Solar-Powered Ridge Vent for Metal Roofs

Introducing our brand new Solar metal RIDGEblaster™ roof fan and solar panel for boosting your attic ventilation on metal roofs. It is a perfect application for sheds, garages and even homes with metal roofs. Remove hot attic air from the highest point even more effectively with Solar metal RIDGEblaster™!

So how does this attach to a metal roof?

Glad you asked. Before installing the final ridge vent cover, you attach the floating footprint flashing under the ridge vent cover with the fan attached using the copper-clad mounting brackets right inside the ridge vent opening. Then connect the two ends of wire to the panel and that's it. Our RIDGEblaster products include maintenance-free flashings. This features a very clean-looking installation application.

Can this be installed on a metal roof that already has ridge venting?

Ideally, these vents and fans should be installed before the ridge vent cover is installed. But if you know how to remove your ridge vent cover, then by all means, you will certainly be able to install our Solar metal RIDGEblasters on your roof.

Features:

  • Solar-powered fan vent that ventilates a home's attic, shed or garage on metal roofs
  • Added advantage over other vents because ridge vents exhaust air at the highest point
  • Helps remove hot, moist air faster than a passive ridge vent alone
  • Helps promotes uniform air movement throughout the vented space
  • Helps minimize mold/mildew growth
  • Helps prevent moist wood that can lead to rot and pest infestations
  • Improves your living space by removing the hot, oven-like temperatures in a home's attic
  • Makes a shed or garage into a cooler work environment
  • Improves the air quality in sheds and other work spaces by promoting fresh air movement
  • Prevents from rusting in sheds and garages because moist air is being removed
  • The three fan configuration allows the fans to turn on individually and gradually as the sun rises and produces more and more solar energy.
  • Floats on top of the metal sheeting and is secured under the ridge vent cover.
  • Easily installed
  • The fan works whenever the sun shines (no thermostat needed and no on/off switch is needed)
  • The ridge vent itself always works as a passive vent 24 hours a day, rain or shine
  • 25 year-rated solar panel (3 Watt)
  • 50,000 hour-rated fan (15 years at 9 hrs/day)
