    I would go for any clear external silicone

    Mark-UK, good evening.

    An "observation?"

    Am I correct in assuming that this vent terminates externally?

    if so? there is a very, very high probability that in winter months cold air will [probably] blow into the house?

    Can I suggest that you consider fitting a vent terminal with "loaded" flaps that close when air is not flowing from the house, which in all probability will be most of the time?

    Ken

    Hi Ken,

    The vents (either side) are to facilitate airflow into the roof of my shed so as to prevent build-up of condensation.

    Maybe, but your reply was appreciated, and it taught me something about venting as well :)
