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-BR is powder coated with an electrostatic charge in brown 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
  • Brown powder coating finish is significantly greater at resisting scratching, chipping, and oxidation
  • Has a 5 Watt high efficiency solar panel
  • 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 in. 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

Could this exhaust fan be installed on the side wall of a cargo container or does it have to be installed on the roof?

Is the solar panel removable? If so how long is the cord and will the extension you sell, US Attic Fan Ext Cord work?

Or can I buy an extension? I need about 30-40 ft cord because my warehouse blocks all direct sunlight

365 CFM Brown Powder Coated 5 Watt Solar Powered Roof Mounted Exhaust Attic Fan is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from No battery back up This product works fine when in direct sunlight only. No light no work .
Date published: 2016-12-13
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fan stopped working three years after purchase Installed four of these and all fans failed within 3 years of installation. Now going back to manufacturer to see if they'll cover the fan failure. They worked fine, even on cloudy days, when the fans were operational and lowered my attic temps 6F, so they do work. Price is now $10 higher than when I bought mine. Previous reviewer questioned the fan's durability as he labeled it a "PC fan", guess he was right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Ventilating Smaller Spaces Terrific solar powered fan for ventilating smaller spaces. The fan is virtually silent, I cannot hear If more than 2 or 3 feet away. I found that the fan still operates with cloudy skies, although at a lower speed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very light duty Unit looks nice and arrives well packed. Does not contain a thermostat. So, it will run even in the winter. The fan is a standard size 120mm computer fan. I would not expect a good lifetime with heavy continuous use in a harsh environment. Normally these are rated at 60-70 cfm. So, the 365 cfm rating is a different standard or an exaggeration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfect Put on roof of 10' × 10' chicken coop to remove excess heat build up, works perfect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for Northern AZ, the land of alot of sunshine Having recently relocated to Northern AZ I noticed that my attic area had a daily temperature of 140 degrees. After investigating solar attic fans I found this one through the manufactures website. I ordered one and it did a great job, but with a flat roof I felt I needed 3 more to cover the area. I found out that Home Depot carried the fans and placed the order there and had them shipped to my house. The temp in the attic has dropped significantly and the product was easy yo install.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PC Fan These were priced a lot better than other solar attic fans, and when it arrived I saw why. The fan in the unit is just a 120 mm PC fan chicken-wired into the top. Because of the open area surrounding the fan, the airflow isn't great right out of the box. You can fix this by sealing it off with some tape/plastic and the airflow is improved markedly. You're probably going to have to replace or oil these fans after a few years, but since they're just PC fans, the parts are readily available, and it's an easy DIY job.
