Can i use it to attach to bathroom roof vent cap

my bathoom exhaust goes up to the roof vent cap however the butterfly damper thats just inside the fan motor doesn't really move that well. i was thinking if removing the damping from inside the bathroom and install this below the roof vent cap.
Asked by: troy
you need to have only 1 damper, either at the bathroom fan, or at the roof cap. imo its best to have a damper at the opening of the duct work ( roof cap ), so cold air/hot air from outside doesent penetrate as much in the duct work. i am not a qualified person, check your building code.

Is this suitable for use in a vertical clothes dryer vent?

Asked by: Jackie
No, you want to us standard duct pipe with no damper, the damper would easily collect lint and be a fire hazard

Can this damper be used in a horizontal aplication for venting a range hood.

Asked by: Dale
No, it is a gravity operated butterfly vent, so a horizontal position would cause the vent to remain open.

No stores in town carried one in stock. The staff at the local store were very helpful. They found one on the Home Depot website and printed it out for my reference. Took about a week to get after I ordered it. It fit right in with the new pipes and works great keeping the cold air from intering the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vent Damper Does What It Is Supposed To This galvanized sheet metal fabrication for a vent damper to prevent cold air from leaking back into vents such as bathroom forced air vents is a good design (I'm an engineer) that uses gravity rather than springs to reclose the damper wings. So, proper orientation with gravity in a vertical position is critical to a proper install. The damper half-rounds are held to the center cross-strut with fabric strips that appear to be synthetic material and the longevity of those fabric strips may be in question, but if they hold up, the only other longevity issue is the foam strip used for the seal ring that also serves to quiet the closing of the half-round damper wings. I purchased this size (6" OD) to match a fan that would fit into an existing recessed light hole cut into the horizontal sheetrock in a bathroom. I use a reducer on the top of this damper to neck down from 6" to 3" to increase velocity and save on vent piping costs. But, I have a limited vertical space to work in between the top of the fan cage and some 2x4 bracing over the drop down I am working in. So, one of those cape-type dampers will simply not work in the space I have to work in. Yes, the damper wings do not fully come together in the open position, which does hinder flow somewhat, but not enough to be of concern when reducing from 6 inches to 3 inches further up. I would recommend against spring-closure type dampers unless you cannot mount this type of damper vertically to use gravity alone to close the damper wings. Invariably, springs and the hinges of the wings will get gummed up with lint and other stuff like hair spray in a bathroom environment and damper operation becomes compromised. This damper is a good choice for vertical installations where space limits the use of cape-type dampers or you are minimizing the cost of such installations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purchase of 6" damper The damper works as expected. The only problem is on a windy day it flaps open and closed causing noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent quality very nice, light movement of the damper. Well sealed against backdrafts. Way better than the damper that came with the hood. there is no photo of installed because it is imbedded in the roof insulation.
