    Ask a Question
    • In the product details it appears the rough wall opening needs to be 17.75" sq, but in the specs its states its is 20.75" sq. Also , it states EF mounts on inside wall. Here is what I have, please indicate which fan will fit the best. I am replacing an existing louvered exhaust fan. The existing wall opening is 20.75" sq. The wall is an 8" block wall with brick veneer, so about 12" thick. I want the new fan shutters to completely cover the hole on the outside of the wall. Inside of the wall does not matter, because it is an equipment room. I would prefer to just remove the old entire fan/shutter assembly, and slide the new fan thru the hole from the outside and screw it off into the brick. Please recommend which of you products will do this. I can frame the inside of the rough opening with 1x12, or 2x12, if necessary leaving a rough opening of 19.25" or or 17.75 respectively, if required. Please advise. Thanks You may call me at 865-679-2205 if this would be easier to discuss by phone.

      Thank you for your question.  Here is a link to the manufacturers spec sheet on for the fan.  It appears as though the shuttered, outward facing dimension of the fan housing is 17 3/4", and the mounting flange is 20 3/4".  The installation guide (also linked below), says that you should be 1/2" larger than the shutter box size (allowing 1/4" on all sides for clearance).  These fans are meant to be installed from the inside of the building, with the flange on the interior side of the hole.
