UC-15I(P) Installation Next to a Trash Compactor


  • Can a UC-15I(P) be installed next to a trash compactor?
  • What is the minimum distance a UC-15I(P) can be installed next to a trash compactor?
  • Why must the UC-15I(P) be installed a minimum of 18" away from a trash compactor?


The UC 15I should not be installed within 18” of a trash compactor to avoid (lessen) the potential for cross contamination which could result in creation of mold.
Refer to the product installation guide for further installation information.
