General information

NOTE: If you need to install ducts, note that the total duct length of 3  x 10 rectangular or 6 diameter round duct should not exceed 140 equivalent feet.
Outside ventilation requires a HOOD EXHAUST DUCT. Read the following carefully.
NOTE: It is important that venting be installed using the most direct route and with as few elbows as possible. This ensures clear venting of exhaust and helps prevent blockages. Also, make sure dampers swing freely and nothing is blocking the ducts.
Exhaust connection:
The hood exhaust has been designed to mate with a standard 3  x 10 rectangular duct.
If a round duct is required, a rectangular-to-round transition adaptor must be used. Do not use less than a 6 diameter duct.

Maximum duct length:
For satisfactory air movement, the total duct length of 3  x 10 rectangular or 6 diameter round duct should not exceed 140 equivalent feet.
Elbows, transitions, wall and roof caps, etc., present additional resistance to airflow and are
equivalent to a section of straight duct which is longer than their actual physical size. When calculating the total duct length, add the equivalent lengths of all transitions and adaptors plus the length of all straight duct sections. The chart below shows you how to calculate total equivalent ductwork length using the equivalent length in feet of some typical ducts.
