Get years of effective protection from the Vortex Valves System from Epic Roofing Solutions in Raleigh, North Carolina. The system contains no moving parts, reduces installation time, and minimizes the need for traditional fastening methods. The unique shape allows it to perform effectively with any wind direction.
Based on Scientific Principles
The Vortex Valves System is different from existing roof vent devices because it uses the Bernoulli and Venturia principles to capture the dynamic flow of air across the roof's surface to generate low pressure. The vent works with the effects of the wind instead of against it. It is manufactured from a single ply material that is strong enough to resist excessive wind speeds, yet lightweight enough for ease of handling and installation.
Using Wind Power
The Vortex Valves System uses the power of the wind to hold the roof securely in place. Based on a recognized principle of physics, the vent creates a vacuum that becomes stronger as the speed of the wind increases. The vacuum pulls the air from under the membrane—drawing it down to the deck and holding the membrane firmly in place. Destructive uplift pressures are counteracted by a greater vacuum force under the membrane created by the vent. The harder the wind blows, the better it works.
