Run a chalk line and install eye screws

(Provided) every four (4') feet on center.

Step 1

(Hinged on the ceiling)

Run a chalk line and install eye screws

(Provided) every four (4') feet on center.

Step 3 (Ceiling Slot)

Hinged from the wall

Not To Scale

To determine distance from ceiling where hinge should be located, run a chalk line on the wall down from the ceiling (½") less distance than overall width of the slot opening.

EXAMPLE

For a three (3") inch air intake slot, mark a chalk line two and one-half (2½") inches down from the ceiling. Fasten the vinyl hinge to the wall.

Line up the flat edge of the hinge with the chalk mark as indicated. Leave ten (10') feet of hinge unfastened at one end of system. Cut and remove ten

(10') foot section of hinge.

To fasten hinge, use large head nail or screw and washer.

Fasten every six (6") inches. Locate fastener one-half (1/2") inch from edge of hinge.

To Fasten Hinge, Use large head nail or screw and washer.

Fasten every six (6")inches.

Locate fastener one-half (½") inch from edge of hinge.

To determine distance from wall where the hinge should be located - Baffle (In the fully closed position), should be at an approximate 45° angle as indicated. Use chart to determine distance from the wall where the hinge should be located. Run a chalk line at appropriate location and line up the flat edge of the hinge with the chalk mark as indicated.

Leave ten (10') feet of hinge unfastened at one end of system. Cut and remove ten (10') foot section of hinge.

Step 3 (Wall Slot)

Hinged from the ceiling

To determine distance from wall where hinge should be located, run a chalk line on the ceiling from the wall (½") less distance than overall width of the slot opening.

EXAMPLE

For a three (3") inch air intake slot, mark a chalk line two and one-half (2½") inches over from the wall. Fasten the vinyl hinge to the ceiling.

Line up the flat edge of the hinge with the chalk mark as indicated. Leave ten (10') feet of hinge unfastened at one end of system. Cut and remove ten

(10') foot section of hinge.

Step 4

Step 5

Starting nine (9') feet from end of hinge, cut a (¼") notch in "T" section of the hinge. Cut every 8' for each section of baffle. This will allow for ease of installation. A soapy water solution will assist in sliding baffle onto the "T" section of the hinge.

Cut off the one(1') foot section of baffle insulation board extending past the plastic extrusion of the first section of baffle panel only. Save this section for the last section installed if required.

Slide the first section onto the hinge at the first notch nine (9') feet from the end of the hinge.

Step 6

Adjust-A-Baffle

Installation

Starting at the second notch in the "T" section of the hinge, slide the second panel onto the hinge. Place a baffle panel connector between each section and allow for expansion by leaving a ¼" space between panels. Repeat this process up to the last section of panel where there is no hinge installed.

The last section of baffle will require the hinge to be inserted onto baffle panel and fastened to the wall. If a full section is needed, insert baffle insulation board previously cut and removed from first section installed. If less than a full section required, cut baffle panel to accomodate space requirement.

Using a soapy water solution, slide the weatherstrip onto the baffle panel plastic extrusion.

Step 7

Polyester lift cord should angle up from the baffle to the screw eye at a 40°-45° angle when in fully closed position. This will determine where to drill a 3/16" hole through the baffle panel for the lift cord connection. Drill the holes every four (4') feet in line with the lift cord screw eye. Reference Step 1 & 3 for typical installation location. Insert cord as indicated.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT RUN THE CORD THROUGH THE ROD OR CABLE SCREW EYE. ALLOW ADEQUATE TRAVEL IN

BOTH DIRECTIONS
