Sturdy steel lid and aluminium frame construction 'pop-up' type air vent - the largest size available
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.
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 (and uses only sealed machine rivets, not pop rivets like most other vents sold on ebay that can leak water)
Strong steel spring latch mechanism to allow forward-facing and for catching large volumes of air while driving
Steel lid and spring mechanism are both flat black (powder-coated) to resist rust and scratching (most other vents on ebay have only zinc coated springs that can rust easily and cause the vent to fail)
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).
Air vent opening is 210mm long x 160mm wide with 90mm pop-up at front when opened.
External dimensions: 265mm x 210mm x 35mm.
30mm ring-pull handle for inside closing/opening of air vent.
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 - when installing this air vent to a very thin sheetmetal or fibreglass roof a steel frame installed to rivet/bolt to is advisable (or using large washers behind the rivets/bolts).
1. Cut a square
hole in your roof opening is 222mm long x 170mm 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 need more of these air vents, please email me before you purchase - or see my e-store for several other types of air vents
Note: If you buy two of these air vents and install one air vent 'forward-facing' at the front of the vehicle; and one air vent 'rear-facing' you can increase/decrease air flow much better in summer/winter conditions.
