The DryerJack Series hoods are roof vent terminations specifically designed for dryer venting. Its precision-tuned design creates no resistance, giving a level of performance previously unavailable in the industry. Featuring an industry-first curved damper, this sturdy 26 gauge Galvalume® steel extra clearance style vent is best suited for medium snowfall regions, sloped roofs with flat profile cement tiles or other composite shingles. The removable access door makes vent cleaning and maintenance easier. Does not provide adequate clearance in height for "S" or Barrel Tile roofs.

This medium sized Galvalume® roof cap has a plate (flange) size of 12” wide x 14” and the structure is 6” wide x 8” and about 9” high. It has a 4.12 inch diameter collar that accepts typical residential dryer exhaust conduit. Per building codes, there is no screen in this vent as it is exclusively designed for clothes dryers. Unlike other roof vents, this vent features a unique lightweight damper that is curved to dramatically increase its efficiency. The final opening is 65% larger than the round pipe portion. By far, this is the most efficient roof vent on the market.
For flat roof installs, we recommend a installing our DJK486U (curb style) over a raised curb. Search the part number above.
The collar penetrates the plate about 1.25 inches and is sealed to the plate with a silicone bead. It will work on sloped roofs from 2/12 up to 12/12. Note: Not recommended for use with high-profile roof tiles like "S", Spanish S as there is only 5 inches between the opening and the bottom plate. Bird nest building within would be doubtful due to the slope and shape of the damper. This vent is proudly made in the USA.
