  • The damper or transition is missing


All transitions provided with Wolf hoods come with a backdraft damper built into the transition.

  • Downdraft systems do not have a backdraft damper.
  • Cold-weather installations may require an additional backdraft damper to minimize backward flow of cold air.
  • It should be placed as close to the roof or wall cap as possible.
  • All Wolf Ventilation hoods, except Low Profile Wall Hoods, come with a backdraft damper connected to the transition.
  • Any Wolf transition sold separately as a sales accessory transition does not have a backdraft damper built in or included.
  • A separate damper should be installed to keep out the outside air and anything else that gets into the ductwork.
  • For further ventilation information, refer to the Wolf Ventilation Guide. Refer to the product Installation Guide.
