You’ve discovered a new addition to our dryer venting line.  This wall vent is unlike anything else on the market.  Having been in R & D for over a year, this vent features a powder coated galvanized metal frame and a lightweight damper that is innovatively impenetrable to birds and creates zero back pressure
Works great for new construction but was designed for ease in retrofitting the old inefficient legacy hooded vents.

Unlike legacy and “Mainstream” wall vents, our Dryer Wall Vent is without hesitation a "Premium" fitting.

Efficient: Without question, vent hood design or lack of, clearly remains the leading offender of inefficient back pressure levels in the dryers’ exhaust conduit.  Actual laboratory test best demonstrate the range of back pressure levels that popular wall vents create.  Values above .60 water column inch are considered in the industry as excessively restrictive.  Values below .20 water column inch are considered very efficient. 

The Dryer Wall Vent’s restriction coefficient is lower than any other wall vent we’ve tested. Less restriction in a dryer vent delivers real savings to your monthly energy bill.

Damper: Dryer vent hoods come in multiple styles.  The objective of a vent hood for the dryer is basically two fold; prevent back drafts and prevent bird or rodent entry as well as nest building.  We meet those objectives with a well-engineered lightweight damper that

• Mitigates the ability for a bird to open the damper
• Provides no Air-flow restriction
• And is easily accessible to duct cleaners

Design: The Dryer Wall Vent collar is sized to fit snuggly within the standard 4” seamed pipe.  This feature becomes an advantage to installers and DIY's when retrofitting this vent but also accommodates new construction. 

Material: Sun and weather take a toll on plastic vents, and the typical aluminum hooded vents dent and deform easily.  The stylish Dryer Wall Vent body is constructed out of Paint Grip (Bonderized) steel, then washed and powder coated to achieve an excessively weather tolerant and strong uni-body.  The securing screws are hidden behind the damper. 

The Dryer Wall Vent works with lap siding, stucco, brick and many other conventional sidings.  The non powder coated hinge pin is aluminum to offer total corrosion-free protection. 

Questions and Answers View all Q&A
Q: How well does this prevent back drafts? I have seen some with a rubber piece the door closes onto and this looks like metal on metal.
Asked by:  - 7/30/2014 (Submit an answer)
A: The damper has a few features that keep the rodents out and the wind from creating a nuisance. First off the damper has a small return of material around the three edges, this makes it almost impossible for a squirrels finger nails to get anything to grip on to open it, as well as a bird beak. There are two small magnets in each corner of the damper that creates a slight hold on the door to hold the door closed when it is not in operation, and this minimized the chance that the damper could "bang" in the wind. There are also two rubber bumpers that the damper rests on and also minimizes any sound it could produce by closing.

Q: Is the dryer wall vent paintable? If so, what paint do you recommend?
Asked by:  - 11/22/2014 (Submit an answer)
A: The finish on the wall vent is similar to what is on your washer and dryer now. if it was properly cleaned and roughed up with 220 grit sand paper, the vent could be spray painted with several very light coats of paint.

Q: Can this product be used for bathroom exhaust fans as well as dryers?
Asked by:  - 5/16/2014 (Submit an answer)
A: I just installed one for a basement bath fan. The fan puts out 65-70cfm. Exhaust is routed through about 30 feet of 4" pipe with one 90 degree turn. The flap on the dryer vent opens about half way. Airflow does not seem to be restricted at all.

Answer provided by:  
A: This wall vent can and has been used for exhaust fans, but we recommend a minimal 65 CFM of air flow. Most of the inexpensive and smaller fans only produce about 50 CFM. Dryers produce about 200 CFM. Hope this helps.

Quality Product
NOT made in China obviously. It is hard to find quality products like this these days. So tired of the thin sheet metal and plastic parts that are destroyed by the time you get it installed. Will be recommending to all my friends. Thank You Dryerbox!

Quality Product
After replacing 2 plastic vents, I was searching for something better. Found it in Fine Home Building magazine. Very impressed with construction quality. Cannot speak to longevity at this time, but I expect it to last a long time. Had to order directly as no one carried locally.

Solid, old school
This is a solid, well built piece like things used to be. Wish there were more products in the world like this, instead of the big box store lowest common denominator cheap junk that has proliferated the shelves these days.

Dryer Wall Vent works as advertised, but be aware that it fits inside the outlet pipe. I wish there were an option for one that slides outside the vent pipe (like every other part of the system) so it would reduce back pressure, and not trap lint. I modified the vent to accomplish this, but it was a pain to do so.

Great product!
This is a well made good looking product. It is simple to install with only a few hand tools. This will replace the plastic dryer vent cover that disintegrate every 3 years in the hot southwestern sun.

Purchased this unit to replace a severely deteriorated plastic vent. It is very sturdy, and installs inside a standard 4 inch vent pipe. I did have to enlarge the provided attachment screw holes, but after that, with a little caulk to seal it against the ship lap siding, installation was easy, and the unit functions very well.

Flush Dryer Vent
This is the best design for a dryer vent. I have a long run and the vents I have used have always clogged with lint and limited airflow. Im very happy with my purchase. Lots of junk on the market, but this is a quality vent. You will not be disappointed in this.

good choice
I would def recommend this product. It looks great, and the brown blends well with my weathered redwood siding. this is the chief reason I bought it - no ugly silver or white hood sticking out. and the person who installed it had no trouble. we did have to buy an extension tube b/c I the wall was thicker than I thought. I do agree that it would be nice to have a bit more of a seal or gasket around the flap. the main concern in Houston is bugs getting in, and they can exploit the slightest gap.
