Description
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.  Outside dimensions are 6.5" x 6.5".  

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. 

 
Environments:
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.

Best vent cover I have used
I had been looking for a vent cover that would last and not let birds in. This is it. I have install several of these for customers and one of my one and they have worked great.

Best I've Found
Received quickly after ordering. Solidly built, closes firmly and doesn't "flap" in heavy wind. Far better than aluminum or plastic wall vents. Will be easy to insert vacuum hose to remove lint from vent pipe. It does not make an airtight seal however, (aluminum vents with flapper don't seal either) so I don't yet know it will be in the winter. Good product, would buy again.

Premium Flush-mount Metal Dryer Wall Vent
I purchased to tan Premium Flush-mount Metal Dryer Wall Vents. We have a dryer vent on our second floor that is no longer in use. We moved the laundry to the basement. There was a large bees nest in the unused existing dryer vent on the second floor. The next owner may want to relocate the laundry to the second floor. So I searched long and hard for a vent that would not be an eyesore on the side of the house. I bought 2 to replace the unused vent and the one that we currently use. These vents will solve my bee/rodent problem on the unused vent because the door is magnetized shut. The both look great, the are flush with the siding and very durable. I am stupid when it comes to fixing/repairing things and I installed both my self. Very easy. I might buy another one for the bathroom exhaust fan vent pipe. They are a great quality and look even better.

Great retro fit look
Installed DB425 box with pipe and elbow 2 years ago. Replaced previous installed vent termination, ball type previously bought from In-O-Vate in new construction installation. Much cleaner look on Lap Sided house. Video was helpful in what need to do to retrofit, adjusting pipe termination. Need to include SS washer headed screws to help with install, but not a big deal. High quality product, dryer seems happier too.

premium flush-mount dryer wall vent
Since last fall I bought four dryer vents from this company. It was a pleasure to deal with them. The product is excellent and easy to install. Why four? I have three children and they also liked the vents especially since I paid for them.
