RIDGE ROLL VENTILAITOR Filed Feb. 27, 1928 WxfMaore INVENTOR ATTO RN EY WITNESS:

UNITED STATES WILLIAM A. MOORE, OF LAKOTA, IOWA.

RIDGE-ROLL VENTILATOR.

' Application filed February 27, 1928. Serial No. 257,413;

This invention relates to a ventilator for barns, stables and the like, the general object of the invention being to provide a cylindrical-like casing for enclosing the entire ridge part of a roof and having wings at its sides which are formed with openings and the roof having an opening at its ridge which is in communication with the casing so that air can pass from the building through said opening into the casing and then pass from the casing through the wings and can enter the building through the wings and casing and through the opening in the ridge. Thus the invention will give ventilation all along the roof and at the same time will prevent the entrance of rain and snow.

This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts,

to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and specifically pointed out in the appended claim.

In describing my invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which Figure 1 is an elevation of port-ion of a roof, showing the invention in use.

Figure 2 is a transverse sectional view through Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a view similar to Figure 2, but showing the invention applied to a shingle roof.

In these views, 1 indicates the cylindrical portion of the ventilator and 2 indicates the wings thereof which extend downwardly and outwardly from the cylindrical portion and these wings are adapted to be fastened to the roof, one on each side of the ridge thereof by any suitable means. The drawing shows a stepped strip 3 for fastening each wing to the roof. This strip has its lower parts fastened to the roof and its upper portions to the wings so that the wings are held in spaced relation to the roof, thus permitting air to enter or escape from the cylindrical part 1 between the roof and the Wings. An opening 4 is formed in the ridge of the roof and the metal with which the roof is covered has its edges, at the opening, turned upwardly as at 5, to provide a tapered opening 6 for connecting the interior of the building with the ventilator. The edges of the metal portions 5 extend above the junction of the wings with the casing so that there is no danger of rain or snow entering the building through the opening.

In Figure 3, the invention is shown as applied to a shingle roof and in this case, the metal flashings 7 are extended to form the restricted opening 6 for connecting the building with the ventilator.

It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of my invention will be readily apparent.

I desire it to he understood that I may make changes in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, )rovided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claim.

l/Vhat I claim is In combination with abuilding having an opening in its ridge, a ventilator comprising a casing of cylindrical shape in cross section with the lower part open, a downwardly and outwardly extending wing connected with each edge wall of the opening, spacer strips connected with the lower faces of the wings and with the roof, one on each side of the opening therein for holding the ventilator in spaced relation with the roof with the cylindrical part directly over the opening in the roof and metal strips attached to the roof, one on each side of the opening therein, with their upper parts curving upwardly and outwardly into the ventilator, with their upper edges entering the cylindrical part of the ventilator, whereby the cylindrical part is in direfct communication with the opening in the roo In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
