NOTE: If you need to install ducts, note that the total

duct length of 3

6" (15.2 cm) diameter round duct should not exceed
120 equivalent feet (36.5 m).
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
" x 10" (8.2 x 25.4 cm) rectangular duct.

If a round duct is required, a rectangular-to-round
transition adaptor must be used. Do not use less than
a 6" (15.2 cm) diameter duct.

will have to be cut to fit, using the tin snips, in order
to allow free movement of the damper.

Elbows, transitions, wall and roof caps,

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 approximate feet
of equivalent length of some typical ducts.

Equivalent lengths of duct pieces are based on actual tests
and reflect requirements for good venting performance with
