HOOD OR WALLCAP
• Terminate in a manner to prevent back drafts or entry of birds or
other wildlife.
• Termination should present minimal resistance to the exhaust air flow
and should require little or no maintenance to prevent clogging.
• Never install a screen in or over the exhaust duct. This could cause lint
build up.
• Wall caps must be installed at least 12 in. above ground level or any
other obstruction with the opening pointed down.
SEPARATION OF TURNS
For best performance, separate all turns by at least 4 ft. of straight duct,
including distance between last turn and exhaust hood.
TURNS OTHER THAN 90¼
• One turn of 45¼ or less may be ignored.
• Two 45¼ turns should be treated as one 90¼ turn.
• Each turn over 45¼ should be treated as one 90¼ turn.
SEALING OF JOINTS
• All joints should be tight to avoid leaks. The male end of each section of
duct must point away from the dryer.
• The duct shall not be assembled with screws or other fastening means
that extend into the duct and catch lint.
• Duct joints can be made air and moisture-tight by wrapping the
overlapped joints with duct tape.
• Horizontal runs should slope down toward the outdoors 1/2 inch per foot.
INSULATION
Duct work that runs through an unheated area or is near air conditioning
should be insulated to reduce condensation and lint build-up.
