    HIGH PERFORMANCE ALUMINUM SOFFIT VENTILATION


    The challenge was to invisibly provide enough air flow (NFA) to work with a ridge vent, while meeting international building code recommendations. In order to accomplish this, we chose to use a high performance aluminum.


    The Department of Energy states that you can properly ventilate your attic, you can potentially reduce the temperature up to 50⁰ F.

    TruBead Aluminum Soffit vs. Vinyl Soffit

    With an NFA of 2 or less, most vinyl full vent soffit panels only offer half of what’s required to work with a ridge vent system on a 1 ft. overhang.

    Many vinyl and even aluminum lanced soffit panels offer less than a 10 NFA or what’s required to work with a ridge vent system.

    TruBead Soffit has a patented micro-lance design that provides the right amount of airflow (10.2 NFA), while maximizing the architectural integrity of your overhangs.

    Color Options
