No flange square foundation vent install: Example: Slide the
square louvered vent into a brick opening or window casing and seal. Attachment option is using short screws
behind the louver faces through the vent wall to snug it up. Then seal it.
Aluminum screen: This is a silver color screen designed to
protect against more violent insect pests.
1/8” aluminum mesh screen.
The frame we use for our vents is called a “Rail
System”. This is a full aluminum tube
for the louvers to attach to and wrap around.
Other manufacturers use a “Track System”. This primitive system uses a C-cap. The louver ends are cut straight and then pop
riveted into the C-cap.
We prefer the rail due to the security and stability it
provides for the foundation vent frame and louvers.
Instead of butt cutting the louver ends straight, we notch
the ends to wrap around the Rail System locking them in place permanently.
In addition, we use a “Wind Shear Buffer” in all our vents. As the wind swoops across a square
foundation vent, it will vibrate the louvers.
Aluminum is the only type of vent we manufacture. It does not rot, rust or even need
painted. Foundation vents come in primer gray to blend with the cinder blocks. But can be painted to any color of choice.
All square foundation vents ship via Fed Ex to all the continental
48 states. If you live outside the US,
