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.
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.
