NOTES: Handle the sleeve carefully. If a sub-base is to be used, it may be desirable to assemble it to the sleeve before securing sleeve to the wall.

SLEEVE LOCATION As a general rule the air conditioner should be located in an outside wall to ensure proper distribution of conditioned air. It should be located in a portion of the wall where there is no electrical wiring or plumbing, and where there are no obstructions immediately inside or outside.

STEP 3: Installation of the sleeve in the wall opening

Use lintel, when required, to support brick and block above the sleeve.

1.

Position the sleeve into the wall. Refer to chart on page 1 for roomside projection. The rear (outside) edge of the sleeve should extend at least beyond the outside wall to be able to caulk properly and prevent sealing the drain holes in the rear flange of the sleeve, and to facilitate easy installation of an accessory drain, if desired. (If it is desired to have the rear grille flush on the outside, a drip rail must be installed under the sleeve and caulking applied between the drip rail and sleeve.)

Weatherproof gaps between the exterior and interior walls and the sleeve with caulking or equivalent wetherproofing material.

When using an explosive actuating fastening tool, a special nail (Ref. Ramset #1516SD drive pin 2- lg. - 9/64 dia. with dia steel washer) should be used. No equipment or method should be used that is not in compliance with Federal Register Volume 39, No. 125 or American National Standard Safety Requirements for Power Actuated Fastening System (ANSI A10.3-1977) Power Level of the case load should not be greater than power level 1 identified by a load color gray.

Caulk the entire opening on the inside between the sleeve and the building interior.

STEP 3 (cont.) Installation of the sleeve in the wall opening

IMPORTANT: Install sleeve level from left to right and level from roomside to the outside.

2. Firmly secure the sleeve to the wall structure. Do not drill any holes in the bottom of the sleeve.

STEP 4: Weatherproofing

NOTE: * It is critical to caulk around perimeter of wall sleeve on all four sides on the outside and the roomside where it joins the building to prevent air and water infiltration.
