  • Many local codes require that exhaust fans installed in fire-rated ceilings must be protected by dampers, which, in case of fire, protect against the spread of heat and flame. Broan offers a variety of radiation/fire damper solutions to meet most any need.
    • Housings and finishes (motor assembly and grille) sold separately in units of four per carton - purchase housings for rough-in and blower assemblies/grilles later for finishing. Model RDH with Model HD50RDF is ENERGY STAR® Qualified
    • UL classified (UL standard 555C) for use in 1-, 2-, or 3-hour fire-rated floor-ceiling and roof-ceiling designs
    • Warnock Hersey Listing allows use in combustible ceilings with ducted fans

    Thank you for your question on the model 688 exhaust fan. The only motor available for use in the 688 housing would be the original replacement parts. If you need a quieter fan, you would need to completely remove the 688 from the ceiling and replace it with another model. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
