Petersen Aluminum offers its line of Airflow systems, designed specifically with commercial buildings in mind. Highly suitable for both shingle and metal roofs, the system allows for balanced intake and exhaust ventilation to provide optimal airflow, greatly increasing the roof’s longevity and energy efficiency.
Petersen offers a complete line of ventilation products, which in unison, provide consistent airflow under the roof covering:
Petersen’s PAC SS Rake Panel and PAC SS Rake Fascia offer outstanding aesthetics in areas where ventilation is not required. Available in a wide range of colors, these products provide the perfect finishing touch for the edge rake side of the roof, complementing the PAC SS Vented Eave.
PAC SS Rake Panel and PAC SS Rake Fascia can be selected in sturdy 24 GA steel or .040, .050 and .063 aluminum, engineered to specific job requirements to meet the needs of any roof condition. The highly cost-efficient design also eliminates the need for wood blocking and soffits for additional savings as well as reducing the number of trades required to complete the project.
Provided in 12’ sections with pre-punched holes, SS Rake Panel and SS Rake Fascia install quickly and efficiently. Slotted holes allow for thermal movement of the material for long-term performance.
Plain and simple, proper airflow designed into the roof structure will extend the life of the roof. Premature re-roofing is expensive, and inconvenient to the building occupants. Without consistent and balanced airflow and proper NFA, moisture build-up will occur, which can damage the roof covering over time. Temperature fluctuations will cause snow melting and refreezing, resulting in ice dams on the roof that can cause structural damage as well as hazards to life and property on the ground.
In addition, providing constant air movement prevents heat build-up in the summer and heat loss in the winter, resulting in a more sustainable building with lower operating costs.
PAC Airflow systems, designed specifically for ventilation needs at the eave and the ridge of each project, contribute to the green roof system for superior sustainability and life-cycle value.
