I purchased two of these as an alternative to expensive automatic gas-filled cylinder type vent openers and installed them in the end walls of a small poly tunnel greenhouse. After some experimentation, I can say they work great, provided they are mounted in an upright position so the louvres are allowed to move freely. I tried them at an angle at first, simply because I wanted to avoid re-framing my endwalls... oh well. Happily for me, they open and close gradually, beginning at around 40 degrees F and are fully open at around 70F, a detail not mentioned in the manufacturer's information. Someone unfamiliar with the way a bi-metal coil functions might assume otherwise. So, overall, for this unconventional application, they work quite well. I mounted one low on the SE corner wall for intake and one high on the opposite endwall for outtake, based on average prevailing winds in my location(NE slope). Lightweight enough to be adequately supported by two-by-two framing, yet well-made and sturdy. Extremely easy to install! Thanks Midland, for the low price and exceptionally fast shipping. I will likely order another pair to increase cross-ventilation in this ten-by-ten foot space.
