’t waste time looking elsewhere.

Great product. Top quality and in total keeping with the log cabin. Perfect dimensions for the log sizes too. Also arrived very quickly. Full marks Tuin!
Oct 3, 2021
High quality item and perfect for adding ventilation to a cabin. Easy to fit, but a good idea to add an insect screen (not supplied) to prevent it becoming an entrance/home for bugs.

Bought the log cabin air vents after log cabin was too hot, fitted 1 at the front bottom and the other at the top rear to allow the air to circulate , easy to fit and great value.arrived with quick delivery and kept informed through the process.
Also brought a 2.5m log cabin which is really good,

Delivered quickly. Good, solid & well-made air vents. A good size for fitting to my log cabin in an effort to reduce damp.
Mr. John Heath
Feb 12, 2021
Excellent air vent grille. A template for cutting out the opening through the timber would have been appreciated. Also I had to stagger the 2 grilles as my log cabin is only 19mm thick timber, to avoid screws touching.

Purchased a log cabin in the summer from Tuin and amazing quality but being a chap that cuts corners at times I omitted to install vents. As winter hit and the cabin was unused slight damp started to show and a quick call and view of the informative blogs and 2 sets of vents ordered. 1 for the top and one for the bottom. Both sets installed with minimum fuss and a great fit considering hey fit neatly on a single log and are a pleasant sight internally and externally. All issues noe resolved and coupled this vent install with silicone sealant on the edges which double up the protection - again another great piece of advice on the blog! This has been my 2nd cabin from Tuin and both working well. Garden now finished and hopefully you can make out the small vent installed to the side! Thank you Tuin and the team!

Recently bought summerhouse from Tuin and advised to install air vent to assist with airflow and a damp free cabin, especially as now heading to the winter months.
Turned to Tuin again for their Air Vent product, as a natural choice.
Easy to order product via website. Very fast dispatch.
Fitted into log cabin easily taking recommendation from Tuin site for best place to fit to maximise effectiveness of air vent flow.
Once again really pleased with service, advice, and A competitively priced Quality product.
Would highly recommend.

Great sturdy little air vent for myt Emma corner cabin.

After a little advice from the guys at Tuin, I decided to fit this in the overhang. I don't expect to be using my cabin during the winter months so took Tuin's advice and fitted one as part of the build. Will be happy to order another if I feel a little more air flow is needed later on down the line.

So far so good ! Simple to fit and comes complete with screws.

We had an issue with a dusty mould settling on the back rests on two leather couches that we have in our recently purchased Agnes. However, after a quick look on the helpful Tuin website, which recommended fitting tuin vents, we purchased and installed two vents, and within a week the mould disappeared. Delighted with the quality of the vents and the clear information on the website. Well done Tuin.

Easy to install and looks nice in situ. As essential addition to the maintain air flow and reduce moisture build up. Recommended!

Had a slight problem with mould on a leather chair I had placed in my new Agnes cabin. I consulted the very helpfull website, which advised me to purchase the Tuin vents. After installing the quality vents, I have no further problems with mould.
Thanks Tuin!!

After researching cabin maintenance online and reading the Tuin blog it was obvious that these were essential to maintain the cabin in best conditions. The vents are fit for purpose and suggest you recommend them for all cabins.

Excellent a bit pricey though

This is a good looking vent cover set specifically sized to fit inside one log width of a cabin. It is a little expensive given that it doesn’t include a fly screen, but it fits perfectly, is made of aluminium (rather than plastic) and is simple to install.
I did look elsewhere but couldn’t find anything similar on the market so bought this. Very happy with installed product as looks really nice on the building.
Mr. Richard Woods

Made an immediate difference to the cabins condensation level. I installed two and added in insect mesh as well. Easy to install.
Mr. Philip Heath

This was just a second vent as I thought two were a better idea, despatched and received quickly. I cannot recommend Tuin highly enough. They also replaced two double glazed windows that were discovered to be cracked when work started and the log cabin was unpacked.
Be aware that you must keep all the labelling and notes in case of damage.
Mr. Martin Mellor

The air vent is the same size as the width of a log on the cabin. it comes as two parts one for inside one for outside . It is metal . It Would have been good if there were some instructions on were to place the vent as a newbie to log cabins I had to look it up .
On the whole I would recomend
Mr. Keith Taylor

Dispatched as soon as ordered. Small but solid. Nothing fancy about it but fits perfectly on one log and although it’s just an air vent actually looks pretty good.

Jan 17, 2019
This is a pretty basic peiece of kit but it does was it is designed for. It comes in two pieces which look easy to fit but obviously you need to drill a hole to allow air to pass through the vent. It is suggested to use a piece of fly gauze in the middle to keep out creepy crawlies. Maybe one of these coul;d be included but it isn't. That said, I'm happy with my purchase.

