New Bath and Dryer Vent Designed for Shingle Roofs

Lifetime Tool introduces the Lifetime Bath-Dryer Vent for shingle roofs. The proprietary design enables the housing structure to mount to the plate without rivets, fasteners and sealants — common leak points in existing vents. The vent assembly is crimped into the seamless deep-drawn plate with an EPDM gasket which guarantees a forever water-tight seal, according to the company. The shingle vent plate is 24-gauge galvanized Kynar with 4 inches of flashing on the sides, 6 inches at the top and 3.5 inches at the bottom. Most existing vents have less than half of these needed requirements, which exponentially increases the likelihood of edge leaking. According to the manufacturer, in independent laboratory testing the Lifetime Bath-Dryer Vent exceeded 90 mph in the ASTM T166-18 – Wind Driven Rain Test, easily surpassing all of the competition. 

The product features a 24-gauge galvanized Kynar cap that is clad onto a high-temperature polymer with a heat deflection above that of boiling water. According to the company, this carefully researched and tested premium polymer was chosen for its extreme performance and its ability to retain its mechanical properties for decades of use. 

Additionally, the cap assembly is attached with two black oxide stainless fasteners and 316L stainless clips for easy removal for periodic maintenance. A gold anodized aluminum damper, preventing white corrosion, and its passivated stainless steel axle are mounted on the angled structure to ensure condensation drainage and provide protection from wind and rain penetration. Its built-in weep holes, wind walls and recessed EPDM noise bumpers help eliminate clatter. The EPDM bumpers also permit a small amount of warm air to pass between the structure and damper to reduce the chance of condensate freezing. A snap-in high-quality polymer frame has a stainless steel screen included for use in bath venting only.

Finishing the assembly is a proprietary 6-inch-high, 4-inch round 26-gauge G90 galvanized drop with a unique button punch/window snap connection assembly. A 4-inch/3-inch reducer is also included.
