Baffled Ridge Vent

Benjamin Obdyke

 Shark Vent® XLP, a new externally baffled ridge vent from Benjamin Obdyke, is designed to offer the best of both worlds for contractors looking for a product with the rigidity of a sectional vent and the faster installation of a nail-gunable roll. Shark Vent effectively extracts heat and moisture from residential attics with a net free area (NFA) of 12 inches per linear square foot. Its sine-wave-shaped internal and external baffles with 1/8-inch-wide vent holes protect attics from rain, snow and insect infiltration. For extreme weather areas, the vent also comes in a filtered option (Xtra) for additional peace of mind. For more information, visit Booth 419 or
