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. 

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.

Q: Can this product be used for bathroom exhaust fans as well as dryers?
Asked by:  - 5/16/2014 (Submit an answer)
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.

Q: How well does it perform under winter conditions? Snow, ice, extreme cold etc.
Asked by:  - 5/21/2014 (Submit an answer)
A: Good question Frank. Perhaps the best way to answer that, and this is from us the manufacturer; The wall vent has been on the market long enough to have made it through two winter seasons and to date we have not taken a call mentioning any inefficiencies or malfunctions due to extreme cold conditions. Total sales are sufficient enough to gain confidence that the product works in these extreme cases.

Q: Will need to use the additional mounting block to accomodate the lap siding on my home. Will exterior grade paint adhere to the block?
Asked by:  - 5/21/2014 (Submit an answer)
A: The mounting block we sell (under accessories) is a 100% PVC product by Azek. Azek's FAQ's suggests a 100% acrylic latex paint. Here is the full FAQ. Other forums suggest very good luck with Ben Moore and Sherwin Paints. http://www.azek.com/technical-center/faqs.aspx#qTrim-20

Easy to Install
We are installing new siding on our home so ordered these vents to replace the old dryer and bathroom vents. Since they are so easy to install, we decided to temporarily slide in the new vents to test them out before the new siding goes up. Bathroom vent fit with no problems. We had to cut off the edge of the existing dryer pipe because it had a lip on it that folded in making the opening too small. Both vents worked great. Bath fan is a 50 cfm model with a 5 ft straight run, no elbows and the vent blows open OK with no modifications. Great product! Our remodeling company was impressed with the quality of the vents. We’re looking forward to getting them permanently installed.

Excellent Product
Our existing plastic vent fell apart and we took a chance with this gadget. Shipment was prompt and it arrived very quickly. I was pretty skeptical about installation thinking I would need to re-pipe the venting. Not so. Even easier than the video. Probably took less than 10 minutes and it looks great and functions perfectly. It might even last forever! Great product -- highly recommended!

Premium Flush-mount Metal Dryer Wall Vent
Love this item. I have a whitish brick house and this vent looks really good against the brick. It's well made and easy to install. I also bought one for our church school to replace the one that the critters loved to eat. I doubt is they will be eating this one. Thanks for a well built product. Bruce

Very Nice
I have been looking for a vent to replace the old louvered vent that was installed for some time. I really like this vent. Looks great. Works great. Installed on older home with vinyl siding. The vent was larger than the old louvered vent requiring adjustment of the mounting space. I think it would have been easier and more efficient if the collar was sized as a female so the 4" pipe from the dryer slid into the collar instead of around the outside. Overall very pleased.

Premium Flush-mount Dryer Wall Vent
Very well engineered and constructed to be simple, rust-free, opening easily (efficient), and closing completely (rodent/snake barrier). Surprise for me: When I removed my old plastic vent, the original hole in the block wall was revealed to be very irregular. Mounting the new vent would be impossible without a mounting block. I had seen the optional block provided by In-O-Vate on the web site, so I just made a similar one out of 1" Trex planking. Then I had to make a 1/4" thick rubber gasket out of a recycled rubber welcome mat, sealing it with silicon seal. The vent works great - it was exactly what I needed and the quality was exactly as advertised.
