Air Vent’s

Air Vent’s The Edge™ Vent provides proper intake ventilation for homes with little or no overhang.

Click here to watch – Air Vents Explained

It’s a roof-top installed, shingle-over intake vent designed based on roofing contractor feedback from our Ask the Expert™ seminars. It can be used to supplement existing soffit or undereave vents as well.

The Edge Vent provides 9 square inches of net free area per linear foot to balance with ShingleVent® II ridge vents and other Air Vent exhaust vents.

  • Roof-top installation keeps the roofer on the roof
  • Internal baffles and filter provide weather protection
  • Constructed of same material as industry-trusted ShingleVent II ridge vents
  • Each 4-ft piece has integrated end plugs on each end
  • Radius design allows for increased airflow
  • 3/4″ low profile
  • Minimum roof pitch: 3/12
  • Setting tabs on bottom underside assist with installation
  • Key component of The Balanced System™ for Attic Ventilation
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty and 5-year Replacement Plus™ Protection.

The Edge Vent withstood a stringent 30-day simulated ice dam test conducted at
PRI Construction Materials Technologies. The roof deck under the vent and the attic
below it remained dry — even after an ice sheet built up over the entire Edge Vent.
This simulation should increase the confidence of roofing contractors in cold climates.

 

TEST SET-UP
■A section of The Edge Vent was installed on a roof deck with a 3/12 pitch.
NOTE: A 3/12 pitch allows for a “worst-case” scenario in terms of ice dam size.
■The roof deck with the vent installed was then placed inside an ice chamber where
the temperature was maintained at 10°F.
■Water was sprayed on the vent daily to allow for the formation of an ice dam at the eave of the roof. This daily water spraying ended
when the ice dam covered the first three courses of shingles.

 

THE 30-DAY ICE DAM

■The Edge Vent remained inside the freezer maintained at 10ºF covered under ice for 30 consecutive days.
■ For eight hours each day the underside of The Edge Vent was heated and controlled to 50°F to allow for the formation of liquid water
between the ice dam and the shingles.
■Throughout the 30-day test, the underside of the roof deck and the attic were observed for possible water leakage resulting from
The Edge Vent.

Bottom Line: No Leakage!

At no time during the testing did
The Edge Vent allow for or contribute to
weather infiltration into the slot or the attic.
