Cor-A-Vent introduces Raft-A-Vent

Providing soffit ventilation for open-rafter construction has long been a headache for many builders. The options have been few, consisting mainly of a couple of screened-over holes in the blocking or a few metal grates every two or three rafter bays that don’t provide nearly enough ventilation and, quite honestly don’t look very good.

A 22½” Eave Vent designed to fit between the rafters
But Cor-A-Vent has the answer with its newest product, Raft-A-Vent™, a 22.5” long vent strip designed to fit between the rafters, on top of the blocking. Raft-A-Vent is the ideal product for this situation.
At only one inch thick, Raft-A-Vent will virtually disappear under the eave, but still provides 18.75” of Net Free Vent Area per piece and is designed to run continuously in every rafter bay to provide the superior intake ventilation you need for a balanced vent system.

Good ventilation helps reduce moisture buildup and the possibility of mold growth. For an unmatched system, pair Raft-A-Vent up with any one of Cor-A-Vent’s ridge vents, like V-300CS or FAV-20 81/2”.

Any of our soffit vents can be special ordered with stainless steel staples for areas that may have high corrosion or rusting concerns (seacoast, lake front, or industrial areas).
