ATLANTA, Ga. – Atlas Roofing Corporation introducesTechni-Flo, the engineered ventilation system for steep-sloped roofs. Techni-Flo is a component system manufactured to meet specific needs of steep-sloped roofs and engineered to ensure consistent intake and exhaust airflow underneath the roof covering of commercial building applications.
The three Techni-Flo components, Techni-Flo RV, CrossVent
and Techni-Flo EV, are the only complete system in the industry for steep-slope
roofs with features engineered to deliver prescribed ventilation capacity
specific to each job. The system works with shingle or standing seam
Inadequate volumes of properly directed ventilation cause
problems to a roof; especially in extreme climates. Build up of mold over time,
ice dams due to constant freezing and thawing, and shingle failure from extreme
temperatures are among the most common factors that prematurely weaken a
steep-slope roof. Heat build up in the attic also places abnormal demands on A/C
systems. These and other problems are avoided with air flow volumes engineered
to specification using Atlas Techni-Flo.
The key to optimizing temperature on larger commercial
roofs is to use a balanced system (a system where air intake matches air
exhaust). If there is too much air intake or too little exhaust, the temperature
cannot remain constant. Techni-Flo components are designed to work together to
create balanced air flow which optimizes
Techni-Flo supports a larger net free area than any other
ventilation system in the industry. By using the Ventilated Roof System
Calculator and the Net Free Area
Calculator, users can determine the specifications
necessary to ensure balanced, consistent ventilation for any steep-sloped roof.
