About this Product

This screen is designed to cover the end of a Type 1 Schedule 40 PVC pipe having an outside diameter of 3.5 inches.

In my installation the screen is attached onto the end of a short piece of PVC pipe with #6 screws and washers. This assembly is then inserted with a friction fit into a 90 degree street elbow air exhaust of a home heating system. I only use it during the spring, summer, and fall months when the furnace is not operating to prevent birds from attempting to roost or build nests in the pipe which can later block airflow and incur a visit by a repair technician and a hefty repair bill. In general it's not a good idea to use a vent screen on an operating heating system in the winter since the screen can encourage blockage by ice and/or snow, preventing proper amounts of air from entering your furnace and combustion products from leaving your furnace.

There are also likely decorative uses in cosplay costume and steampunkish installation applications. At present the screen is only being offered in white or black strong & flexible plastics, however I can activate other color or material options upon request.

Note that the vent does not have pre-fabricated holes at the screw attachment locations however there are small drill starter divets to help you keep the hole centered while drilling. The vent could also be attached in place using adhesives at the end of a PVC pipe.

Also note that this model contains ONE vent screen.
