WHY IPS SMARTVENT™?

Intake ventilation is a necessity for a properly ventilated attic. While many contractors and homeowners assume soffit vents to be an adequate source of intake, the actual effectiveness of those vents is not always as it seems on the surface. On many occasions those soffits are blocked by insulation and offer little to no airflow.

IPS SmartVent is the most versatile intake vent solution in the industry. SmartVent can be installed anywhere on the roof from the eaves to the ridge, remains durable, and outperforms soffit vents and other intake vent products.

BETTER SOLUTION THAN SOFFIT AND STANDARD INTAKE VENTS

IPS SmartVent allows unobstructed airflow to the attic exhaust vents. Since the SmartVent is installed on the roof, it overcomes insulation-blocked soffits and allows cooler air to flow under the roof deck and shingles. SmartVent has no obstructions within the product allowing for two-way cross flow of air and more airflow overall.

SmartVent's durability is unmatched in comparison to other intake vents. SmartVent is made of flexible material that accommodates imperfect or uneven roof deck surfaces, is nail-gunnable and will not become brittle in extreme heat or cold.



EASE OF INSTALLATION

Soffit installation requires the roofer to remain on a ladder for the duration of the job. SmartVent keeps the roofer on the roof for a safe, uncomplicated installation. SmartVent can be installed without removing existing soffit vents.

SmartVent is nail gunnable, more lightweight and easier to handle than most intake vents, and cuts easily with a utility knife. Unlike other intake vents, only one layer of Ice and Water Shield is required for proper installation.

IPS offers SmartVent tapered end-caps for easy transition on ends, eliminating the need to cut and fabricate end-caps at the jobsite.




APPLICATION VERSATILITY

IPS SmartVent is usable for intake and exhaust venting applications all the way up the roof from the eaves to the ridge.

SmartVent provides mold and moisture benefits in all weather conditions. SmartVent's built-in weather fabric blocks weather infiltration and can be used in heavy snow areas on homes with or without gutters, helping to extend the life of shingles in any climate.


GUARANTEED TO LAST

IPS SmartVent is backed by a Life of the Roof™ warranty and is ICC approved (ICC-ES ESR-2484). SmartVent is patented and proudly made in the USA.



RIDGE VENTILATION

IPS SMARTRIDGE™ I — ONE-SIDED RIDGE VENTILATION

IPS SmartRidge I is the most efficient ridge exhaust system. By exhausting air on one side, the SmartRidge I siphons 100% attic exhaust without pulling in exterior air, rain, wind, snow or ice from the opposite side of the vent. The SmartRidge I produces a flat roof line with no street side lift for a clean, natural look.

IPS SmartRidge I is easy to handle, cut and install, is nail gunnable, and is backed by a Life of the Roof™ warranty.





HIP VENTILATION

IPS SMARTRIDGE™ II — TWO-SIDED HIP & RIDGE VENTILATION

IPS SmartRidge II is a versatile vent that can be used for hip and ridge ventilation. Equipped with protective weather fabric, the SmartRidge II prevents weather infiltration, protecting the roof structure from damaging moisture.
