    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Bought this for bathroom exhaust fan and ran duct work to side of house. Sturdy material, much stronger than Box Stores. Spray painted to match house color making it very discrete.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from strong metal I have used these dampers several times. I live in a salt atmosphere and they hold up really well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product This is a sturdy, well built duct wall cap. The dimensions are true to industry standards. The flapper has just enough weight to not make noise, and light enough to not cause too much back pressure. The flapper also has a nice gasket to keep small bugs out and eliminate the typical flapper clapping. Just what I wanted! I'm not a home improvement professional, but I've done a LOT of home improvement and am an engineer. I know quality when I see it. VentingDirect.com should state the gauge of the metal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality This vent is built like a tank. Very good quality and the bird screen is just what I needed to keep birds from building a nest in the vent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product If you only knew how great these wall caps everyone would order them. Why spend 10.00 at Home Depot for a inferior product. They are strong and built to last.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ceiling fan vent Great vent - much better quality than I have seen in the stores locally plus it comes in black which is less noticeable on the side of the house. Heavy duty metal and metal screen to keep varmints out. Quick delivery.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Value This item is priced right and a wonderful product. The Vent is well made and was very easy to install. The vents from the area hardware superstores don't compare.

  • Backdraft Damper

    Is the included back-draft damper easily removable? Or do you offer a different product without a damper that still includes the bird screen?
    Asked by: need vent with screen and no damper
    Thank you for your question on the model 885AL aluminum wall cap. The spring-loaded backdraft damper is not made to be removed, but it is possible to remove it. We do not have a similar wall cap without a damper and with the bird screen.

    "does Broan-Nutone offer a 4" wall cap suitable for use with clothes dryers?

    Asked by: Laslot
    Thank you for your question on exhaust fan wall caps. We do not have a wall cap that we could recommend for use with a clothes dryer.
