Design and Implementation of a Pressure-Equalizing Vent System for Low-Slope Roofs

Winds create forces on buildings, sometimes with disastrous results. Low-slope roofs are subjected to potentially high levels of suction pressure, especially when winds strike the corner of a building, creating vortices. Traditional methods of attaching roof membranes to substrates are prone to fa...
