Round Back Static Vent | RBV-3-C4

The 3 inch Round Back Static Vent is 3 inches in diameter with a 4 inch tall collar. In other words, this vent has 4 inches of clearance between the base and the inner louvers. The model RBV-3-C4 has 7 inches of net free area (NFA) and comes with an 8” x 8” square flange.

Where to install:

For a pitch of 3/12 or greater, install 4 feet from the peak in climate zones 1-4. However, if the installment is less than 18 inches from the peak on a roof pitch of 4/12 or greater, this vent is suitable for all climate zones.

The 3 inch Round Back Vent is ideal for roofs with a 3/12 to 12/12 roof pitch.

To determine the number of vents you may need, see our Vent Calculator.

How it Operates:

This static vent is ideal for venting out bathroom fans or range hoods. In addition, the round design is aerodynamic to withstand wind speeds up to 200 mph. The 3 inch Round Back Vent is great for residential roof applications because of its low profile. It can also be painted to match the color of the asphalt shingles.
