Abstract

See full text

A vertical soffit vent in which a length of frieze board is affixed adjacent a length of soffit molding, with a unique arrangement of vents--volutes--in between. More particularly, a length of frieze board having particularly shaped and dimensioned volutes therein is attached or integrally molded to an adjacent length of molding by means of a solid spacer strip. (Alternatively, the spacer strip may be eliminated and replaced with protruding teeth on the frieze board.) The entire combination may be integrally molded. The volutes in the frieze board are contained in the upper half of the frieze board, in and around the solid spacer strip. The combined vertical soffit vent is intended for mounting under the eaves of roof constructions, and permits enhanced air flow into the attic area by means of the uniquely shaped volutes. The outlet ends of the volutes are covered with an insect screen.
