The standard roof vent design, one that we have in our Duraflo SquareTop 6050s, has been around in both metal and plastic for over 40 years—and not much has changed in that time

And if you haven’t already, you’ll encounter a barrage of acronyms and seemingly complicated terms, like HGI, FOG, and interceptor.
