Product Overview

The proVent Rafter Vent channel provides an unobstructed air channel through your insulation. Improper attic ventilation prevents the free flow of air from the soffit to the exhaust vents, which reduces insulation efficiencies and accelerates moisture problems. ProVent may be installed prior to the soffit panel without fear of blow-out. It is recommended that one proVent channel be installed per rafter or truss cavity. This product is ideal for premium construction and difficult applications such as re-insulation jobs. Each carton contains 10 vents.
  • Made with pro grade tear-resistant high impact plastic
  • Plastic vents are rigid; eliminates breakage during re-insulation
  • Easy to transport and store at the job site
  • Full joist coverage; provides maximum air flow
  • Easily installs in both new and retrofit applications
  • Can be cut to fit any joist space
  • Cathedral ceilings require a continuous run of vents from intake to exhaust with a 1 in. space between each vent

Not really, we tried that but the insulation was not adequate to hold in place....they need to be lightly stapled to beams, 2 staples per side will work.

I used an air compressor with a pneumatic stapler (NOT a Staple GUN) that used generic 1/4" staples. Took no time at all.

In a 68 x28 2 ft. o.c. how many baffles are required

Easiest way to estimate how many you need is to measure the length of one joist bay from soffit to roof peak, Divide by 4 foot, and multiply by how many joist bays you have. Way easier than calculating it from square footage measurements.

Here is what I did to achieve an R-30 value with 2x6's. Use batts of R-21 unfaced insulation, then apply R-10 2" rigid foam board insulation over that. Attach drywall with 3" screws. (Note: Mark all your rafter centers for attaching drywall later. You will never locate them through the foam board.) You end up with R-31 when done!!

Can these be used with any type of insulation?

These are used to vent air between the soffits and attic space. I think these are a tad over priced for what they are but it seems like they work and they are easy to install. All you need to do is slide them into the rafter space down to the soffit opening, staple them in, then put in some kind of dam to prevent any insulation from falling into the soffiting. I used fiberglass rolls because it was quick and simple but you may want to use some thing that prevents air from passing through like foam blocking. You can install more than one vent to extend the height if needed. I installed two in each rafter.

Worked very well. Fairly rigid. Enough to slide past some nails through my soffit vents and then move to attic for final stapling.
