    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.

    Can this cap be powder coated?

    I want to match the color of the exterior wall so that the cap does not stand out.
    Asked by: Karajaula
    Thank you for your question on the model 885AL wall cap. The 885AL is made from aluminum, so as long as it is primed properly, you should be able to powder coat or paint it.

    Insect screen?

    Can someone confirm if this has an insect screen? I saw a review that indicated it has a spring-loaded draft door. Hopefully it is made like the 6" dia model 641. I recently bought one and am very pleased with it's construction.
    Asked by: Chris
    Thank you for your question on the model 885AL wall cap. The 885AL wall cap has a spring operated back draft damper and a bird screen, not an insect screen.
