About This Product

Active Ventilation Products Keepa vent will alleviate moisture in the winter and heat in the summer to extend the life of the roof and building structure. The Keepa vent is best used for flat roof attic spaces as an exhaust roof vent or fresh air supply intake roof vent. Made of corrosion resistant aluminum, the Keepa vent has a round concentric vent cap and standard 11 in. collar height, square flange and an inner louver wildlife guard. The vent cap is a manufactured one piece spun round aluminum cap that prevents rain and snow from entering the vent. The vent cap is removable to allow access for an easy rubber boot installation for membrane roofs. The 11 in. standard collar is excellent for locations that accumulate high levels of snow falls and the round design is aerodynamic to with stand wind speeds up to 200 mph. The Keepa vent has proven to be an excellent and economical choice for a flat roof application.

Q:How does it adjust from a 2/12 to a 12/12 pitch. Do I order the pitch I need or is it adjustable

Answer This Question

A:  This unit is not adjustable, the specs indicated the range of pitch in which this vent will work. Mike

by|Apr 2, 2024

A:  The Keepa Vent does not adjust to the pitch of the roof. The pitch capacity is up to 12/12, which means that the vent can be angled (be parallel) with the roof. The engineering principle for this is that the solid collar is much stronger than a seam in the collar. Also, with the roof vent being the same angle as the roof, it can handle high winds much better. If for some reason you do want the vents plumbed or perpendicular the the ground, people shim under the flange till it is level. Any further questions call me Martin, Active Ventilation Products 845-565-7770.

    Q:Can I use this on a metal roof?

    Answer This Question

    A:  It would depend on the space between the ribs. The flange is 17" square and cannot be shaped over the ribs.

        The vent is only black on the outside. Eventually it will rust on the inside. A bit disappointing.

        I needed to cover an over the oven microwave 13 X 3 1/4" vent duct that was carried thru a flat top roof. The white color was perfect with the white foamed roof.

        Easy to install, would be better if a cut out template is provided on the package.
