    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 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.

  • why cant i use this vent for dryers

    Asked by: sparky
    Thank you for your question on the model 885BL wall cap. This cap is not designed to be used with a dryer. There is a built in bird screen and damper that will collect lint and close down the exhaust function which could harm your dryer. Model WC650 is a wall cap approved for venting dryers when using 4" rigid duct pipe. Contact The Technical Service Group with questions at 800-637-1453.

    Does the spring loaded damper restrict airflow? If so, is it too much for a small bath fan?

    Asked by: Stenton
    Thank you for your question on the model 885BL wall cap with a spring operated damper. The spring operated damper will give some resistance to air movement, but very little. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Can the 885BL wall cap be painted?

    Asked by: Ed
    Thank you for your question on the model 885BL wall cap. There should be no problem painting the 885BL. You would need to sand the surface and prime it properly. You may want to take it to a larger paint store and have them recommend a primer and paint.
