About This Product

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-WD is powder coated with an electrostatic charge in weatherwood 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.

  • Weatherwood powder coating finish is significantly greater at resisting scratching, chipping, and oxidation

  • 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
  • Built-in inner vertical louver cylinder has a 1/8 in. 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

        Worth the extra $
        Bought the $40 and returned it. This started working the moment it hit the sunlight. Remember, it's not a/c but it will at least keep my shed from being a kiln.

          Put this in my 9' x 4' tool shed a couple weeks ago. Seems to work very well & keeps the temp down.

          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.
