Hip Ridge® Vent
The shingle-over hip vent designed for hip roofs.
Air Vent has designed a ridge vent that gives roofing professionals another option besides power fans for today’s increasingly popular non-traditional ridgelines (hip roofs).
The low-profile, shingle-over design blends in with the hip of the roof allowing the vent to appear almost invisible from the ground. It provides exhaust along the roof’s hip allowing maximum airflow and uniform air movement throughout the attic space and its uni-directional construction allows for easy installation.
- Exceptional airflow. An external wind baffle directs airflow up and over the vent creating an area of low air pressure over the vent openings, pulling air out of the attic. Hip Ridge Vent provides 12 square inches of Net Free Area per linear foot.
- Advanced weather protection. The vent is designed with an integrated rain diverter to channel water away from vent, an internal weather filter to protect from weather infiltration and an external wind baffle that deflects rain and snow over the vent. Hip Ridge Vent delivers superior weather protection in all climates.
- Easy Installation. Hip Ridge Vent’s uni-directional construction allows for easy installation. The vent includes time-saving features such as imprinted slot guides for proper slot opening and alignment, reinforced nail holes designed to prevent over-nailing and high gloss nail lines for accurate shingle nailing.
- Limited Lifetime Warranty and 5-year Replacement Plus™ Protection. Provides peace of mind for the homeowner and installer.

Hip Ridge® Vent Has TDI Listing
Air Vent’s Hip Ridge® Vent now has an evaluation report listing with the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI). For the TDI report Air Vent used Architectural Testing to conduct the ASTM E330 Uplift test—which measures how much pressure it takes for an attic vent to separate or break from its mounting surface. The Hip Ridge Vent withstood 320 PSF (pounds per square foot) and never separated from the deck.
The Hip Ridge Vent was introduced by Air Vent to help roofing professionals solve attic ventilation challenges on increasingly popular homes built with little or no horizontal ridgeline. It’s designed for use on the diagonal hips of a roof. The Hip Ridge Vent provides the necessary exhaust airflow for an attic when combined with a balanced amount of intake ventilation.
