At least 110mm from the edges of the mounting surface to the centre of the hole.

As far away as possible from and opposite to the main source of air replacement to ensure airflow across the room (e.g. opposite the internal doorway).

Near the source of steam or odours.

Not where ambient temperatures are likely to exceed 50˚C.

If installed in a kitchen fans must not be mounted immediately above a cooker hob, or eye level grill.

If installing in a room containing a fuel burning device which has a non-balanced flue, it is the installers responsibility to ensure that there is enough replacement air to prevent fumes being drawn down the flue when the fan is operating up to maximum extract. Refer to Building Regulations for specific requirements.

Exhaust air must not be discharged into a flue used for exhausting of fumes from appliances supplied with energy other than electric. Requirements of all authorities concerned must be observed for exhaust air discharge and intake flow rates.

When intended for use in possible chemical corrosive atmospheres, consult our Technical Service Department.

(For overseas markets contact your local Xpelair distributor).

LV100PIR Only - Siting must ensure detection of movement. Care should be taken to avoid any obstructions that may affect detection beams A .

Transformer
