" Nice unit, it does what it's suppose to. You can hear the flap opening and closing when the wind blows, but it's not too loud. "

Cowl doesn't make you scowl!
8 Dec 2015
By
, Bromsgrove
" I bought this as a replacement for the 14 year old one that had finally broken. It's well made and easy to fit. The fixing holes were in exactly the same position so no re-drilling. It looks good and does the job it has been bought for. You can't ask for more! "

Best duct outlet
20 May 2015
By
, Boston
" So much better than the flat multi flap version which constantly bangs and clatters in the wind., eventually breaking. I have also found that the flat vents warp in warm weather. This type is quiet and closes after the fan stops. The brown colour is less obtrusive against the house brick. "

Value for money
16 Oct 2014
By
, Didcot
" Look's good and fixes easily. Should be robust providing you don't have to remove the cowl to often or the locating lugs may break. It's good that fixing holes are concealed but could be a bit wider apart to avoid interference with the vent hole (don't make the vent aperture too big). "

Discreet vent cowl
18 Mar 2012
By
, Glossop
" This cowl looks good when installed. It feels quite flimsy so care is needed when putting it together especially with the internal flap which has two tiny plastic pegs to form its hinge.
Better than a 3 vane cowl in windy or exposed locations "

Jury's out but so far so good.
20 Dec 2015
By
, Nottingham
" Bought two of these though neither had any 'Manrose' markings so not sure if they are the genuine articles. Made from quite thin ABS plastic and needs delicate handling as the lugs forming the hinge on the flap of one of them snapped off when the flap fell out of place as being dismantled ready for being installed. Remedied by a bit of Araldite and two panel pins! Installed easily and quickly and so far (I.e. one week and no gales) seem to work okay. Saw similar device in competitor's outlet which had Manrose label and noted it to be apparently thicker plastic though it was twice the price. If they continue to work as they are then seem good value. If they fail then cheap enough to discard and seek alternative. Screwfix service remains consistently good. "

does the job cheaply and well
17 Mar 2010
By
, Northern Isles
" It is what it is - a plastic vent cover! Made of quite thin ABS; should be durable but I did feel I had to be a bit careful with it when fitting. However, it does make it flexible enough for the cowl to be removed with a gentle squeeze for inspecting and/or fixing duct or whatever without removing the whole fitting. Not much space left for fixings once you've got a 100mm hole thru the wall 'especially if the hole is at an angle as in my case, so take care not to oversize your hole! Perhaps a better design would be fixing tabs on the outside of the frame? "

Earache inducing
11 Feb 2014
By
, Devon
" This is typical of its type. Built down to its low cost. They are designed to stop back-draughts and water ingress & do this generally well.
Where they all fall down is the annoying rattle they produce during gusty weather, and if you have them fitted to your house and maybe the neighbours also do, the cacophony of rattling can be excruciating; especially at night.
Unfortunately I dont think there is a quiet option made- what is required is a damping mechanism on the shutter flap hinge and not a useless bit of sponge which is stuck on some models which just produce more bounce of the shutter.

" No grill as in the picture. I have had this fitted for 15 minutes and i want to rip it off the wall already. The noise from the shutter banging in the wind is REALLY annoying. Worst thing I have ever purchased from Screwfix. I love the shop but this lets your normal quality down. Don't touch it. "
