Dormer vents built to protect.
Dormer roof vents allow heat to escape from the vent itself and are important to properly cool attic space. However, because dormer vents are raised, they are a common entry point for dangerous embers. By equipping dormer vents with Vulcan Vents, the home has better protection from floating embers that fly before a fire.
Vulcan Vents carries durable, attractive,
fire-resistant dormer vents including:
- Low Profile “Eyebrow” Vents
- Can be used as an off ridge vent designed for sloped roofing or a flat roof as an air exhaust vent or intake vent
- Half-Round Dormer Vents or “Round” Vents
- Vertical Dormer and Gable Vents
- Can be used in conjunction with horizontal vents for proper ventilation
- Retrofit Kits for Existing Vents
All our vents have various NFVA (Net Free Ventilation) sizes indicating the amount of open ventilation to allow airflow, measured in square inches.
Use EverKem Fire Caulking
- We recommend using EverKem 814+, intumescent fire caulking with all installation of Vulcan Vents.
- Our round eave vents are the exception: EverKem 136, mortar based caulking should be used when mounting hardware isn’t an option and flanges are minimal.
- INSTALLATION: Prior to installing the vent, run a bead of EverKem behind the nailing flange to ensure an air tight seal where the vent meets the building material. This ensures that no gaps are present between the vent and your building material where flying embers might enter!
