New Roof Product for Air Flow, Aesthetic


Keene Building Products (Mayfield Heights, Ohio) has unveiled a new roofing product aimed at serving function and aesthetic.

The Viper Vent is a patented, light weight, ridge vent that provides 15 square inches of net-free vent area per linear foot. The company calls the design “one of a kind,” noting that its double density edge provides extra strength and rigidity while maintaining a sleek finish.

The Viper Vent has a filter that is manufactured with extra thick fibers, a UV-resistant textile that is 40 percent thicker than the industry standard, the company says.

The product is manufactured in five versions: 20 linear-foot, 20 linear-foot with nails, and 50 linear-foot, 50 linear-foot with nails and a 4-foot stick. The product is applicable on asphalt, wood, tile, metal or slate roof systems and meets all building codes, the company says.
