The Panfan, however, is located away from the bathroom therefore they are extremely quiet and almost silent.
The Pan Fan System can be installed by a licensed plumber and or an electrician.
The Panfan’s 40mm or 50mm vent pipework is best installed during frame stage at rough-in of services, prior to the plasterboard/tiles going on the walls.
This is because all pipework is installed in the wall cavity and ceiling space.
