Solar Innovations, Inc. Releases Second Generation Ridge Vents

Solar Innovations, Inc. a custom manufacturer of residential and commercial sliding, folding, and stacking glass walls, doors, windows, and screens; sunrooms; greenhouses; conservatories; skylights; and curtain walls; recently released a second generation ridge vent system.

Solar Innovations, Inc. has released the second generation ridge vent system. The new system can be integrated into any of Solar’s glazed structures, preexisting conventional construction, or retrofitted for the systems of obsolete manufacturer’s. Ridge vents are an essential element in passive ventilation systems, allowing fresh air to enter a space and eliminating stagnant air.

The G2 ridge vent is thermally enhanced with thermal strut and allows for wider openings. Spans up to 19 feet and up to four bays wide can be operated as one unit (engineering approval required.) This large scale ventilation is especially helpful when dealing with expansive greenhouses and pool enclosures that require constant fresh air circulation.

Versatility and adaptability are the key elements of Solar Innovations, Inc.’s G2 ridge vent system. The system’s increased flexibility allows it to accept universal motor options. The G2 system can also be attached to nearly any slope, allowing it to function as a motorized eave vent or operable window depending upon the installation conditions.

While some competitors’ ridge vent systems are bulky and detract from design, Solar Innovations, Inc. has created a ridge vent that is not only energy efficient and highly functional, but also aesthetically pleasing. The system features an integrated, extruded low profile hinge and concealed fasteners to create clean sitelines. A multi-tiered weep system prevents water leakage, assuring that the ridge vent system does not compromise the structure.

Solar Innovations, Inc.’s team of engineers and designers can work with customers to integrate a ridge vent into any existing structure or upgrade an aging unit to the new, high quality second generation system. Solar Innovations, Inc.’s sales representatives can answer any further question you may have regarding the second generation ridge vent or its ability to be integrated into existing systems; please contact 800-618-0669 or [email protected] to speak with a representative today.
