1900 Insulated Extruded Aluminum Backdraft Damper (Formerly BDD-I)

The Ventex 1900 (In-Duct Frame)/1905 (Flange Frame)/1907 (Front Flange Frame) is a superior concept in insulated backdraft dampers. This unique all-aluminium product eliminates the shortcomings of previous designs on the market. Pivot pins that quickly wear out or rust out, or rivets that shake loose and pull through the blade are no longer a problem. The extruded blades are engineered to combine strength and durability with smooth operation by virtue of their aerodynamic design. Insulated blades and frame reduce thermal conductivity. Available with factory installed actuator for motorized operation.