Excellent size, let's just enough air in with one fixed at the front and one at the back. Again excellent product and fantastic service from tuin.
Mrs. Elaine Carnell

The air vents arrived quickly and were easy to fit. We ordered some wire mesh from online to stop unwanted critters getting in. We’ve already noticed a difference as the windows don’t condensate on the inside now. Well worth having

Bought a couple of these vents, nice and small so don't look out of place, and will keep your log cabin nicely ventilated. I fitted some fly mesh inside of mine to keep the bugs out. Good buy.

Solid built and works exactly as described. Not the cheapest but happy to pay for better quality
Jan 29, 2018
Excellent product which does exactly what it says on the tin! I purchased two vents for my newly-erected cabin (also bought via Tuin) as they had been recommended to me as a good idea whilst fitting-out the cabin. Very happy with product and service.
Mr. Chris Thatcher

Nice finish well made product just the thing to put on a well made log cabin to allow to breath I have fitted one up high and one at floor level so cabin can breath parts where delivered from stock promptly

Great product. Arrived quickly and is perfectly sized to fit the slats in my log cabin.

Most of the vents available from my local chain DIY stores weren't actually suitable for outdoor use, so I was really pleased to find these from Tuin.

The condensation problems I'd had in the cabin have all but vanished since I installed these air vents.

You'll need to source some meshing to use with these vents to stop bugs getting in.

All in all - good product, and the good communication and speedy delivery from Tuin means I wouldn't hesitate using them again.
Mr. Alan Weston

I hesitated buying these vents because of the price but after fitting two pairs of these, I am very pleased with the result. They are smaller than I imagined and quite discreet. Very nice that the vents are made of aluminium, much better then plastic!

Well made vents , look good and should last a very long time
Would buy again.
Graham Palmer
Nov 28, 2017
Very good. There are no instructions so at first I was going to jigsaw a rectangle out of the cabin but then read some stuff on the Tuin website and found you only need to drill a couple of holes - nice and easy!

care and protect wood protection was easy to use and hopefully will give our log cabin full protection against the weather. The Window box is attractive and well designed. The air vents are compact and will hopefully provide sufficient ventilation to keep our garden furniture free from mold
Mr. Michael Spurgin

Early days yet but the atmosphere in the cabin indicates to me that the air vent is essential.

Got two of these for a Christoffer log cabin and they were exactly as described and very easy to fit. Highly recommend.

Attractive, compact vents. I installed these us near the apex and a set of open/shut vents low-down on an opposite wall. Definately helps to reduce the condensation on the windows.

I drilled two 70mm holes high up on diagonally opposite walls , fitted soffit vents both sides of each wall and finished off with the Tuin plates which look very neat.

poor quality and expensive
Tuin reply: Thank you for your review. We would be interested to know where the quality fails, please could you elaborate?

After much research and trying to source the best product for a log size the price is adequate. We think this is not bad value compared to those in the market. We do advise though you can source alternative styles and designs locally which maybe suitable at alternative prices.

Certainly if a customer finds a better, suitable product we would be interested in it and sourcing it as an alternative. We have though tried our best with this vent so it is suitable in our opinion in size, quality and suitability.

We would appreciate your thoughts on how the quality can be improved, the price and suitability and look forward to hearing from you.

Vents is sturdy and well made. Fits within width of one beam (most others I have seen don't). Perhaps a little too expensive.
Mr. Giles Winter

This is an excellent addition to my Peter 3x3m cabin. In fact I have bought 2 and this ensure a good circulation of air and it has helped stop condensation through these winter months.

Leonard Jenkins
Aug 20, 2016
All very well in explaining the need for a vent but what about some advice on fitting? Do you drill holes in the logs or cut out a lump with a jigsaw. Might seem obvious to some but not to me. I've bought two and need advice on how to prepare the logs prior to screwing in the plates, I presume one inside and one outside. And where is the best place to fit them?
Tuin reply: Thank you for your review, please see the product page for advice on how to fit them:

For additional advice on ventilation and the location please see this page:

If we can help any further please let us know.

Although slightly expensive I am very pleased with the vents and like the fact that they will allow our Jos log cabin to 'breath'.
The screws provided are stainless steel, vents are aluminium.
I have also fitted black plastic mesh to creep insects out.
They look very neat and fit within one log height which makes them ideal.

The air vent for my cabin came quickly without any postage cost.It was compete and looks nice on the cabin
More importantly staff were extremely helpful when I asked some questions about ventilation which was difficult to find elsewhere
Mr. Peter Kibble
May 10, 2016
Had some moisture build up in my new Hugo shed and so ordered these vents. Look good and well made. They don’t come with an insect filter but cheaply solved by fitting a fine mesh to the back of the vent. Problem solved!
Mrs. Clare Taylor
May 2, 2016
Good sized vent for the job, easy to install and looks good against the wood. Let down by the quality of screws which seem to be made of very soft alloy. Use your own screws as these will not withstand less than perfect screwdriver size or technique.

I've checked out other vents and look poor. This is perhaps a little more expensive but look the bee's knees. Pete (Brampton)
