I have to retro-fit an exhaust duct to a previously installed, un-ducted bath fan.
The orientation of the fan would require about 180 or so degrees of bend, and about 8 ft. of straight run. (The Broan website is down, so I cant look up the maximum values.) Anyone have any insight?

I am able to get through to without trouble.

If you still can't get through, tell me what you have in mind and I'll look it up for you.

If Broan is down, try Nutone, the stuff is basically the same, or close for your purposes.
Off the cuff, I think your numbers would get by, or can you change the fan to 80CFM.

Thanks, guys.
I was able to get on today. Still, at the FAQ site, the data I wan't wasn't available. I'll try the site again and look for specs.
