Gore® Protective Membrane Vents

Gore® vents virtually eliminate condensation by equalizing enclosure pressure

GORE® membrane vents let sealed enclosures 'breathe' allowing airflow in and out. 

Membrane vents eliminate pressure differentials created when sealed enclosures are exposed to rapid, recurring changes in environmental conditions.

Vents improve enclosure failed seals performance. (Read the 5 Year Vent Impact Study)


Gore® Protective Membrane Vents:

Virtually eliminate condensation

Rapid pressure equalization

Block contaminants water, dust, dirt, liquids

Protect against 'board level' electronics failures

Install easily into existing housing designs

Eliminate hazardous gas build up

Improve seal performance eliminate seal failure

Good for altitude change pressure elimination

Eliminate vacuum in enclosures

Vents eliminate enclosure pressure differentials

in harsh environments and protect against corrosion:

  • quick changes in temperature (thunderstorm on a hot, sunny day)
  • altitude changes
  • heating and cooling cycles from internal heat sources
  • rapid temperature drops create a vacuum causing continued stress on housing seals resulting in failure. and pulling in moisture and contaminants
  • wind driven rain, directed hose spray and hazardous battery gas build up 

Pressure effects put high loads on sidewalls that deform and fatigue causing seal leak paths.

Case Studies

Customers across industries improve product performance, life and especially seal performance using protective membrane vents. Using Gore Protective Vents for equalizing pressure and reducing condensation helps Design Engineers in electronics, lighting, enclosures and products that see harsh external conditions.

Gore Vent Fitness for Use

GORE® Protective Vent Application

GORE® membrane vents require a 'fitness for use' engineering review to receive an RFQ.
