    The Defender Access+ opens to provide easy access for cleaning and maintenance. There’s no need to unscrew and remove the Defender Access+ from the wall. The access gate is held in place by a drop-notch connection, making it easy to access the ductwork with brushes and cleaning tools.

    The Defender Access+ with vertical bars protects against pests entering the dryer exhaust system.

    Installation is easy!

    The Defender Premium Vent Cover is constructed of zinc coated steel that is also powder coated to deliver lasting protection. Vertical bars keep critters out while minimizing lint buildup and making it easy to clean.  

    This 8" vent cover allows for an exact fit and universal application so the vent termination is aesthetically pleasing.  Extra fastener holes make installation quick and easy and it can be attached with as few as two screws to make vent cleaning a snap.

    The Defender is the perfect choice to keep out birds and squirrels.  While allowing free-flowing air movement, its patented design effectively blocks intrusion by using a system of bars instead of a screen under the hood.  While the Dryer Wall Vent is the designer's pick for most venting terminations, there are numerous applications for The Defender. Some of these include harsh weather conditions, deterring human intrusion and where housing dictates a certain type of venting hood.

    Available in White, Tan, and Brown.  8 come to a case.
