Include the advanced model DryerJack® and The RoofNeckTM together for best practice installations. The RoofNeck, a transition connection between the internal duct work and external roof vent termination, makes it easier to install and connect the duct work to the roof vent, especially when the HVAC installers and roof installers are not installing at the same time.
The RoofNeck can be installed on the exterior of the roof by the roofing team and can be easily connected to the interior duct work when that is installed in the attic. Conversely, the HVAC team can install The RoofNeck on the attic interior when installing duct work prior to the roof being completed, allowing easy connection of the vent termination when the time comes to attach a non-collar roof vent, such as the DryerJack.
The DryerJack Model DJK477 is an advanced low profile exterior roof vent with a unique curved damper and larger vent opening. The larger opening promotes superior airflow efficiency, exceeding the requirements of dryer exhaust systems. Additionally, it's easy to access for duct cleaning. The damper's unique curvature prevents birds and rodents from entering the dryer exhaust system, keeping visitors out and keeping your exhaust system safe.
This low-profile style vent is best suited for medium snowfall regions, sloped roofs with flat profile cement tiles and other composite shingles. Does not provide adequate clearance in height for "S" or Barrel Tile roofs.
The RoofNeck and the DryerJack Model DJK477 are both proudly manufactured in the USA from heavy 26 gauge Galvalume steel.
*Not designed for flat roof installation.
