FAQ

How do X Vent Box caps compare in cost to other wall caps?
There are many differences when you look at time as a cost. Our boxes are pre-assembled and can be installed in minutes and do not require any additional attention or return visits. It reduces your overall short- and long-term exposure (liability) because our exhaust vent boxes and sleeves:

1. Stand up to the abuse of the construction process, eliminating your need to replace or repair them.

2. Perform as intended under the harshest environments for many years with little or no maintenance cost.

How do X Vent Box vents and sleeves prevent mold and mildew?
Our patented back-draft damper design prevents exterior air from entering and mixing with conditioned interior air. Ventilation systems without this feature would and do provide the right conditions for mold development in and around the bathroom exhaust fan. In addition, our vents and sleeves prevent corrosion in the dryer duct and assembly.

X Vent Box vents and sleeves also prevent water and sand intrusion. By using our box along with proper construction sealant (like Sika Flex, Dymeric 112) installed in a properly sized rough opening directly on the CMU or PIP surface, water will not enter the building at the box location. We have a monolithic box cavity design that eliminates the seam between the box cavity and the louver. This location, which has and continues to be a direct source of water intrusion and also contributes to mold and mildew, is now completely protected.
