Application

  • Suitable for providing ventilation to a tiled or slated roof ridge at a pitch of over 25°. To be used in conjunction with the AIRTRAK® LPS Low Pitch Soaker.
  • E Version: For increased resistance to both wind uplift in exposed locations and corrosion in coastal locations, the ventilator can be supplied in 1.0 mm-thick, 316 grade stainless steel. Where extreme weather conditions are likely, consideration should be given to providing more weathering cover to upstands and slating or tiling to improve the integrity of the detail.
  • FR Version: To reduce spread of fire through ventilation apertures, the ventilator can be supplied with an intumescent seal.


Note: Standard AIRTRAK® details assume moderate weather conditions. Small amounts of moisture may be admitted under heavy storm conditions. Where more severe weather conditions are likely, consideration should be given to increasing the vertical overlap dimension to upstands and to slating or tiling to improve the integrity of the weathering detail. For slate and tile details the manufacturer also recommends the use of the Airtrak LPS where appropriate. Contact manufacturer for further technical help.

Description

Provides ventilation of most ridge tiles using traditional wet laid methods. Particularly suitable where the existing ridge needs to be retained or on heritage properties where a dry ridge system may be inappropriate.


Features and benefits:

  • Includes a certified and storm-rated weather strip to the underside, which serves to check wind-driven rain on the face of the tiles or slates and also to seal any fixings through into the top batten.
  • An expanded stainless steel mesh on the face of the RTV provides a key for the mortar bedded ridge tiles.
