Gore’s hydrophobic and oleophobic snap-in vents provide the robust performance and durable protection that can improve the safety, reliability and service life of your sealed outdoor electronic devices. Even in the harshest environments, our vents:
- Rapidly and responsively equalize pressure differentials, reducing seal stress in sealed enclosures through bi-directional air exchange that also reduces condensation.
- Reliably keep solid and liquid contaminants from entering the enclosure, to protect sensitive electronics. This durable protection persists even after the vent has been immersed in liquid.
These sturdy snap-in breather vents are engineered for fast, easy installation on any production line: automated, semi-automated or manual. The snap-fit design is engineered to automatically seat and securely seal the vent to the housing, for reliable venting performance across a broad range of challenging applications:
- Public, Commercial and Industrial Lighting
- Telecommunications Towers, Systems and Components
- Solar, Energy Grid and Batteries
- Heavy-Duty Construction, Material Handling and Agricultural Equipment
- Surveillance, Security, Tracking and Monitoring Systems
The Gore Snap-In Vent Series Difference
Gore’s Snap-In Series portfolio includes four performance options engineered to satisfy a wide range of application requirements, housing materials and enclosure volumes. All GORE Protective Vents for snap-in vent installation include our proprietary GORE Membrane of 100% ePTFE, in either all-membrane or laminate constructions. Our portfolio also offers you the choice of either hydrophobic-only, or oleophobic-and-hydrophobic, protection.
Every Snap-In Series vent undergoes in-line quality inspection at Gore before they are shipped. Most are individually laser-marked, to provide full product traceability.
And of course, the Snap-In Series is backed by Gore’s global technical support personnel and facilities that ensure you can count on our promise: Our products will do what we say they will do.
