Ridge Vent RV10P
Our Ridge Vent is designed to release air from the roof void using the natural convection of rising warmer air, or by means of negative pressure created by wind blowing over the roof. The RV10P provides a calculated airflow of 8,000mm8 per linear metre, per side (16,000mm² total vent) and has an adhesive and flexible aluminium flashing which forms to roofing profiles, preventing water ingress. The RV10P is designed to be compatible with roof cladding profiles with a trough depth of less than 34mm.
NOTE: For standing seam or trapezoidal profiles ‘snipping’ or ‘crimping’ may be required. For roof cladding profiles with a trough depth of 34mm and over The RV10DT is designed to be compatible with most cladding profiles
The RV10P forms part of a passive ventilation system that works year round with no moving parts or energy consumption. The RV10P is to be used in conjunction with other specified Vent Systems 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 our Ridge Vents do not require penetration to the roof cladding and will be covered by ridge capping / flashings once installed.
The metal ridge cap is supplied by the roof cladding supplier. The capping can be extended to 200mm to hide the soft edge flashing if required.
