Eave Vents

Eave vents built to protect.

Eave vents are meant to provide airflow into the attic space underneath the roof. To effectively cool the attic, outside air must provide proper circulation. 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.

Eaves, the undersides of your roof, extend beyond the walls of the home, an area that commonly hangs directly over decorative plants, vegetation, and other combustible material, creating high fire danger from wind-blown embers.

Vulcan Vents make
fire-resistant eave vents.

Our noncombustible, corrosion-resistant eave vents are equipped with an ember-catching wire mesh screen complete with an intumescent coating that self-closes at very high temperatures when wildfire is near. 

Vulcan Vents do not use airflow-interrupting baffles, resulting in more venting per square inch for the net free area.
