The Dandy “Black Air” High Efficiency light trap is one of Dandy’s most outstanding achievements. Used primarily for vent boxes the HE is the darkest light trap on the market yet has a lower air resistance than traps that offer far less light reduction. This trap provides ultimate darkout while maintaining low static pressure.

The panel sizes for the HE light trap range from 8″ to 14″ in length.

Light traps must be kept a minimum of 6” away from a fan to allow proper airflow and reduce fan restriction. The extended box does just that. By providing a housing unit that can hold a single unit and allow for separation from the fan, the Dandy Extended Housing is an all in one fix for single units. Made from sturdy galvanized metal these units can be customized to fit several common size units.
