*Equivalent lengths of duct pieces are based on
actual tests and reflect requirements for good
venting performance with any downdraft cooktop.
†Measure and list feet of straight duct used. Count
and list the quantity of all other duct pieces for the
“Number Used” of each type.
IMPORTANT:
For maximum efficiency, use the shortest and
straightest duct run possible, with as few fittings
as possible.
For satisfactory performance, the duct
run should not exceed 100 feet equivalent length.
Venting performance is improved by using larger
diameter duct.
