Basic dimensions of the Aura Vent and it’s identifying attributes. Primary identifying dimensions of vents and fans are the inside diameter of the Head, which equals the diameter of the hole being vented, and the height of the Collar which is the solid tube between the Head of the vent and the Flange which attaches to the roof.
Louvers are the vertical openings in the vent, which facilitates the flow of air, while keeping animals, insects, debris, and embers out. The combination of inner and outer Louvers on our signature “Aura” series of vents and fans are shaped to create a positive vacuum effect which draws air out of the vent, utilizing a physical principle known as the Venturi effect.
Expected snow and rain in your region and the pitch of the roof are the key consideration when choosing the height of the collar of your roof vents. Zones 1 and 2 are not expected to sustain significant snow packs, while zones 3-7 are likely to experience snow, possibly for weeks or months. Vent collars under 4 inches are inappropriate for flat (0/12 pitch) roofs because even heavy rain can splash water into a shorter vent.

- The Aura Vent works like a roof turbine but with no moving parts.
- This static vent relies on the Venturi Effect (the creation of an upward draft) when the wind blows.
- Even the smallest breezes can create positive movement of air out of the vent.
- This movement of air is proportional to the wind speed, and can be measured in Cubic Feet per Minute or in Cubic Meters per Minute.
- Wind speeds of 11 MPH for example, produce 185 cubic feet of air per minute of attic ventilation.
These vents are rated for up to 200 MPH winds by Texas Insurance. They are certified by UL as well as Florida Building Code, the toughest in the nation. Being constructed entirely out of aluminum makes our roof vents highly resistant to rust and corrosion. In addition, they are insured for up to 5 years.
