Ensure optimum airflow and premium comfort inside your metal buildings with Metallic Products' continuous ridge vents. Our continuous ridge ventilators easily move fresh air through buildings of all sizes, including heavy industrial operations. Meanwhile, they remove hot, stale air — and air contaminated by manufacturing or production processes. And the benefits last year-round. During warm summer months, our gravity ridge ventilators release heat naturally. When winter temperatures strike, proper ventilation helps to control condensation and keep other moisture issues in check, including rust, mold, deteriorated insulation and product damage.

Your continuous ridge vent is available in a wide range of throat sizes — and with or without dampers to control airflow. (And installation is simple.) Pull chains are the standard means for controlling dampers. Multiple damper operations are available for two or more units. Standard ridge ventilators are shipped with a 1:12 end cap and can be field modified to accommodate up to 6:12 roof pitch. Ventilators can be custom ordered to accommodate roof pitches greater than 6:12. Read on to learn why our continuous ridge vents rank among Metallic Products' most popular metal building accessories.
