A better way to phrase the question is “How many square feet of light trap do I need for my house to operate properly.” We configure light trap square footage based on the total CFM that will be moving through the trap under specific static pressures. The Brown Out, along with an Evaporative Cooling Pad, will allow 350 CFM per square foot of light trap. Please contact a Dandy Light Traps representative for help configuring light trap configurations.
Please allow for 1/2” added space to both your width and height for light trap framing. The framing depth should be 10”. (Framing for a 60”x60” Brown Out will be 60.5”x60.5”x10”)
Using a leaf blower or air compressor to blow out any dust between panels as often as possible is the best way to prevent build-up. The light traps can be pressure washed between flocks for a full cleaning.
