Frame that is used on inside of roof with our patent pending outside vent adapters for a 400mm x 400mm opening. This frame will not work in the rear-most roof panel in the Ford Transit 148WB regular length. We have shorter strips for that application, https://diyvan.com/collections/roof-vent-adapters/products/ford-transit-inside-rear-support-strips-for-148wb-and-130wb
Provides material for screws to engage as they penetrate the roof metal. Made from expanded PVC so will not rot, mold or absorb moisture which is typically found around the vent. 14" x 14" inside opening and 16.75" x 16.75" outside dimensions. Available in two thicknesses. 1/2" and 3/4". 1/2" thickness is more flexible and will bend to fit curvature of roof if needed. 3/4" thickness is more rigid so will need a thicker bead of adhesive to make full contact with interior roof surface. Multiple frames can be stacked to make up difference between skin and head liner. Also see our framing strips if more space between inside of roof and headliner needs to be filled.
These frames are not contoured to the ribs, they are flat. Actual thickness may vary by - 1/8" due to variations in the material.
Instructions for use: bond this frame to the inside of the roof skin with 3M Windoweld(TM), Sikaflex 221, or another equivalent adhesive. Use thick (1/2 - 3/4 inch) bead of adhesive to make up space between inside of roof and frame so it is level on the bottom Let cure and then install vent. Can be used to help clamp our vent adapters to outside and then later installed on inside as backing frame.
Interior Backing frame is not to be used together with the framing strips that we offer on other listings.
Construction and method of assembly is patent pending.
