Bath Vents

Here is a custom bath vent solution we came up with for a remodel. The home had existing attic mounted remote fans for the bath exhausts with 6" ducting and traditional round ceiling diffusers. Our client was wanting a unique and sleaker look. We came up with this solution after seeing something similar online for a product that was not available in the U.S.

We made a slim box and lined it with 1/4 black HDPE. Then we were able to cut a hole in the top and insert a duct take off for the 6" ducting. This also meant the interior was moisture proof and easy to clean without needing to be painted.

For the lid we install 1/4-20 inserts into the top and threaded bolts into them. We installed rare earth magnets into the back of the cover that aligned with the bolt location. The bolts allowed us to adjust the cover to be flat with the ceiling on all corners. The magnets make it very easy to remove for cleaning.

For the box to ceiling finish detail we installed 5/8 tearaway bead to cover the edge of the 1/2 drywall and allow us to mud it flush with the rest of the ceiling.

Very happy with how it turned out and even better the client is thrilled.
It is what it fix it.
