Gas Regulator Vent Screen Guards

Gas Regulator Vent Screen by IMAC SystemsThe gas regulator vent protector prevents insects, including wasps from nesting in the line and stop other debris and contaminants from obstructing the vent openings. The vent guards are long-lasting and replace the plastic OEM guards that typically degrade over time from UV light, heat, moisture, and physical stress. They also are appropriate in new installations for the termination point of a vent line.

The vent guards are weather resistant and come standard in an aluminum body, though they are available in stainless steel on request. IMAC Systems offers four different styles and standard sizes (though others are available on request). The vent guards are economical, and many sizes and styles are available for quick delivery.
