This unit seemed to be very well built but after further inspection and installation I found it to be flimsy. I feel it could have been a bit more sturdy. After installation, which was done per instructions, I found that it doesn't close properly, the aluminum shutters are just too light in construction to weigh themselves closed when fan is not operated.

Installed with attic exhaust fan to relieve heat from my garage. Seems flimsy but when installed correctly everything tightens up. Functions as designed. 20 degrees cooler in garage.

I installed this along with a new fan in my garage roof gable. Works alot better than the fixed vent I had. I would like to do the same to the house gable vent but I am concerned about birds and squirrels being able to gain access to the attic so I would add a wire screen to it.

This was a good size for us to use with the attic fan installed. Happy it worked out, since we bought it through the website. Shipping took about a week. No complaints.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Steve98516 Good product. Works well. But, not perfect
Product works well and is easy to install. Louvers are light weight, so the air from my attic fan easily opens them. They also close quietly, again because they are light. All is aluminum, so they won't rust.
My biggest problem was that the aluminum frame did not meet soundly in the mitered corners. There was a gap on each corner that would allow water to infiltrate if the vent is mounted so it is exposed to wind and rain. I used angle aluminum screwed on the outside of each corner to narrow the gap, then caulking to seal them. In the end it seems fine, but did require extra, unexpected effort.

There is another "big-box store" that offers a product at a similar price...except their's is plastic and does not last. I know....I've gone through 3 of them and then I found this one. I would have rated it as "excellent" except that one of the vanes was dislodged in shipping, but was easily repaired.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by conk Good product!
Product is good and would recommend it. You'll have to caulk the corners but that's no big deal (few gaps). Be-careful when handling due to it can be bent. I bent mine while screwing it to fan shroud but it was easy to re-straighten back out. I used mine for a solar attic vent. The fan I bought had a 20 watt solar panel which is not really strong enough to push the louvers completely open so I would recommend using a 40 to 60 watt solar panel. I went ahead and bought a 60 watt solar panel and it blows the lovers wide open! When using a solar fan, you have to keep in mind part of the pressure from the fan has to have enough force to push open the louvers and this will cause the fan to run a bit slower so that is why I recommend the larger wattage for solar use. If you are handy, you can buy a car radiator fan for $50.00 from online auto store, then buy a 60 watt monocrystalline solar panel for $105.00 at amazon. Find a remote controller from attic breeze or some other place and you're all set! Why spend $$$ when you can do it yourself!
