Often, not much thought goes into selecting the type of vent cover to be connected to the dryer exhaust duct at the home’s exterior wall. While there are several types of vents on the market to choose from, the DryerWallVent is built to withstand the test of time.

An array of exceptional features includes aesthetics that stem from its low profile and clean lines, along with easy installation, airflow efficiency and safe, code-compliant venting. The DryerWallVent’s housing is constructed of heavy-gauge Galvalume steel with a lightweight Galvalume steel damper. The durable, corrosion-resistant powder coating makes the DryerWallVent’s shine last a lifetime.


Other vent covers made of plastic become damaged and brittle from the heat and weather conditions. Surfaces crack and crumble over time, rendering the vent useless and leading to replacement. Most plastic vents have horizontal slats where lint becomes trapped between each slat. This lint builds up over time, creating a blockage.

Lightweight vent covers can protrude a good distance from the wall, making them prone to damage from lawn maintenance equipment. These types of vents usually include a screen for the purpose of keeping pests outside. However, screens trap the lint, eventually creating a blockage and Building Code Standards disallow screens for safe venting of a clothes dryer.


The DryerWallVent is well-built, stylish, efficient and is proudly made in the USA. The large damper opening provides superior airflow efficiency to improve the dryer’s performance. Integrated magnets keep the damper closed when the dryer is not in use, keeping pests and elements outside. The low-profile frame, recessed damper and hidden fasteners all complement the home’s exterior.

Easy Installation

Installation is easy as the slightly reduced collar fits well with any 4” duct work. Adding this vent cover to new construction is a breeze with four built-in holes for fasteners that are completely hidden by the damper. The secondary backing plate can be removed during installation to provide additional mounting options with a wider fastener footprint.

For existing construction where the duct opening in the wall is irregular or not completely round, the DryerWallVent No Collar is a good option.

Available in four standard colors, white, tan, brown and black, each with or without a collar. To learn more about this superior wall vent termination, please visit https://www.betterventing.com/wall-vents
