Hip Ridge Vent Success Stories

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.

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.
