GORE® Protective Vents - Adhesive Vents Product Series - Data Sheet & Installation Guide

Low-profile Adhesive Vents are available in both standard and custom designs, offering the most flexible options: for manual or automated installation, for interior or exterior mounting on enclosures, and for adhesion to rough or smooth substrates. 

Various Protective Vents products

To ensure that our products deliver the performance and reliability that you expect, we conduct various tests and use key performance indicators during vent production.

GORE® Protective Vents - Snap-In Series - Data Sheet & Installation Guide

The Snap-In Series delivers fast reliable installation and durable protection for enclosure volumes of all sizes: from less than 0.5 liters up to 30 liters. Ideal for high-throughput or manual production, the Snap-In Series offers multiple performance options, including new PolyVent XS:  a compact, low-profile vent for today’s smaller, thinner-walled, lighter-weight enclosures.

GORE® Protective Vents - Screw-In Series

The Screw-In Series offers a variety of performance options that durably withstand mechanical stresses and rugged environments. They all provide oleophobic membranes and are hydrolytically-stable, UV- and temperature-resistant. Compare all the PolyVent options, including the enhanced GORE® PolyVent Stainless Steel, now top-rated “IK10” for mechanical impact resistance. It provides exceptional protection that helps enclosures up to 20 liters withstand the toughest mechanical and environmental conditions.

Increase Service Life of Solar Tracking Systems by Equalizing Pressure

Gore’s application engineers collaborated with the Dunkermotoren engineers to evaluate several GORE® Protective Vents in both environmental chamber tests and field tests.

NEMA Ratings and What They Mean

Technical Information

A critical aspect of vent selection begins with defining the level of protection your application, device or housing requires.

IP ratings cannot be “converted” to NEMA ratings, since NEMA requires additional testing not included in IP. However, there are minimum NEMA ratings that will meet or exceed a given IP code.
