Wall vents also known as wall caps are typically used for air intake or exhaust applications. Most home appliances and bathroom or kitchen fans require an exhaust pipe with vent cap installed on an exterior wall.
FAMCO has a wide variety of metal and plastic wall vents to choose from. The metal wall vents are available in aluminum, galvanized steel, pre-painted steel, powdered coat and copper. The plastic wall vents are molded in HDPE and available in a few different color choices.
With new developments in plastic and injection molding, the High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic models have become more and more popular in recent years. Prior to this technology, plastic roof vents weathered quickly and became brittle long before the life expectancy of the roof shingles. Today’s plastics are built to match the life expectancy of the roof, they also have UV inhibitors and color stabilizer added in to provide greater stability in all weather conditions and prevent fading. Our plastic line includes the air intake vent (AI), the hooded dryer vent with damper (UFH) and the (LH) with moveable louvers.
FAMCO manufactures a wide variety of hooded metal wall vents used for air supply, exhaust, air/moisture removal and with air exchangers. These vents are built with a round or rectangular tube/pipe and can be built with or without a damper and with or without a screen.
We also have a new line of hooded, heavy duty round and rectangular piped wall vents. They come with a screen, damper, spring, gasket and are made from 24 gauge galvanized steel with a Black or Brown powder coat finish.
