    We currently only supply and ship these wall vents with the damper installed - however, the damper can be removed by cutting off or forcibly removing the two plastic tabs on the sides of the vent that hold the damper rod in place.

    Asked on April 9, 2021 8:39 am

    We do offer this vent in a pre-painted finish in either black, brown or white. The SKU number for the painted style is "WVEBP".

    Should solve the wind noise problem

    Looks like what I require. Please let me know what shipping costs are to Keswick, Ontario L4P 0C2, Canada And to 78537 in Texas. Also, does the damper have rubber sound insulation?

  2. Matt Burkholder

    Well Designed!

    We do a high volume of venting for kitchen range hoods. This is the most complete vent cap that I have been able to find giving a consistent design in all popular diameters that features a bird screen and a spring loaded, gasketed backdraft damper.

  3. Mary Ann Bunyan

    Well made product

    Replaced a big box hooded wall vent with Famco product and the difference between the products are remarkable. I installed the product myself and it would have been helpful to have directions. I reached out to a local hvac for supportdirection in reducing the pipe.

  4. Jim


    Perfect- Very well made and reasonable price

  5. Rob

    Worked as advertised

    only issue is that the screen was not installed…

  6. Richard S

    Really like it

    Perfect for our 650cfm range vent. Company shipped quickly. Thank you!

  7. Larry M

    Wall Vent

    Well designed product, price is very reasonable, able to paint to match the exterior wall paint color.

    The only issue is how long it took to deliver the product,

  8. Logan


    High quality design exactly what I needed. Price wise it is comparable to other things on the market but this is the best value.

    Looked for a similar three-inch diameter wall vent on Ebay, but found none. Fortunately, this company’s website showed up on my search engine. Famco’s well-priced wall vent was manufactured and arrived within the same week. The eight plus inch long galvanized pipe eliminated my need for rigging pipe connections within our exterior wall. The exhaust system––especially the spring assisted damper––works great for venting the convection microwave and induction stovetop in our new mother-in-law quarter. As a Do-It-Yourselfer, I couldn’t be more pleased.

    I’m delighted to have a found a good source for exactly this item. All the others I could find were wrong in some important way, especially apparent durability and overall construction (i.e. they looked and felt like flimsy junk). This item cost me a handful of extra dollars and is, by comparison, superbly made. Clean, robust, tight. Shipping was fast and careful. I cannot recommend this US company highly enough. I’d like to shake the hand of the person who manufactured this for me (and then perhaps ask if they’d like to help me install it).

    Fast fabrication and delivery. Exceptional quality. Will buy from them again.

  18. Melissa B. (verified owner)

    Had to wait over a week to get our wall vent. That’s my only complaint. The wall vent is better than anything I could find locally in a hardware store. It’s heavy duty. The gasket around the flap works great. I was worried that the spring would be too strong, but I checked and it opens up fine on the lowest setting on our range hood blower. I would definitely recommend!

  19. Thomas O’Reilly (verified owner)

    High quality product excellent service and communication!!

  20. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Well made, solid. Damper is a little more accessible to wind than goose neck design. Hope it doesn’t flap open too much.

  48. Robert (verified owner)

    Excellent product/ Worked well for my application. I did have to modify it by removing the attached pipe. However, I knew this would have to be done when I purchased the product. The way the product was made made it relatively easy to do.

    great service and product

  50. Jim Holdcraft (verified owner)

    since this item will be used for a range hood exhaust outlet, I added an 1 1/2″ wide gutter with a 1/2″ drain immediately below the insect screen flange – your work is quite good and I would have bought this option if you had such an addition available – thanks!
