  • 6" Wide x 8" Body
  • Part Number DJK486
  • 26 gauge Galvalume® sheet steel

Additional Description:

This medium sized Galvalume® roof cap has a plate (flange) size of 12” wide x 14” and the structure is 6” wide x 8” and about 8” high.  It has a 4.12 inch diameter collar that excepts typical residential dryer exhaust conduit.  Per building codes, there is no screen in this vent as it is exclusively designed for clothes dryers.  Unlike other roof vents this vent features a unique light-weight damper that is curved which increases the efficiency dramatically.  The final opening is 65% larger than the round pipe portion.  By far, this is the most efficient roof vent on the market. 

The collar penetrates the plate about 1.25 inches and is sealed to the plate with a silicone bead.  It will work on a flat roof as long as there is no chance of standing water greater than 1” and sloped roofs up to 12/12.  Note: Not recommended for use with a high-profile roof tiles like "S", Spanish S as there is only 5 inches between the opening and the bottom plate.  Nest building within would be doubtful due to the slope and shape of the damper.  This vent is proudly made in the USA.

Professional installation is recommended.

Not recommended for flat roofs where the water level could exceed 1” due to the inability of the roofs’ drains to dissipate the water.
 
Not recommended for for bathroom exhaust fans with less than 70 cfm output.

Questions and Answers
Q: What is considered a "high snowfall zone"?
Asked by:  - 6/4/2014 (Submit an answer)
A: High snowfall region would be where 12-24 inches of snow is typical or common. This taller design offers a "hood" of the exit point so that at initial dryer start-up, the hot air has a chance to exit and start to melt the snow blocking the exhaust.

Very happy with the product. Installation went well. Seems like a durable, quality product. The roofer who installed it for me was interested to know about it for his own use.

Product was exactly as described. It arrived quickly and is well made. I got the painted version and the paint appears to be very good quality. Installed fine, and works great. I forgot to take into account the vent connection is perpendicular to the flashing plate, and had to add a twisting 45-degree coupler to match the vertical dryer vent. Would recommend to a friend.

Dryer Jack - Extra Clearance design
This product is a life-saver! The installation only allowed for roof exit due to interior wall dryer placement in a house built in 1917. The unit is well made and easy to install. I chose the extra clearance unit due to a 2-12" roof pitch and fear of snow buildup. I used a 4" swivel unit to connect to the base so I could compensate for the straight pipe connection. The Dryer Jack is well worth the money and in-route communication was excellent. Great company and great product!

Nice Box, unsure about flashing
This is a nice product. It has a thin slit in the front at the base that is supposed to be left open. I wasn't sure the best way to flash it. Also, the center would bulge up and block the thin slit, so be sure to angle your screws out. Just installed it a few weeks ago, so we will see how it works, that's why it gets 4 stars.
