DCSM now offers continuous ridge vent for all of our metal roof systems, giving the customer a new alternative to the “off ridge” style vents, and in matching color with their roof system.
Continuous ridge vents are used for attic ventilation and specifically designed for metal roofing systems. On a slope roof an opening is cut out along the ridge line where both slopes meet to allow hot air to escape from the attic space as hot air rises to the highest point.
Two different vent profiles one for 5V Crimp shown above, and one for Standing Seam shown left. Match the color of the roof system, available colors and gauges are listed below.

ADDITIONAL PANEL INFORMATION
- Made from Galvalume not galvanized. Galvalume offers far superior corrosion resistance. Contact us for more details or literature.
* Galvalume sheet uses an aluminum (55%) – zinc (45%) alloy coating that offers greater corrosive resistance, higher temperature oxidation resistance, and higher heat reflectivity than standard galvanized steel.
† Kynar 500 is a premium fluorocarbon coating, produced with full strength Kynar 500 resin. This affords maximum exterior durability due to its outstanding resistance to ultraviolet radiation. These are the highest quality finishes available.
