Can you vent through the roof?

It is fine to go through a roof with the L&L Vent-Sure kiln fumes vent system.

  1. So long as you keep the fan motor within 60 feet of the kiln, and minimise the number of elbows, it will be fine.
  2. You may need to hardwire the fan motor as the power cord it comes with has an in-line on/ off switch.
  3. Air temperature in the duct is less thean 150F.
  4. Remember this is a vent just for the corrosive fumes that come out of clay and glazes when they are fired. This vent system will do nothing to exhaust heat. If this is a small room you will need additional exhaust venting for the heat.
