When venting through a wall is the best option a quality wall vent should be considered; the rectangular wall vent by Vent Works was designed with a spring loaded back draft damper and weather seal to prevent drafting from outdoors, we also included a ¼” inch steel mesh screen. For easy installation there are mounting holes of the flange. These heavy gauge vents are not available at your local home improvement or general hardware stores. There are 2 different material options; galvanized (26 gauge) and aluminum (high grade). There are 3 size options; the standard 10" inch, 12" inch, and 14" inch. Our rectangular wall vents are most commonly used in kitchen exhaust applications.
