Heavy Snowfall, Rain, Hurricane Winds – Our Durable Roof Vents are Engineered and Tested for that!
We have had numerous customers tell us about their experiences after buying a new Aura Ventilator. Many of them tell us that our durable roof vents were able to survive through hurricanes in Florida or snowfall in Maine – without leaking or damage! This success story below comes from a roofing and masonry company located in the Canadian province Nova Scotia, a peninsula located just east of Maine.
From: Mader’s Roofing & Masonry Ltd. in Lr. Sackville, N.S.
We find these to be of superior quality and durability for the climate that we live in here in Nova Scotia. Our experience with these vents to date is as follows:
1) They withstood Hurricane Juan (140 mile per hour winds) No fault found.
2) They kept any light snow from entering roof. “GOOD DESIGN”
3) They vent well and seem to create a siphon of air on their own.
We are very pleased with the appearance from the design aspect and durability of the product. We will use these vents in the future.
To the best of our knowledge, ventilation performance has been satisfactory with no problems associated with severe winter conditions. In fact during February of this year we experienced the largest single day snowfall in recent memory, just shy of 3 feet in depth.
We back up these testimonials with our UL certifications and wind pressure testing. Our Aura Vents, Round Back Vents, Pop Vents, Keepa Vents, and Universal Vents have certifications and are tested to wind pressures of 50+ PSF, equivalent to over 200 mph wind speeds! These vents also exhaust air passively, so there’s no need to worry about moving parts that need replacement or repairs after storms or regular wear and tear.
