If installing in a wall (surface mounting)

)

1.Mark on the wall the centre of the duct hole.

2.Use this centre to cut an opening through the wall Ø117mm,with a slight fall to the exterior.

3.Fit the wall tube (not supplied) and mortar into place.

If installing in a wall (flush mounting))

)

1.Mark on the wall the centre of the duct hole, and drill a pilot hole through both walls at a slight downward angle.

2.Use the centre to mark a rectangular hole for the inner wall using the dimensions .

3.Cut the rectangular hole through the inner wall.

4.Go outside and cut a Ø117mm hole in the outer wall using the small hole as the centre.

5.Measure the wall thickness. Cut the wall tube, not supplied, so that it is 64mm less than the wall thickness

If installing in a ceiling (surface mounting)

)

This method requires a space above the ceiling, such as a loft or attic, to provide access for 100mm internal diameter ducting.

1.Mark on the ceiling the centre of the duct hole , avoiding ceiling joists and buried cables etc.

2.Cut a Ø117mm hole using the marked centre.

If installing in a ceiling (flush mounting)

)

For Ø100mm ducting:

1.Mark a rectangular hole using the dimensions .

2.Cut the hole, avoiding ceiling joists and buried cables etc.

For flat ducting:

This fan can be installed within a 47mm void without the circular spigot (Fig.). Flat ducting adapter (FDA) available.

Preparing the fan for installation

n

1.Remove the front cover (Fig.)

2.Fit the foam tape around the circular spigot (Fig.).

3.Remove the electrical cover (Fig.). The impeller can be removed to aid access (if required). This is a “push-on/pull-off” assembly.

Mounting the fan in a wall or ceiling (surfacemounting)

1.Place the ducting into the hole and align to the required position.

If wall mounting, ensure that the ducting slopes down and way from the fan

2.Mark the positions of the three fixing holes in fan box (Fig.).

3.If wall mounting, drill three holes 5.5mm diameter for wall plugs. If ceiling mounting , use suitable fasteners (not supplied).

4.Cut out the cable inlet hole, if required, in the surround and slit the cable grommet. Slide the surround over the fan box

5.Pass the electrical cables into the fan box through the rear cable inlet hole and re-fit the cable grommet.

Ensure that cable grommet is in place and a tight fit.

6.Offer the fan box up to the wall or ceiling. Ensure the circular spigot enters the ducting.

7.Fix the fan box to the wall using suitable screws or to the ceiling using appropriate fasteners (not supplied).

If mounting in a wall (flush mounting)

)

The surround is not required.

Fit the ducting to the circular spigot .

1.Assemble the three fan body clamps to the fan box using suitable screws.

2.Slit the cable grommet. Pass the electrical cables into the fan box through the cable inlet hole and cable grommet.

Ensure cable grommet is in place and a tight fit.

3.Offer the fan box up to the wall.

4.Tighten up the three screws, until the fan is clamped to the inner

wall. The fan body clamps will rotate to an automatic stop position. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.

If mounting in a ceiling (flush mounting)

)

The surround is not required.

1.Insert the fan box into the hole and mark four positions using the slots in the flange .

2.Remove the fan box from ceiling and fit four suitable ceiling clips over the edge of the hole, so that the clips align with the marks on the ceiling .

3.Drill 4 pilot holes into the ceiling through the hole of each clip, ensuring not to damage the clip, and fit the clips ensuring correct alignment.

4.Fit the ducting to the circular spigot .

5.Offer the fan box up to the ceiling.

6.Slit the cable grommet. Pass the electrical cable into the fan box through the front cable inlet hole.

Ensure cable grommet is in place and a tight fit.

7.Using suitable screws (Fig.), fix the fan box flange to the ceiling clips.

Terminating the ducting

g

Fit an outer grille to the outer wall.

 

For ceiling mounting, use appropriate ancillaries.

 

 

 

Wire the electrical connections
