    I have a small bathroom without a window and will be installing a walk in shower (1200*800) with an over head shower. There will only be 17cm gap between the top of the shower door and ceiling. I have got a Vent-Axia SELV fan (IPX7).

    The fan cannot be installed in the ceiling, so it it best to install outside or inside the shower? If inside, should there be a min distance from corners / ceiling.

    I may have a issue with the ducting, so it ok to have the outside vent at a low level , say 60cm from floor.

    Thanks

    I would think not personally. Can you post a pic of your room but I can't understand why you cannot site this fan yourself. :confused:

    The fan will work best as near to the ceiling as possible, where the steam is.

    If you can't drill through there I'd look to mount the fan high and duct down to the exit.

    Sorry that my question was not clear. The fan will be near the ceiling, but the vent / exit to the outside will be about 1.5m below.

    Thanks
