Old Window Fan Vent Thing

    Hello All

    I removed an old transparent plastic Window vent/fan (not powered)
    whilst refurbuing the kitchen window and have managed to break it.
    Ive searched around for a new replacement but have not had much luck
    tracking one down. The hole size is around 7" diameter and the vent
    must be able to be opened and shut. Anyone know where I can get one
    from, i've looked in B&Q, Wickes, Homebase, Focus but nothing really
    matches what I need.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers all

    TIA

    ==============
    Two sizes available. Despite the warning about not being suitable for double
    glazing it is possible to fit one into a DG unit provided that the holes are
    carefully cut and sealed around the perimeter (of the circular holes).

    Watch for the wrap!

    Thats the ticket, in fact its the exact one I broke, except my one
    never had the cord which has been pulled off. I wondered why it was so
    hard to close!

    Thanks very much

    Cheers
