Fitting the DECOR 155x155-100G External Wall Cover Vent Couldn't Be Easier

To begin the installation, ensure the wall opening is clean and clear of any debris. This 100mm diameter opening should be prepared to accommodate the vent cover properly. A clean surface will ensure the vent is securely mounted and functions optimally.

Position the vent cover over the wall opening and use a pencil to mark the locations of the screw holes. This will help in accurately aligning the vent during installation. Drill pilot holes at the marked positions and insert wall plugs to provide a secure base for the screws.

Align the vent cover with the wall plugs and secure it in place using screws. Ensure the cover is firmly attached but be cautious not to overtighten the screws, as this might damage the vent or the wall. This step ensures that the vent cover is securely and properly installed.

Finally, apply a bead of silicone sealant around the edges of the vent cover to create a weatherproof seal, preventing rain and other elements from entering your home. Check the operation of the vent to ensure the gravity-operated blades move freely and close properly when not in use. This final check is crucial for maintaining energy efficiency and reducing drafts.

By following these simple steps, you can easily install the DECOR 155x155-100G External Wall Cover Vent, improving your home's ventilation and energy efficiency.

Upgrade your home’s ventilation system with the DECOR 155x155-100G Cotswold Stone Vent Cover. Ideal for energy-saving ventilation and modern home improvements, this vent cover helps maintain fresh, well-ventilated indoor air.
