Louvers are the vertical openings in the vent, which facilitates the flow of air, while keeping animals, insects, debris, and embers out.  The combination of inner and outer Louvers on our signature “Aura” series of vents and fans are shaped to create a positive vacuum effect which draws air out of the vent, utilizing a physical principle known as the Venturi effect.

The Venturi effect stimulated by even small breezes creates a positive movement of air out of the vent without the need of any part of the vent to move. This movement of air is proportional to the wind speed, and can be measured in Cubic Feet per Minute or Cubic Meters per Minute.

Active Ventilation Products’ Aura PVC Vent Cap Model AV-8-PVC is the perfect solution to exhaust and cap 8 in. Sch. 40 or 80 PVC Pipe. Used for commercial and residential applications, the Aura PVC Vent Cap has an aluminum 1-piece spun lid that prevents rain and snow from entering the PVC pipe verses the turbine vent which is open to the sky and allows rain water to enter in “no wind” conditions. The Aura PVC Vent Cap has a patented, engineered design that continually exhausts air with no moving parts. The vertical louvers in its inner cylinder keeps insects, birds and animals from entering the PVC pipe, allowing optimal air flow and no maintenance. Manufactured 1-piece spun adapter is sized to fit over the straight end of the PVC pipe for an easy and fast installation. Model AV-8-PVC-WT is powder coated with an electrostatic charge in White Semi-gloss finish. Powder coating is significantly greater at resisting, scratching, chipping, and oxidation. The powder coating finish adheres extremely well and is difficult to remove than wet paint which adds to the vents durability and long lasting clean appearance. Made of durable and rust free aluminum, the Aura PVC Vent Cap’s round aerodynamic design can with stand harsh weather and wind forces of up to 200 MPH.
