ATTIC RAFTER VENTS
A well-ventilated attic has soffit vents which allow fresh air
into the attic. The fresh air flows up between rafters to the ridge,
where a ridge vent, roof vents or gable vents allow the air to exit.
But if insulation
is allowed to bunch against the inside slope of the roof between
the rafters, air will be blocked before it can traverse the attic.
RAFT-R-MATE® attic rafter vents create a space between each
rafter for air to flow freely up the rafters and into the attic.
They are there to assist in the constant flow of fresh air from
soffit vent to ridge.
are used as an aid to greatly increase attic ventilation in all
seasons for comfort and prevention of roof damage.
The fact they they are made of extruded polystyrene means theyll
stay in place over time and will not rot or deteriorate. They're
made to work for you. In the event you decide to install rafter
vents yourself or even if you have one of our installers provide
this service, you can count on excellent break-resistance and lightweight
rigidity that makes installation easy and painless. Unlike other
baffles, Owens Corning RAFT-R-MATE® vents will fit 24"
rafters or snap in half for 16" or 12" rafter spacing.
