Fan shutters perform important functions, though they tend to be taken for granted. They typically go over the front of an exhaust fan, and they have blades that can be flipped open or shut depending on certain situations or preferences. They don’t seem like much, but even this relatively simple contraption enhances the functions of an exhaust fan.
Exhaust fans are typically installed in walls or roofs, making opening between the interior of a building and the outdoors. Because of this, exhaust fans can let in insects, rain, moisture, smog, dust, dirt, and more. With the use of a shutter, however, you won’t have to worry about ensuring that you’ll be able to keep the outdoors where it should be. You’ll also be able to open up the shutter as needed, but the blades will still prevent things such as leaves, twigs, and small animals from getting in through the exhaust.
In all, fan shutters are especially important when they’re protecting fans and equipment from the elements. Choose the right one from the catalog below.
