Keeping moisture out of buildings goes beyond simply eliminating potential sources of leaks. Often, any place where air can penetrate a roof structure, moisture can get in as well. Both wind and water cause different kinds of roof and building damage, which is why the best roofing systems address both concerns with a single solution. At Radco, we’re proud to offer one of the most state-of-the-art systems currently available – The V2T Roofing System.
The V2T Roof System is different from existing roof vent devices because it uses the Venturi principle to capture the dynamic flow of air across the roof’s surface to generate low pressure. The vent works with the effects of the wind instead of against it. V2T patented technology is the only one of its kind in the world.
The V2T Roofing System was designed to eliminate destructive uplift forces caused by wind using a principle from physics that uses the energy of the wind to create a vacuum effect. V2T’s innovative vent design leverages that vacuum in such a way that it removes all air (and moisture) from beneath roofing membranes, effectively “locking” the membrane to the roof. One of the most attractive features of this design is that the harder the wind blows, the tighter the vacuum holds membranes in place.
In fact, the science behind V2T is so effective, it’s been tested* to withstand wind speeds as high as 150 mph – the same as a strong Category 4 hurricane.
All roof vents are fundamentally designed to draw unwanted air out of roof structures – but only V2T does so in a way that also offers quicker installation, less construction waste, and virtually no necessary maintenance.
