THERE IS A QUITE SUBSTANTIAL METAL COLLAR WITH A HOOD/HOUSING THAT YOU PLACE WITHIN THE WALL AND HOOD IS OUTSIDE. THE HOOD HAS A FLAP WHICH IS KEPT SHUT UNTIL THE AIR PRESSURE FROM THE FAN FLIPS IT OPEN.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best bang for your buck The fan is very powerful. I currently have the fan installed in an enclosed 3 season room where our hot tub sits. Kicks all humidity out easy peasy! Very good price for a very good exhaust fan. October 11, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bath exhaust fan Good basic exhaust fan. Noisy but moves a good bit of air. The installation is straight forward and instructions are clear. September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better value than advertised!! Was looking for a simple Exhaust Fan, easy to install, simple to operate. This fan is everything as advertised. I installed this fan to an automatic switch on a timer. So when the room light was on the fan would run for as long as the automatic switch was timed for. Having the extra on/off switch was a bonus option I wasn't looking for this fan. September 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LOUD Vague directions had an electrician of considerable experience just winging it. Once installed, it was as loud as a vacuum cleaner. NOT recommended for a small apartment, way too loud. August 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works great We have a very hot garage, it aces the west and gets extreamheat. Our bedroom sits above the garage and it always is hot. We insulated the garage door and the inside of the garage it halped but not enough. Put in the exhaust fan and it helpes to pull out the heat at night and it cools the garage nicely and helps to keep our bedroom cooler. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vent the kitchen for good Being a contractor it was pretty straight forward installtion.i painted the outside to match siding.pigy back wireing to ground fault in kitchen .works great. Only thing the screws to join both halves are so small they are almost inplasable to get in March 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Very easy to install. Once we cut the hole on the back of the shed we install the the fan. Then we put the back cover for the exhaust. We drill the screws to the 2x4 studs. We din't need to hard wire it , it came with an plug to put right into our outlet. So my outlet are connect to my light switch. Now my shed feel much better in the hot summer. Love it. Thanks. July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bathroom Fan - Great Value I needed a through wall fan for a bathroom in my 1880 house and the price was right! Surprisingly, its not as loud as I would have thought. I couldn't be happier with this fan. It's not a easy fan to install. You have to be handy and have general home maintenance skills to install correctly. I junked the switch they give you. Wired in an old work box with a motion timer switch, now it turns off by it self 5 minutes after you leave the room. The exterior shroud could have beefier insulation tape to make a better seal. I may replace it in the fall to better keep the outside air from drafting in when its not in use. May 19, 2015
