Abutment / Apron Vent – RV10P Half
Our Apron or Abutment Vent is created by simply cutting the ProctorVent Ridge Vent in half which creates the perfect ventilation product for both abutment or mono pitch barge details. The vents are designed to release humid and warm air from the roof void using the natural convection of rising warm air or by means of negative pressure created by wind blowing over the roof.
The RV10P Half provides a calculated airflow of 8,000mm8 per linear metre and has an adhesive and flexible aluminium flashing which forms to roofing profiles, preventing water ingress on any pitch roof.
NOTE: For standing seam or trapezoidal profiles ‘snipping’ or ‘crimping’ may be required.
The RV10P Half is designed to be compatible with roof cladding profiles with a trough depth of less than 34mm.
NOTE: For roof cladding profiles with a trough depth of 34mm and over The RV10DT Half is designed to be compatible with most cladding profiles
The RV10P Half forms part of a passive ventilation system that works year round with no moving parts or energy consumption. The RV10P Half is to be used in conjunction with other specified Vent System products, if unimpeded ventilation through the roof cavity is to be achieved. The Vent Systems Ridge Vent is a discrete replacement for traditional rotary driven (whirlybird) vents. Unlike traditional vents, ProctorVent Ridge Vents do not require penetration to the roof cladding and will be covered by ridge capping / flashings once installed.
The metal barge or apron flashings are supplied by the roof cladding supplier. The flashings can be extended to 200mm to hide the soft edge flashing, if required.
