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.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
