with those listed on the product data label, use the ratings on the label.
Planning the Installation
General System Layout
The vent system consists of the raised vent itself and a single
Dacor approved remote or in-line blower (see page 6).
• Failure to install an approved remote or in-line blower
or proper duct work will result in a back draft and/or
the insufficient venting of smoke and fumes.
• To reduce the risk of personal injury caused by reaching over a hot appliance, cabinet storage space
located directly above the cooking appliance should
be avoided.
• Follow the instructions and diagrams for minimum
safe clearances and installation location in these
instructions, the appliance installation instructions and
the remote or in-line blower installation instructions.
Failure to do so may result in a fire or safety hazard.
Install the raised vent and cooking appliance so that
they can be removed if service is required.
Refer to the cooking appliance installation instructions
for the minimum cutout dimensions specific to the particular raised vent model being installed.
Plan the installation so that all minimum dimensions
are met or exceeded. All contact surfaces between the
raised vent and any cabinets or walls must be solid and
at right angles.

Planning the Duct Work
• To reduce the risk of fire and to properly exhaust air, be sure to duct air outside the house or building. Do not vent
exhaust air into spaces within walls or ceilings or into attics, crawl spaces or garages.
• Tape all duct joints securely to prevent combustion by-products, smoke or odors from entering the home. Doing so
will also improve system efficiency.
• DO NOT install more than one blower to increase the length of the duct run. Even small differences between blower
air flow rates can greatly reduce the air draw by the raised vent.
You must install one of the Dacor remote or in-line blower
models listed below for the raised vent to operate properly.
See the blower installation instructions for directions. Only
one blower shall be installed.
When connecting the duct work to the back of the unit,
the customer must supply a 3 ¼” X 10” rectangular
transition to make the connection.
For side and bottom exhaust connections, use the supplied ATD2 transition to connect the duct work to the
unit. It transitions between the 1 ⅝” X 16” exhaust outlet on the unit and a 3 ¼” X 10” rectangular duct connection. On bottom exhaust installations cut a hole in
the floor to allow the transition and/or duct work to pass
through the floor (see page 8).

Installation Specifications
On side exhaust installations, allow five inches of space
on the side for the ADT2 exhaust transition plus additional space for the duct attached to it (X).
Make sure duct work does not interfere with floor joists
or wall studs.
With concrete slab construction, “box-in” the duct work
and blower wiring to prevent collapsing or other damage when the wet concrete is poured.
Cross-drafts or air currents from adjacent open windows or doors, heating/air conditioning outlets, ceiling
fans and recessed ceiling lights reduce vent efficiency.
Duct Work Design Tips
Wherever possible, reduce the number of transitions
and turns to as few sharp angles as possible. Two
staggered 45° angles are better than one 90°. Keep
turns as far away from the hood exhaust as possible,
with as much space between each bend as possible.
For best performance, use round duct instead of rectangular when possible, especially when elbows are
If multiple elbows are used, try to keep a minimum of
24” of straight duct between them. Avoid “S” or “back to
back” configurations of adjacent elbows.
Do not use flexible metal duct.
Calculating the Maximum Duct Run Length
For example, for a raised vent system using 3 ¼” X
10” rectangular duct, two (2) 3 ¼” X 10” 90° elbows, a
3 ¼” X 10” rectangular to 10” round transition, and a
REMP16 remote blower:
• From the Blower Maximum Duct Straight Length
table below, the maximum length without transitions
and elbows is 60 feet.
• The equivalent length of each 90° elbow is 15 feet.
• The equivalent length of 45° elbow is 2 feet.
• The equivalent length of the transition is 4 feet.
• The total equivalent length of the above components is:
15 feet + 15 feet + 4 feet + 2 feet = 36 feet.
• The maximum amount of straight duct that can be used
with a REMP16 and the above components is: 60 feet 34 feet = 24 feet.

For best performance, keep the duct run as short as
possible and never exceed the maximums stated at the
The maximum straight duct length for the raised vent
system depends on the model of remote or in-line
blower used with the vent system and the number of
elbows and transitions used. The Equivalent Number
of Feet for each elbow and transition (see table) must
be subtracted from the maximum straight length to
compensate for wind resistance. To determine the
maximum allowable length of the duct work, subtract all
of the equivalent lengths of the elbows and transitions
listed at the right from the Blower Maximum Duct
Straight Length.
* The equivalent lengths of roof and wall caps vary with
model and configuration. For equivalent length, contact the
manufacturer or a qualified HVAC specialist.
