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-GR is powder coated with an electrostatic charge in green 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
  • Green 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.
  • Inner cylinder louver design does not allow accumulation of particle buildup as found in using an insect screen
  • 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
  • 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
  • 365 CFM at 0.1 SP
  • Helps to reduce energy costs

Great product so far. Perfect for my 10x20 Shed to vent out some hot air. In the summer (in Las Vegas) I temps inside my shed would get to 140+ degrees F. We'll see this summer, but so far it feels much cooler in there. Be aware of how large this is, it's not really going to cool your whole attic (maybe if you buy like 4 of them), But it works great for my 200 sq ft shed!

Bought two, but 1 of 2 stopped working after a few months. I did some troubleshooting and it turns out the solar panel was defective. It would stop working when it got hot. The company did not honor the five year warranty. They only sent a new motor (which I didn't need), after I had extensively explained that it was the panel that wasn't working correctly.

    Product was defective right out of the box. Fan would not turn under its own power. Unable to use product. Had to return. Left hole in roof with makeshift cover. Won’t be ordering from this company again.

    Quality, quiet, sized for regular small hole openings for easy diy roof swaps. Did it myself with long thin crow bar, tube of Henry's roof caulk, hammer and nails. This device is essential for mitigating hot air pressure imbalance, now air moves again. 2 for 1200 agla, 1 for 400 sf grg. Worked!

    Not bad...
    I purchased this small solar fan to cool roof in my garage. The unit is very lightweight so there is no problem to install it. I removed existing vent and put solar on same spot. Even used same nails. As for performance of the unit: well under 80 F is doing job well, at 90 F I cannot see the effect probably to small capacity for the temperature and volume of air it needs to move. It's been only 10 days after I installed it.

    Great value and performance
    I purchased this product to vent a chicken coup which is basically an 8'X12' shed. Installation was easy although a cut template would have been nice. Adequate flow for this application.

    Really pulls the hot air out of the attic space
    I had added this during a reroof of our doublewide mobile home with the Fabral metal roofing to help pull the heat out of the attic crawl space. The solar fan really pulls the hot air out of the attic space when the sun is full out. But add any clouds at all and it simply stops. I feel it would be a better buy had they added more solar cells for it to operate when the weather is "fair" or "partly cloudy. The temps can still be high during these periods. But otherwise I am happy with the purchase.

    Fan runs well on sunny days, but air movement cfm could stand to be a bit larger. Fair value for the money

                  It does what it says it’s going to do, so I should give it a better rating. But even for 50 $60 it should move more air than it does that little fan is for a small computer. I’m going to retrofit it with a larger fan that will move more air. Anyway who cares have a great day blah blah blah

                              For the cost, it's decent. The fan is smaller than I expected and doesn't really put out much air
