Eave Vents

The Vent That Protects

Our eave vents are fire-resistant, with intumescent coating that closes at very high (flame) temperatures and ember catching mesh. Especially recommended for the Wildland Urban Interface! To effectively cool the attic outside air needs to circulate through it. In the evening when excess heat is stored up inside the attic’s insulation, it’s critical to quickly release that heat for the night to consequently save on cooling and venting costs.

Eave vents listed without  the suffix of FC, S, SMC, FF or with an ‘RT’ are made for truss and/or rafter installation which commonly have imprecise gaps. These vents have variable tabs which can flex to fit those varying gaps. See them in our 3D eave viewer.

Install Vulcan Vents in numerous construction materials: Wood (FF), Stucco (S) as well as with Mil Core (SMC), Foam Back (FB), Fiber Cement (FC), and more.

Little is different between eaves and soffits. Ours eaves are categorized as such by common installation sizes.
