2 x sturdy steel lid with aluminium frame construction 'pop-up' type air vents.
This vent is 'premium grade' because common pop-rivets are not
used in lid construction that can vibrate loose, or leak water - and the pop-up springs are powder-coated black (not easily rusting thin zinc coating). The springs are what
generally fail first with other pop-up vents on ebay.
The smallest size available - these are top quality vents well suited for high speed rally cars.
This smaller size is ideal for ute canopies or other vehicles that require absolute water and dust proofing when closed. The smaller size lid allows it to be very rigid and seal better when closed than some larger pop-up air vents. It also will not put so much pressure onto your roof when installed facing forward into the wind.
Sturdy enough to be installed forward into the wind to scoop air in - or can be installed reverse facing to extract air out when open.
Frame is made of aluminium with rubber seal for exceptional waterproof / dust proof seal when closed.
Steel pop-up lid is press-formed to ensure rigidity and best sealing when closed
Steel lid and spring mechanism are both flat black (powder-coated) to resist rust and scratching
Machined rivets are used in lid and spring pivot points for durability and long-life (other cheaper vents on ebay use pop rivets)
Strong steel spring latch mechanism to allow forward-facing and for catching large volumes of air while driving ( the spring mechanism is the primary failing point with cheaper versions of this type of air vent)
Ideal for trailer, camper, horse float, livestock trailer roofs or off-road vehicles - to pressurise vehicle and minimise dust entering vehicle (when installed forward facing).
These air vents are sometimes called solid-top air vents, rat-trap vents, pop-up vents as well.
Note: see blue picture of interior of horse float with air vents installed in the side of float and roof - a steel frame installed behind is advisable when riveting/bolting to fibreglass roofs or very thin sheetmetal (or install large washers behind the rivets/bolts instead).
Dimensions: Air opening is 190mm long x 100mm wide with 55mm pop-up at front when opened.
External dimensions: 238mm x 145mm x 35mm.
30mm ring-pull handle for inside closing/opening of air vent.
1. Cut a square hole in your roof opening that is 195mm long x 105mm wide
2. Use silicone or sika-flex to seal around the opening and place air vent on the opening (forward or reverse facing)
3. Pop-rivet or bolt air vent to roof installing large washers behind the rivets/bolts (or make a 25mm square tube frame behind it)
Note: If you install one air vent 'forward-facing' at the front of the vehicle; and the other air vent 'rear-facing' you can increase/decrease air flow much better in summer/winter conditions.
Then open both air vents in summer for maximum air flow through your vehicle.
Open only the smaller ‘rear-facing’ vent in summer (located at the rear of vehicle) when there are lots of insects flying around – or for winter to get some ventilation and to reduce risk of rain and cold air entering vehicle.
