Yes, you can seal your ridge cap from gable end to gable end against vermin and embers while keeping it ventilated?

The new and improved Perforated Vermin & Ember Seals have arrived.  These steel products help maintain your building’s BAL (bushfire attack level) ratings up to FL or Flame Zone while still allowing a degree of ventilation to your building’s envelope.

You can look no further than our three innovative products called Ridge Vent.

The ember seals will also exclude vermin like mice, rats, snakes, lizards, birds, bats, and more from your home or shed. This ventilated vermin seal helps you meet very high bushfire ratings while excluding embers and pests. Vent Mesh helps you to bal 29, and the perforated zincalume seals will help you meet flame zone requirements.

The new and improved design, manufactured from .55mm Zincalume, includes condensation ports punched to aid drainage and ventilation, plus pre-punched fixing or pilot holes. The perforations allow an approximate 1000mm2 of ventilated area per linear metre.

These products are not designed for hips and valleys—just straight ridges like on sheds and simple roof homes like a gable to gable. See our Hip and Valley seals for that.

Shadowline Ridge Vent hides in the shadow line under the ridge cap, negating the need to try and colour match old roof sheeting, and can be retrofitted by releasing some ridge cap screws, positioning the corrugated mesh, and replacing the screws.
