FAQ All About Ridge Ventilators

metal ridge vent

Airflow ridgevent, when combined with ridge louver plate venting creates a path that allows continuous airflow throughout the entire bottom of roof. Airflow is maintained in two ways. First, hot air naturally rises and exits out of the ridge louver plate vent, pulling in cool air from below. Second, positive airflow across the ridge of the factory building creates a “venturi effect”, or a negative pressure, which pulls air out of the ridge louver plate vent and brings in cool air from the opening below.

Airflow Ridge Vents come in four kinds: 1)) Hat Top Airflow ridgevent 2.) Monitor type Airflow) Onion Type Airflow Ridgevent 4) Apex type Airflow ridgevent The vents are all installed at the top of the roof, which is the best place to let air flow.

  1. The ridgevent on the top of the Hat Top Airflow is a good alternative to the Turbo ventilator and an effective and efficient ventilation system.
  2. Monitor Type Airflow: Good for mid-size factory buildings which have an emission of smoke, dust, or heat
  3. Onion Type Airflow Ridgevent: Concealed and water-tight ventilation system with a standard length of 3.00 meters
  4. Apex type Airflow ridgevent: for large buildings where the throat size of the ridge is large.

It’s one of the easiest ventilation systems to install.

YES, it can match any old existing roof sheets profile.

Airflow ridgevent are available in matching colours of roofing sheet or as per customer requirement.

It’s always advisable to use an airflow ridge vent throughout the ridge length.

Airflow Ridge vents are the newest and greatest venting innovation. It appears that these have become among the most popular options for venting. Airflow Ridge vents are designed to be installed at the peak of a roof slope. Airflow Ridge vents are slightly more expensive than other vent options. Airflow Ridge vents come with several advantages. When installed correctly they can provide a high volume of airflow per square meter, since the entire ridge acts as a vent instead of just one or two locations across the roof. The ridge must be installed along the entire roof to prove effective these vents are designed to provide an even distribution of air, rather than just venting specific spots or areas. This feature helps to make this one of the most efficient roof venting options nowadays.
