  • Is there a screen in the vent?

    There are 3 options; damper only, screen only, damper and screen. We use 1/4” inch galvanized steel mesh screen.

    Can it be used for dryer venting?

    Yes; use the "damper only" option which means it has a damper without any screen. Our screened wall vents have a fixed screen, this screen is not removable and as a result it’s not optimal for dryer venting. If you do use a screened vent you should clean the screen regularly because it will build up lint quickly.

    Can I use this with a bathroom exhaust fan?

    Yes; Try to match the bathroom fan exhaust outlet with the wall vent, it’s best when the diameter of the fan outlet, vent and duct are all the same e.g. if the bathroom fan’s outlet is 6 inch use a 6 inch wall vent with 6 inch ducting etc. If needed use a reducer to decrease/increase the diameter size to bridge the gap of difference from your fan to vent.

    Can I use this with a kitchen exhaust fan? (range hood)

    Yes; Try to match the kitchen fan exhaust outlet with the wall vent, it’s best when the diameter of the fan outlet, vent and duct are all the same e.g. if the bathroom fan’s outlet is 8 inch use a 8 inch wall vent with 8 inch ducting etc. If needed use a reducer to decrease/increase the diameter size to bridge the gap of difference from your fan to vent.

    Can this function as an intake vent?

    Yes; there are 3 options; damper only, screen only, damper and screen. Use the "screen only" option so the vent has a screen without a damper.

    Can the screen be removed?

    No; these wall vents have a fixed screen in them, this screen is not removable but we have a version with damper only.

    What size hole do I drill for the pipe?

    The duct (pipe) is 8” inch diameter so you'll want to drill a 8-1/8" diameter hole through the wall for the duct to fit properly.

    .

    Can I mount on a roof?

    No; it’s not designed for that application wall vents are designed to be installed through a side wall, you should use a roof vent.

    Can the duct pipe be cut down?

    Yes; the duct that comes off the back of the vent can be cut down with sheet metal shears or a hacksaw.

    Can the wall vent be painted to match my house color?

    Yes; first prep by wiping down with a solvent like lacquer thinner or paint thinner to remove all oil residue so primer will adhere properly. Then use an epoxy or etching primer as a base. Then paint it with the color matched paint.
