What you can't see in the picture is that there is a molded plastic "window screen" across all the openings, and that this is sort of like a children's plastic sand strainer - much less air than a steel screen would pass. I think the right approach would be a piece of aluminum screen across the whole thing and about an inch behind the louvers, so that the whole area is available. This doesn't pass enough air. Maybe if you just want a small air flow... but, for something like a fan, fuggedaboutit... I sent it back. If I was going to keep it, I would have cut out all the plastic screening and modified it, but it wasn't worth it.
This gable vent installed as easily as I envisioned in my head, which is rare. The trim piece was very forgiving and covered up my poorly cut octagon(ish) hole and this seems to be a quality product for a great price.
We put these on as we were siding our house and I couldn't be happier with them. The solid design keeps birds out of the attic and was a dream to install, even on top of a 30 foot ladder. Very very well pleased with the item and the quick delivery.
