    We do not currently manufacture a vent designed to work with this diameter opening.

  2. If mounted vertically (facing downward) is the spring strong enough to keep the damper closed? If not, do you have something you would recommend? Application is bathroom shower vent that leaves the house under an overhand facing toward the ground in New England, so damper is important in the winter.

    No - the spring in this damper would not be strong enough to keep it closed when mounted vertically. For applications like this, we would typically recommend our round under eave vent with weighted damper, found here: https://www.famcomfg.com/product/round-soffit-under-eave-vent-plastic-4inch/

    A

    You will want to check with your range hood manufacture to see which duct size they recommend, but we would recommend our 10" model for a 1,000 CFM range hood.

    The damper can only be removed by cutting off the plastic tabs holding it in place on either side of the vent, so it can be removed, but cannot be reinstalled once removed.

    The screen on this vent is removable, so if you were to use it for dryer exhaust the screen would need to be removed. This would prevent a fire hazard caused by lint buildup.

    Typically we would recommend ordering galvanized steel models, as Galvanized Steel will grip paint much more easily than Aluminum.

    Excellent

    This is our go-to dampered wall vent for all residential exhaust fans. Ordering is easy, the team at FAMCO is friendly and helpful, shipping is fast, and the products exceed expectations. Dampers fit snugly, as they should, but don’t require much pressure to vent properly. Highly-recommended.

    Works as should and as described.

  4. Scott MacFarlane

    Due to limited space I needed a 3-inch exhaust wall vent for the convection microwave and induction stovetop in our new basement kitchenette. This isn’t a size I could find at Ace Hardware or the box stores. What I received was very well designed and manufactured. In addition to the spring assisted damper, I really liked the 8-1/4th inch galvanized pipe that extended through the wall so I didn’t have to mess with difficult connections to the vent. I ordered this last Sunday and it arrived Thursday. Great product and value. My only suggestion to FAMCO is to list this product on Ebay since nothing offered out of Asia compared. I was lucky I found this company while searching the net. Thanks!

  10. Tracy McLean (verified owner)

    The vent is awesome, only complaint is that I wish the corner holes would have been drilled already. Other than that looks like it will last a long time.

  16. Mark Kulis

    Great product, I upgraded my kitchen exhaust config as part of a total kitchen remodel, this replaced a 6″ diameter wall vent with little trouble. Great materials, workmanship, and best of all Made in USA. Famco is my go to for my needs in this product area.

  17. DORR TOTTEN (verified owner)

    Thin Gauge of metal. Protective pest mesh is easy to dislodge

  18. John H. (verified owner)

    When I received the hooded vent the damper was not connected and in the black grommets so I had to finish the assembly after I received it. I’d say quality was fair for the price.

  19. John G. (verified owner)

    Very nice product made exactly as pictured. I have not installed it yet but should work great for my Kitchen hood project.

  20. Tommy McSpadden (verified owner)

    Vent diameter was more than a true 5 inches. I had to modify it and the connecting pipe to make it work. It was more fragile than I expected.

    This is exactly what I’d hoped it would be. Worked perfectly for our exhaust fan over the stove. The spring tension on the damper allows it to open about 2 inches when the fan is on low and fully open when on high. Closes securely when the fan is off. Made in the U.S.A. too. What else can you ask for. Good job guys.

  34. Robert Bennett (verified owner)

    Much better quality and lower price than the one I ordered from Lowes. I returned it. This one worked exactly as I’d hoped. Good job guys.
