Test Results

Ventco™ Universal Ridge Cap Anchor Clip

An independent engineering corporation tested the performance of the Ventco Universal Ridge Cap Anchor Clip under high wind loading. During testing, a roof/ridge vent/cap system was subjected to wind speeds that follow the Dade County Test protocol.


  • 20 gauge galvanized steel
  • Visible surface painted black for aesthetic purposes

The following observations were made concerning the performance and structural integrity of the clip and ridge cap:

  • No lifting of the ridge cap up to 115 mph 
  • No fastener pull out or loosening
  • The ridge cap remained in contact with ventilation system
  • No difference in performance when the cap is secured to the clip with screws or blind rivets
