New Bath and Dryer Vent Designed for Shingle Roofs

Lifetime Tool & Building Products LLC introduces the Lifetime Bath-Dryer Vent for shingle and metal roofs. This vent is pleasing to the eye, complements any quality installation, and offers a 50-year product warranty. 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 is designed to guarantee a forever water-tight seal.

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. According to the manufacturer, most existing vents have less than half of these needed requirements, which exponentially increases the likelihood of edge leaking. In independent laboratory testing, the Lifetime Bath-Dryer Vent exceeded 110 mph in the ASTM T166-18 – Wind Driven Rain Test.

The product features a 24-gauge galvanized Kynar cap that is clad onto a high-temperature polymer with a heat deflection above 212 degrees Fahrenheit. According to the company, this carefully tested premium polymer ensures that the Bath-Dryer Vent retains its mechanical properties for decades of use.

Additionally, the cap assembly is attached with two black oxide stainless fasteners that are easily removed with a screwdriver and 316L stainless clips for easy removal of the cap for periodic maintenance, perfect for multi-family roofs. A gold anodized aluminum damper, preventing white corrosion, and its passivated stainless-steel axle is mounted on the angled structure to ensure condensation drainage and provides 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.

“I am passionate about creating true solutions for roofing components, and I believe that the Lifetime Bath-Dryer Vent is a game changer,” said Roger Cline, Managing Partner and Chief Engineer at Lifetime Tool & Building Products LLC.
