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.
