This Low Profile Ridge Ventilator is designed for the builder of garages, mini-storage or other small recreational buildings. The low profile will blend in with almost any roof line. On a building with a typical 4/12 roof pitch, the top of the ventilator only extends 2 1/2" above the roof peak. The throat is 3 1/2" wide and totally unrestricted for easy air flow up and through the vent. The 1/2" ventilation slot on each side provides a net free area of 12 square inches per lineal foot for air flow.
Exclusive overlap flashing design protects against rain or snow entering building. All seams are also sealed at the factory with silicone sealant.
Each 10'long low profile ridge ventilator yields 120 square inches or .83 square feet of free area ventilation space. Unrestricted throat with 12 sq. inches of free area per lineal foot.
Adequate intake air to attic space or building is critical! Equal free area through soffit vents or end wall louvers is recommended. This creates an even flow through the vent and helps prevent entering in extreme conditions.
Shipped 2 per carton with flashing for individual or continuous run.
