The ThruWall™ fan moves air from room to room quietly and efficiently. Simple to install in any frame wall from 3-3/4" to 6-1/2" thick. A high quality Thermally Protected motor with balanced fan blade moves up to 110 CFM. Move heated or cooled air between rooms.
PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE STARTING INSTALLATION
The ThruWall™ can be mounted in any normal drywall or paneled stud construction wall with a 3-3/4” to 6-1/2” total thickness.
Start by making sure that there are NO studs, water, drain, electrical or other obstruction in the wall where you wish to install the unit. The power cord of the ThruWall™ is 10 ft long, please verify that the power cord will reach a 110 Volt AC outlet. The use of extension cords is not recommended. Please see the airflow direction label on the housing.
The grilles of your ThruWall™ fan may be painted to suit any decor. Thoroughly wash the grilles with mild household detergent, dry completely, and spray with a quality, fast dry, spray paint.
The installation of your ThruWall™ fan is not difficult, but the cutouts must be accurate.
In the carton you will find:
(1) Telescoping metal sleeve with plastic grille attached.
(1) Telescoping metal sleeve without grille attached.
(1) Loose grille.
(6) #6 Screws.
(6) Wall Anchors.
The ThruWall™ is equipped with a two speed motor. There is a three position switch on the output side of the fan.The switches: position (I) is low speed, center (O) off, and position (II) is high speed.
STEP BY STEP INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Step1. Place the metal sleeve (without the grille attached) against the wall with the flanged edge facing you. Trace the pipe on the outside with a pencil to mark the cutout.
(Refer to picture 1)
Step 2. Cut out the circular opening with a small drywall saw. Cut inside the pencil line. Take care not to damage the edge of the drywall since you will be installing drywall anchors close to the hole to mount the grille. (Refer to picture 2)
Step 3. Project the edge of the cutout onto the inside of the other wall board in three places, approximately 120° apart. Use a small square or a piece of cardboard that has an exact 90° angle to mark the cutout points on the inside of the other wall. The two circular openings must be accurately aligned. (Refer to picture 3)
Step 4. Use a small sharp pin or very small drill bit (1/32“ or smaller) to punch or drill these three marks to the outside of the other wall. (Refer to picture 4)
Step 5. Place the other sleeve, with grille attached, against the outside of the wall and center its location using the three markers that you have made, then trace the outside of the sleeve with a pencil. Cut the circular opening with a small drywall saw. Cut inside the pencil line. Take care not to damage the edge of the drywall. You will be installing drywall anchors close to the hole to mount the grille. (Refer to picture 5)
Step 6. Insert the metal sleeve with grille into the cutout opening (fan output side) and snug the flange up against the wall material, making sure that power cord is hanging straight down.
Step 7. Insert the other metal sleeve into the cutout opening (fan suction side) and snug the flange up against the wall material.
Step 8. Position the unattached plastic grille over the metal sleeve that was just inserted so that the Suncourt logo is at the bottom and one of the mounting holes is in the top center. Mark the location of all 3 wall anchors. Make sure that the grille ribs are nicely square with the floor.
Step 9. Mark the position for the wall anchors on the grille.
Step 10. Remove metal sleeve with grille attached and drill the holes on both sides of the wall for the anchors with a sharp 3/16“ drill bit. Install wall anchors and after re-inserting metal sleeve with grille attached, screw the grilles down snugly.
DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN. (Refer to picture 6)
