Each Doran Light Tight Darkroom Louver is designed to supply just the right amount of air to a particular model exhaust fan.

Note: exhaust fans work best in a darkroom equipped with fresh air supply louvers or some other kind of air supply. If there is no air supply to the darkroom the fan will be working against a vacuum and can do nothing.

        Super easy installation, lets air in, keeps light out. It does restrict airflow a bit, but I am just using the louver with no fan. I'm sure with the addition of a fan there would be plenty of airflow. The provided screw aren't the greatest (flatheads? really?) so maybe have your own (preferably black) screws ready for a quick installation.

            Another product which does exactly what it is advertised to. Darkrooms are closed in and sweaty. This, combined with the fan, provides much needed relief when working in a small darkroom. Sturdy construction, light weight, good price, and still keeps the light out.

                                    Although I began using digital cameras ten years ago, I continued to shoot film as well. Recently, I decided to take my enlarger out of storage and resurrect my home darkroom, which will be in the kitchen of my apartment. Ventillation was needed and this light tight darkroom fan suited the purpose perfectly. It was installed in a board which covers the window to block light. The unit seems well made and it works as intended.

                                    I installed these louvers in the doors of our small dark rooms to eliminate back pressure created when a door was closed. This cut down on the ceiling lifting causing dust in the air and any dust in the room being disturbed.
