Peaked Roof Or Flat Roof Cutting Simulator

Our Roof Ventilation Prop is a 10’ x 8’ section of roof atop our Mobile Training Trailer. This prop can be outfitted with any roofing materials, left flat with plywood and a rolled membrane roof, or put into a peaked position with tar paper and shingles. The roof prop is designed for students to practice using tools to “vent” at greater heights.

The trailer roof prop has 4 adjustable pitches: 0 degrees, 10 degrees, 25 degrees, and 45 degrees. The joists are also easily replaceable 2” x 8” lumber, although you should get multiple days using the same joists. Underneath a section of the roof prop is a 4’x4’ section with additional roof joists that can be outfitted with sheetrock to allow for ceiling pulling from the first floor or to practice “punching down the ceiling” after your ventilation hole is made.

Additionally, pulling out the roof joists, creates an area that can become a “FF through the floor” or “FF through a peaked roof” scenario to practice RIT skills.
