For smaller attic zones with less volume, the RM 1200 is the best option. When a roof mount is not desirable, or for areas with an existing gable vent (or other passive vent) use the IM 1200.
For expansive attic zones with more volume, the RM 1600 provides the most efficient venting solution.
For homes with a single smaller attic zone,
the RM 1200 is an ideal solution.

Flashing Options



Low Profile
This sleek, discreet design is for most roof applications.
A great alternative for north facing roofs when you need to improve exposure to the sun. It’s ideal for tile roofs when used with the self-flashing Tile Roof Add-on Kit (sold separately).
High Profile
This unobtrusive, aerodynamic design is perfect for locations with heavy snow loads. It’s also another option for tile roofs when “mudding in” is preferred.
