Marco Industries™ has announced the formation of the Python™ Steep Slope Ventilation Division to focus on the issues of heat buildup and excess moisture in attics caused by inadequate roof ventilation. Marco Industries, a provider of metal roofing ventilation, is leveraging its considerable capabilities in engineering, design, and manufacturing to address the many costly issues plaguing the ventilation of shingle roofs. The realities of an aging housing stock, combined with newer highly insulated and sealed homes, means the challenges have never been greater. These issues have not been adequately addressed by an industry noted for small changes and low innovation.
Python’s 4’ plastic FlexFit™ Ridge Vent is field adjustable from 12” to 10” and 9” shingle cap sizes, all in one product, making it easy to stock and easy to install on a variety of roofs. The Python Weather-Tite™ Rolled Ridge Vent, in 20’ rolls, is economical; extremely durable; and keeps out rain, sleet, and snow with its tiny but dense baffle construction impregnated with a non-wicking polyester composite formulation. The 4’ plastic field adjustable Weather-Tite FlexFit Ridge Vent includes non-wicking polyester, no-clog, weather barrier that is 99.99% waterproof and will not allow snow, dust, dirt, or insects in. Also included in this product line are the patented, impact-tested, and virtually leak-proof Python 65 Slant Back Vent offering 65 square inches of Net Free Area with side crickets, shedding water around the throat of the vent, and the 150 Round Vent offering 150 square inches of Net Free Air.
