If you do not have a gable end vent to use with our German fan, we have this roof vent option which has been specifically designed for use with powered fans. If your roof framing lumber will not allow for the width of our fan shroud, order the option sheet metal mounting box and mount the entire assembly under this roof vent.
The throat of this vent is large enough so the fan can be mounted directly under the vent which can be used to replace an existing attic fan or create a leak proof opening in your roof to mount our fan under.
Inside the vent, there is a diversion cone to maximize the airflow and minimize restriction by creating a smooth, unobstructed flow of air out of the vent.
These roof vents are for use with fans, other models are Dade County approved for high winds and have been HVI certified. These vents have not galvanized steel components that can corrode or rust over time:
The Aura Ventilator product line is made of durable rust free aluminum. It has 3 components: the vent head, collar and flange. Used for commercial and residential applications, it's round aerodynamic design can withstand harsh weather and wind forces of up to 200 mph. The vent head has three concentric cylinders with slotted vertical louvers. The outer cylinder and middle cylinder are formed together at the edges creating one unit. When air moves against the louvers of the outer and middle cylinders it is directed to create a circular airflow and spins against the inner cylinder. This air movement creates a Venturi effect which produces a vacuum or negative pressure to pull air from within the attic space. The three cylinders are covered with a flat one piece spun lid that prevents rain and snow from entering the vent verses the turbine vent which is open to the sky and allows rain water to enter in “no wind” conditions. The vertical louvers in its most inner cylinder keeps insects, birds and squirrels from entering the vent, allowing optimal air flow and no maintenance. The vent head is attached to the collar with screws making the vent head removable when needed for inspection or duct maintenance. The collar and flange are two separate components formed (beaded) as one unit that is inseparable.
The Aura Ventilator product line comes standard in a mill finish that will continually have a long lasting clean appearance. Powder coating paint option is available in a wide selection of colors to match any building material. The powder coating process is significantly greater at resisting scratching, chipping and oxidation than wet paint. Our products are proudly designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.
Built-in inner vertical louver cylinder has a 1/8th inch opening between louver blades that will keep out insect, birds, and animals while allowing air to move through the vent without resistance
1/8th inch opening between the louver blades and all aluminum ("noncombustible") material meets the requirements of California building code 706A.2 Vents to resist the intrusion of burning embers and flame through ventilation openings
5 year warranty
As with our other online products, this item has an unconditional money back warranty against factory defects and a no questions asked return policy. Like our other products shipping UPS Ground is included with the purchase price.
ORDERING NOTE: If your roof pitch is greater (steeper), than a 6/12 pitch (45 degree angle), you need to specify this in the note section when ordering. There is no extra charge but the vent needs to be modified at the factory for this application.
