  2. Securely screw or bolt base plate to roof through the four corner mounting points.
  3. Through the opening, attach ductwork to the fan inlet orifice by using Fantech FC clamps or duct tape.
  4. Refer to the wiring diagram in this guide to complete electrical connections.
  5. Once secured and wired, generously apply tar or other sealant around edges of the base to prevent leakage. Be sure to replace any lifted shingles.

Curb Mounting

  1. The outside dimensions of the flanged curb should be approximately 3/8″ smaller than the outside dimensions of the base. Flanged curbs are available from Fantech.
  2. Center curb around roof opening and securely attach to the roof. It is advisable to put a bead of sealant around the inside edge of the curb.
  3. Before mounting the base on the curb, place a layer of sealant along the top edge of the curb.
  4. Place the unit on the curb and securely attach it with bolts or screws.
  5. Through the opening, attach ductwork to the fan inlet orifice by using Fantech FC clamps or duct tape.
