• 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.
• Wall caps must be installed at least 12 in. above ground level or any other
obstruction with the opening pointed down.
• If roof vents or louvered plenmns are used, they must be equivalent to a
4-in. dampened wall cap in regard to resistance to air flow, prevention of
back drafts, and maintenance required to prevent clogging.
