Light traps must be kept a minimum of 6” away from a fan to allow proper airflow and reduce fan restriction. The extended box does just that. By providing a housing unit that can hold a single unit and allow for separation from the fan, the Dandy Extended Housing is an all in one fix for single units. Made from sturdy galvanized metal these units can be customized to fit several common size units.
Our Plastic Framing is made from extruded PVC and is a great option for situations where a continuous run or false wall of light traps is needed. The framing is custom made to the size required. Simply attach with screws to the wall on top, bottom and sides to provide full coverage and support for your light trap section. Our framing supports either the Brown Out or Max-Flow models. In situations where you don’t want to use wood, we offer an optional 10” metal brace. The metal brace can be added to the wall every 2 ½ feet for support.
In the rare cases where extra protection from the weather is needed, these 45° attachments easily mount to an existing FMI vent box.
Light traps should always be installed inside the house and out of direct sunlight.
Framing can be made 16” to 96” tall and can achieve any desired width. Framing with metal or lumber can be achieved for most applications. ***Dandy does not provide Metal or Lumber options – Contact your preferred installer to discuss options.
