Rigid Metal Inline Silencer
Please note: the shape of the supplied silencer may differ slightly from the above image. Diameter measurements refer to the spigots and not the whole unit.
Keep Your Grow Quiet
Silencers are great for lowering the noise generated by extractor fans, reducing the friction that occurs as air brushes against the sidewalls of your ducting. Though they won’t make your extraction system completely silent, they will have a very positive impact that will lower the chances of causing unnecessary annoyance, making your indoor garden more discreet in the process.

How the Solid Metal Silencer Works:
In order to maintain an ideal grow-room environment, warm, moist air must either be treated or (as is generally the case) removed from the grow area altogether using a suitable extraction system. Unfortunately, this process generates unwanted noise, a lot of which is caused by the air as it moves over the ridged edges of your ducting. Using a silencer helps to direct the flow of air in a manner that lowers overall resistance levels, keeping your indoor garden as quiet as possible. Though these units are referred to as silencers, it should be noted that they will not completely silence your extraction system. They will, however, have a very positive effect on overall noise levels, particularly if used in conjunction with acoustic ducting.
Using the Solid Metal Silencer:
Fit the silencer directly to the outlet spigot of your extractor fan, ideally using a suitably sized fast clamp. The fast clamp provides a much more secure join than other methods. If the unit is not properly secured and comes loose from the rest of the extraction system, this will render your extraction system ineffective and cause all sorts of headaches. Fast clamps are the securest and most effective way to join the different parts of your extraction system.
Keep the number of bends in the ducting as low as possible and plan the extraction route so that it is as short as possible. As previously mentioned, we also recommend using your silencer in conjuntion with acoustic ducting, in order to maximise its effectiveness.
