There are two options available in the 1200 series. Our RM 1200 is ideal for roof mount applications, and the IM 1200 is a great interior mount solution for areas with an existing vent.

Suggested Option: 1 x RM 1200
For smaller attic zones with less volume, the RM 1200 is the best option. When a roof mount is not desirable, or for areas with an existing gable vent (or other passive vent) use the IM 1200.
For expansive attic zones with more volume, the RM 1600 provides the most efficient venting solution.
For homes with a single smaller attic zone,
the RM 1200 is an ideal solution.
