Product Overview

Active Ventilation Products solar powered attic fan product line, the Round Back Solar Fan, is excellent at exhausting attic spaces for shingled roofs. The solar panel provides energy to the fan on sunny days to increase the vent's CFM over and beyond a standard non-motorized static vent. The Round Back Solar Fan is made of rust free aluminum, 8 in. Dia exhaust fan with a 2 in. collar height and 13 in. x 13 in. square flange. Its low profile design looks pleasing on shingled roofs. The Round Back Solar Fan has a solid vent cap with an inner vertical louver cylinder to keep out insects, birds, and animals. The inner vertical louver allows air to exhaust without resistance. Model RBSF-8-BL is powder coated with an electrostatic charge in black finish. The powder coating finish adheres extremely well and is more difficult to remove than wet paint which adds to the vents durability and long lasting clean appearance.

  • Excellent choice to removing radiant heat from attic spaces
  • Black powder coating finish is significantly greater at resisting scratching, chipping, and oxidation
  • Solar panel: 5 Watt, 12-Volt
  • Ventilation rule 1:300, application per sq. ft.: 200 sq. ft.
  • Net free air space: 50 sq. in.
  • 2 in. clearance between bottom of vent cap and flange
  • Built-in inner vertical louver cylinder has a 1/8 in. opening between louver blades that will keep out insects, birds, and animals while allowing air to move through the vent without resistance
  • Inner cylinder louver design does not allow accumulation of particle buildup as found in using an insect screen
  • 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
  • 365 CFM at 0.1 SP
  • Helps to reduce energy costs

365 CFM Black Powder Coated 5 Watt Solar Powered Roof Mounted Exhaust Attic Fan is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality fan with minimal instructions I got the 8" fan. Instructions seemed to suggest that It should just be placed on top of shingles even though it did have integrated flashing. I didn't remove the solar panel during installation because this was not in the instructions, but looking at it I believe it could have been easily done allowing for more room to access the flashing and the shingles. The cells work great but until full sunlight is reached, the fan buzzes if not enough electricity is being produced. When it's running, the fan is very quiet, really nothing more than a large computer fan but perfectly adequate for my 160 sqft shed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No! Might keep your electronics cool but not your attic! Was going to order another to see if that would help but now they are over 20% more than I paid for the other two about a month ago. Don't waste your time or your money!
