telescopic wall vent or roof vent
(available as an optional accessory)
is recommended.

Condensate trap

(optional accessory)
For installations in areas where the
exhaust ducting is exposed to cold
temperatures, we recommend
insulating the exhaust ducting and
installing a condensate trap to collect
and evaporate any condensate which
may occur. Condensate traps are
available for C 125 mm or C 150 mm
When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and, if possible, directly above the
exhaust connection. The arrow on the
housing indicates the direction of
rangehoods designed for use with an
external motor (...EXT models) have an
integrated condensate trap.
