S&P SWF sidewall fans
The Sidewall Fan Series (SWF) of direct drive centrifugal ventilation fans consists of five model sizes ranging from 4 to 8 inch. All models are designed for direct connection in-line with standard diameter round ducting. Airflow performance values range from 119 CFM up to 416 CFM. Each unit also has a built-in spring loaded backdraft damper!
The SWF series utilizes the same powerful (high static) motor found in the popular PV Series fans, yet the SWF series is encased in an exterior mounted housing. The outdoor rated exterior housing provides easy access from the outside of a building or dwelling. This makes the SWF a great solution for installations where attic space or easy indoor access is difficult and not suitable for traditional PV style in-line mounting.

|#6||Q: How quiet is the fan? The fan will be mounted directly outside the kitchen wall and I am using a nutone which is very quiet....
A: If it is going right through the wall, it will be fairly loud...These like some distance and/or some mitigation techniques to keep them quiet.

|#7||Q: This product is listed in the kitchen ventilation section but the installation manual says that it should not be used to exhaust air hotter than 140 degrees. So is this product OK for kitchen stove exhaust?
A: It is fine for kitchens, the likelihood of the air exceeding 140 degrees in the pipe is quite low unless it is right at the stove.

A great fan for applications which require a high airflow to pressure ratio and occupy only the minimum space possible.
