12/16/2014 – PVS Series Vent Screens Now Made With Better Materials That Improve Airflow

In an effort to improve quality, all of our PVS series vent screens are now manufactured with 316 stainless steel mesh screens. 316 stainless steel offers even better corrosion resistance than 304 grade stainless steel. Additionally, the welded wire and mesh diameters have changed to enable maximum airflow. Our basis for this change is simple. Vent protection is necessary to prevent unwanted blockages and not cause them. With the changes in our vent screens, they are now the best flowing and most compatible vent protection products available (90% for our rodent screens and 70% for our combined insect and rodent screens). Please stop by our vent screen store to view the new material and product specifications for each model. We believe you will find our PVS series screens to be superior not only in craftsmanship, but also universally compatible with most furnace, hot water heater and boiler venting systems (intake and/or exhaust).

11/29/2014 – Three Inch PVC Vent Screens Now Available

We have just added a 3″ PVC insect vent screen and rodent screen to our store. These models feature max airflow 316 stainless steel mesh screens for maximum compatibility with all high efficiency furnaces, hot water heaters and boilers. Though these models are available for purchase, their availability is limited as we retool manufacturing to build a sufficient inventory to service the needs of consumers, HVAC companies, plumbers and pest control specialists.

11/21/2014 – Improvements to the PVS-IS2 Vent Screen Being Made

One of the biggest problems with unprotected PVC vents, during warm weather, is that all kinds of curious bugs want to explore their way into the inside of homes and businesses. Though the existing 304 stainless steel mesh screen in our PVS-IS2 model vent screen product does a great job at keeping out mosquitoes, bees, wasps and other insects, we are making changes to this product to significantly improve airflow.
